Howl's Moving Castle is steampunk? (The book, not the anime-- because the anime doubtless is.) Perdido Street Station? Temeraire? Sabriel? "...works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in 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 date." Um yes well. Perdido is an Elsewhere, though I guess it's steampink-ish in feel; but Temeraire... (shakes head) Surely that's straight historical AU fantasy.
