Plans are underway, for this year's jewel of the Sherlockian calendar to put Sherlock Holmes'
Victorian world on a collision course with the science-fantasy found in the works of H. G. Wells and
Jules Verne, thus creating the world of Sherlockian Steampunk.|
What is Steampunk you ask?
Steampunk is a sub-genre of fantasy
and speculative fiction that denotes works set in an era or world where
steam power is still widely used--usually the 19th century, and often
Victorian era England--but with prominent elements of either science
fiction or fantasy, such as fictional
technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells
and Jules Verne, or real
technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier
Captain Nemo, Miguelito Loveless, Professor Challenger and Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen each have ties to Steampunk.
What this means to you is to let your
imagination be your guide. Be creative and have fun. The
sky or even outer and inner space is the limit.
