It's been quite a while since read this dystopian/sci-fi/alternative history novel from the author of 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep' (aka 'Blade Runner') but as I recall it had a bunch of interesting bits to it - not steampunk but mixture of dieselpunk-ish and 'modern' tech and a great story. To quote wiki, the novel is about "daily life under totalitarian Fascist imperialism, occurs in 1962, 14 yrs after the end of a longer Second World War (1939–1948)' that the allies lost. Hopefully Mr Scott can recreate some of his big screen magic for this effort.  markf

The second episode of Amazon's tv adaptation of The Man in the High Castle is out now. I've heard the story described as the only literary example of dieselpunk. Though the descriptions I've read doesn't make it sound like more than alternate history.
