There are other stereotypes; you can see a more detailed list here . You can see an overlap of characters with other genres, because the Steampunk genre is open to a good mash-up with other genres. It is a genre that embraces other genres affectionately. Not every stereotype on the list will occur in every Steampunk story, though some novels give it a damn good attempt.

Now re-examine the two images of Helena above. You can immediately identify the picture on the top as ‘The Plucky Girl’, and who often reacts in a fairly typical way. The image on the bottom is not quite so easily pigeonholed. In that movie, Helena is playing ‘The Cathouse Madame with the Heart of Gold’, but Red Harrington isn’t quite a square peg in a square hole. She also runs a carnival, and she has an ivory prosthetic leg that conceals a loaded gun. She has a troubled background that gives her motivation for her actions; she acts rather than reacts.

There is nothing wrong with using the ‘usual suspects’ in a Steampunk story. However, it is lazy writing to stick to the stereotype of a ‘stock’ character, and a genre-savvy reader will soon be able to predict your plot from the selection of stereotypes. If your goal is to be unsurprising and boring, go right ahead. If you want to fully engage your audience, you should grow your characters beyond their stereotypes.

A number of cyberpunk derivatives have become recognized as distinct subgenres in speculative fiction . [1] These derivatives, though they do not share cyberpunk 's computers-focused setting, may display other qualities drawn from or analogous to cyberpunk: a world built on one particular technology that is extrapolated to a highly sophisticated level (this may even be a fantastical or anachronistic technology, akin to retro-futurism ), a gritty transreal urban style, or a particular approach to social themes.

One of the most well-known of these subgenres, steampunk , has been defined as a "kind of technological fantasy ", [1] and others in this category sometimes also incorporate aspects of science fantasy and historical fantasy . [2] Scholars have written of these subgenres' stylistic place in postmodern literature , and also their ambiguous interaction with the historical perspective of postcolonialism . [3]

American author Bruce Bethke coined the term " cyberpunk " in his 1980 short story of the same name, proposing it as a label for a new generation of punk teenagers inspired by the perceptions inherent to the Information Age . [4] The term was quickly appropriated as a label to be applied to the works of William Gibson , Bruce Sterling , John Shirley , Rudy Rucker , Michael Swanwick , Pat Cadigan , Lewis Shiner , Richard Kadrey , and others. Science fiction author Lawrence Person , in defining postcyberpunk , summarized the characteristics of cyberpunk thus:
