''Corsets, werewolves, airships, robots, women in pants! Steampunk is all this and more.'' Women in pants?! And ''witty,'' to boot? How much ''more'' can there possibly be?

The interest has been there; still waiting for the killer app of story to unlock the genre for them. I suspect I might find one or a few at this panel.
