    "The Anubis Gates is a book about time travel by Tim Powers. It has won the Philip K Dick Award. It is highly rated on Amazon, receiving 4 out of 5 stars. There is something very interesting about 1800's London under the power of Ancient Egyptian Gods. It deserves a spot on the list of best steampunk books of all time."

    "This is a real gray area when it comes to Steampunk books. This is more of a cyberpunk theme with Steampunk put in as well. It's a solid book, but it's up to you if the idea perks your interest."

    "This is the first book of a trilogy series set in a steampunk world. There aren't too many steampunk books out there so give this a look."

    "The War of the Worlds is an all time classic. It's basically what started steampunk. I mean, you can't even consider yourself into steampunk if you haven't checked out War of the Worlds. H.G. Wells is the man."

    "I came to this novel from the movie Hugo, directed by Martin Scorcese. At first I didn't know quite what to make of it: a 500+ page, steampunk-inspired story about a kid who lives in the walls of a train station in Paris (?!). But 100 or so pages in, I was hooked. I don't know that this stands among the very best steampunk novels, but it certainly stands out on its own."

    "1,580 customer reviews resulted in just under 5 stars. I love reading books on kindle as well and Amazon offers solutions for purchasing printed books as well. The subject line is on point. This is a great solution."

    "This is a cool book, but I wouldn't really call it steampunk. It has some steampunk elements to it for sure and it may be one of the ones that started out the whole genre with some of its ideas, but as a whole I wouldn't classify it steampunk. Still worth reading."
