Barnes and Noble Bookseller’s Picks for October: Steampunk Edition

Barnes and Noble Bookseller’s Picks: October Steampunk Edition

For over a decade, Barnes & Noble buyer Jim Killen has been a driving force behind Barnes & Noble’s science fiction and fantasy sections. Each month on, Mr. Killen curates a list of science fiction & fantasy titles, which our  contributors then discuss and explore.

Last month, we talked about first installments in epic fantasy series. For October, our ongoing collaboration with Barnes and Noble continues with steampunk, to coincide with’s Steampunk Week, curated by Ay-leen the Peacemaker. Don your goggles, we’re offering up a great cross-section of how to approach steampunk.

Nice to see you guys making some effort at diversity this month, what with actual women in this list. Maybe for November you can find someone who isn't white.

There is always room for improvement, isn't there? There might be a couple in the two anthologies.

For me the advantage of steampunk is that I've read so little of it this list can be useful.

I love this joint venture between and Barnes & Noble. It makes be glad I got a Nook rather than a Kindle. This is an excellent selection of titles.

I'm always on the lookout for good steampunk, Sean O'Hara, so if you've got some specific authors in mind, feel free to name them.
