As for the author of this article:
“I always imagined that Steampunk would take over the entire universe.
Of course there was a time when we thought we were alone in this big old universe and only our solar system was all that counted.
In those days our single solar-system was simply popping with alien life forms on every planet, some moons, and even here on earth after they invaded us or perhaps were here all along—but we never noticed them!
Fortunately, you can’t criticize my imagination this time as Robert Rankin has also imagined such a crazy universe—yay!”
