Topic: New: Genre Tropes

I've added a new tag to organize what I call "genre tropes".

These are themes or ideas that regularly appear in steam- and dieselpunk fiction.

So far, I have:

A disproportionate amount of Nazi stuff... But then, this is dieselpunk.

I'm working on:

  • Big trains in the snow (recommendations welcome here)

  • War airships

  • Strange aircraft of the Third Reich

  • Lost civilizations

These are interesting and wonderful subjects. Thank you, sir! I love Art Deco!

Re: New: Genre Tropes

Rather Jugendstil than Art Deco. As a symbol of the symbiosis of nature and technics.

Other tropes:
- certain historical persons that show up, Lovelace, Tesla and the likes.
- sex robots in feminism
- automatons (giant)
- cyborgs, or party cyborgs. People who are not entierly human
- Mars colony
