Steampunk Week

Barnes and Noble Bookseller’s Picks for 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.
