I have to admit, I've been sort of curious about it for awhile now. The only thing I could say I saw was Wild, Wild West with Will Smith some years back. There are people on NerdWars and Nerdopolis who are really into it - even going to cosplay events. I love the "look" the gears, the spats, hats, granny boots. I like the gearwork creatures, the zeppelins. So when curious..... I checked a book out of the library:
30 stories. Some were just plain weird, some were so short I didn't have a clue what just happened. I'm not saying the book was bad - but I gave it three stars because it just wasn't my thing. Still love the "look" though.
