Pnemautic Zeppelin... reminds me of the zeppelin from Tarzan at the Earth's Core. As I remember, it was not filled with gas (neither hydrogen nor helium) but contained a vacuum! Must have been made of unobtainium.

I was a Latin major in college, so any novel with the term Romulus in the title gets my attention.

I've been a fan of Richard Preston Jr. Since I read a screenplay of his back in 2006. If anyone can do steam punk justice in a novel form it would be Richard. Can't wait for the full copy to come out
