    Yes, I wrote a hub about it. I believe it was born from early novels like The Time Machine and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It revolves around Victorian themes and advanced technology using steam power. Wild Wild West was a steampunk movie, though I can't think of any other movies off the top of my head, and there are a handful of video games that use the genre. If you haven't checked it out yet, I highly recommend it, especially to fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy.

    Yes, and I love it! Watch Studio Ghibli's hit film "Howl's Moving Castle" for an example of it. There are also many contemporary young adult steampunk works of fiction on shelves today. A simple google search will provide you with ample opportunities to read some fascinating works of literature.
