Steam Punk

"The Difference Engine" by Sterling and Gibson.

Ada Lovelace. Charles Babbage. Nothing to do with another counterfactuals writer, Harry Turtledove, at all. Sorry.

Kids of today, don't know they were born in the 1930s when our Mystery Guest sat his g/f on a bench in a park and said, see those stars? I am the first and only person in the world who knows what they are and how they work.

She married him.

Steampunk got to love it.
Esp. the invention of the genre name. So IT.
Book sounds fascinating - might give it a go but always have a ton to get through.

Who knows where it is going?

Fun while it lasts, anyway.
