    KW Jeter is held by some to be a major guiding light in the steampunk movement. He apparently coined the name in a letter to Locus, and both MORLOCK NIGHT (1979) and INFERNAL DEVICES (1987) are held to be early and seminal novels in the subgenre’s development (both long predating THE DIFFERENCE ENGINE, which is sometimes named as the first steampunk novel).

    Obviously the current thirst for steampunk has inspired the publishers to go back to its roots, which is a good idea. Unfortunately, they may run the risk of being lost amongst all the other steampunk titles being published at the moment.
