I'm not just talking what fiction has been done with steampunk/victorian trimmings in a pust devestated society. I'm also trying ot recall an e-zine thing that dealt with scavanging and repurposing and was wondering if anyone knew what and where of it.

There was a sequence in the 1936 film "Things to Come" in which the second world war stretches on for decades, England is in ruins and is being ruled by regional warlords, people are using horses to pull their 1930's era cars because there is no fuel, and the local warlord is trying to get gasoline to launch an attack with a very small fleet of World War I era biplanes. It's a little past the era associated with steampunk, but it shows that the idea of a "Mad Max" type scenario existed and was portrayed on long well before most people would currently think.

And if you read War of the Worlds, there are vague mentions of the period after the defeat of the Martians when the world was rebuilt from the ruins and new human inventions were inspired by the captured Martian technology.

That movie sounds intriguing. Some say that Brittain has never properly recovered from the real WW2

I do remember writing a bit of post-society collapse steampunkery. Only thing I've got left is a link of it as the end story to a set of collected works.

http://ebook.bike/books/46325

Fortunately said link is txt and epub. So... Maybe time to revisit? I dunno. I'd written a continuation of it sometime back here on forums but it got disjoined due to me losing motivation.

Post Script: OH GOD WHY?! It removed all the carriage returns!

Post Post Script: Thank God, FSM, and Science. The EPUB looks in good shape.

Dunno, but sound like the early 2000AD/Judge Dread episodes.

The Apocalypse is stonepunk; just imagine a world where the civilization portrayed on "The Flintstones" reached its technological apex and then was destroyed by catastrophe, and the wandering bands of brutish neanderthals gathered up what remained of the stone television sets and dinosaur-based home appliances and waged bloody combat in their foot-propelled desert dune buggies.
