I found a manga in the library the other day called Hollow Fields, and I say, it's quite steampunk. It's about this girl that ends up in a school run by steam-powered "ancients" that have steam- and clockwork-powered servants and minions. There's all sorts of classes such as Live Taxidermy, Gravedigging/robbing and all others. Has anyone else heard of this? It's a tad juvenile, but I do quite like it.

I read the whole series bundled up in one volume.  The end is quite good and I love the style of it.

I've gotten to the second volume, and they were actually given to me as part of a summer reading program, so I was quite happy. I'm going to see how many they have. How many volumes are there?

Thank you! Hmm. That means I've only one left, then. I might be able to pick it up this week or next, I suppose.

Hello, all;

I need some help with some lists I'm compiling, and followers of this thread are surely qualified to offer advice.

I'm compiling lists of Steampunk literature by format (novels, e-publishing, graphic novels, etc.) I'm encountering a lot of manga being touted as Steampunk, but I'm a bit fuzzy on their bona fides. This becomes a relevant question for both novels and graphic novels, because quite a few manga have been published as what the Japanese refer to as "light novels" (what we call "young adult" novels). As I'm making no distinction between YA and non-YA books in the novels compilation, if they qualify, I'll need to include the relevant light novels.

I've no problem whatsoever including the Fullmetal Alchemist series, since it exists in what I consider to be a very steampunk world (and they treat the woo-woo stuff as science). I've tentatively included the Trigun series as I've read it described as a sort of Weird West tale (although with what little I've seen of the anime, I can see no traces of Steampunkery). The Legend of Korra, on the other hand, along with its parent series Avatar, have appeared on some Steampunk lists, and I can't see why--yet. Apart from one character, I'm not certain Samurai 7 belongs on the list, either. Read or Die and its sequel series Read or Dream also has, to my mind, questionable Steampunk credentials. (Note also, that I have already been scouring the board for intel, and many of these manga were mentioned in other threads on Textual.)

So, before I go about adding these manga and their light novel adaptations series to the list, I would really appreciate some feedback on whether or not any of these belong on a Steampunk list.

(To see the work-in-progress novels list, see:  http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,42449.0.html )

Thanking you in advance for your assistance, I remain,
GCCC
