‘Tis the season for book lists. I stumbled across Buzzfeed’s list of  55 Steampunk Reads For The Holiday sometime before Thanksgiving, but in the rush of holiday planning somehow forgot to actually post it.

There’s lots of great reads on there, from the classics by Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, to the wildly amusing Parasol Protectorate, and the reliably entertaining Neal Stephenson, George Mann, and Tim Powers. Even better, there’s lots of authors I’ve not yet had a chance to read. My to-read list just keeps getting better and better.


About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
