    You’re saying it’s basically what the film titled League of Extraordinary Gentlemen wasn’t?

      This goes a bit darker than LXG, and I would argue it is far more sinister and less action-adventure that LXG tried to hit. Penny Dreadful is a gritty, gothic, steampunk descent into madness….and it’s got some surprises.

      I highly recommend it.

    I have to agree that their are a lot of great steampunk writer out there, many who inspired me. I can recommend the late Jay Lake, go back to Burroughs, pick up some great graphic novels as well. I personally love Phil Foglio’s ‘Girl Genius’, and Lady Mechinka by Joe Benitiz.
    I have read Falksen, and while he’s a genteel and charming man, I’d suggest Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker, or ‘The Ministry of Peculier Occurences’ as the definitive steampunk primers.

    (After ‘Tales of the Airship Neverland’, of course.
