I thought this might interest the group. All the links are worth checking out.

I might take a look at these:
Salvage and Demolition by Tim Powers
Steampunk: The Beginning by James Blaylock

Somebody can lay claim to the founder title of steampunk?

The reference here is coining the term "steampunk" to describe some early (1960s-1970s) SF stories that were set in an alternate Victorian time period with SF elements. Some more detail can be found in the Steampunk Wikipedia entry.

However, as noted in that link, Jeter is the first to coin the term and Blaylock an early practitioner of what he was referring to. So, it depends on what you want to count.

Of course, those early stories bear little in common with what is published as steampunk today.

KW Jeter has a new steampunk novel coming out this fall, a sequel to Infernal Devices called Fiendish Schemes
