I know we often use this board to secretly promote our own work, but I was thinking it wouldn't hurt to maybe shift topics of discussion to the work of others.

We've probably heard of "steampunk" and "cyberpunk" lobbed about as near-buzzwords in the discussion of literary sub-types, but I don't think people give enough value to those weird little fringe-categories like "stonepunk - i.e. The Flintsones" or "Dreampunk, i.e. Alice in Wonderland."

See, I'm a big subgenre fan, and I think the distinction/separation of works into loosely defined genres like "Teslapunk" or "Transistorpunk" gives us an interesting way of conceptualizing not just our own work, but the work of others.

So let's talk - I want to know what people think of the whole "punk" classification and whether or not it's appropriate. Or hey, just talk about your favorite "X-Punk" works or genres, and why they tickle your consumerist parts so well.

Me? Well, I've got a bit of a stiffy for steampunk, but it could just be newbie-infatuation with Retribution Falls, and the idea of motley sky pirates. On the other side of the fence, I always liked me some Neuromancer and Snow Crash, but those are all old news. Let's see somebody throw in some names that aren't overused, eh?

I've always thought it would be neat to have punk-punk.
