Hey, guys! So, we’re all familiar with Cyberpunk and Steampunk, but there are so many more alternate histories/speculative science fiction genres out there! I came across this handy-dandy infographic and figured I could share a bit of these punk genres for anyone interested.
Roughly covers the Western world during the mid- to late-19th century (ie: Victorian era, US wild west, etc.), and sometimes up to the Edwardian era.
1920s up through WWII, ending at just about the Cold War.
A cleaner, artistic, more “optimistic” version of Dieselpunk (same time period)
Covers the time of the Renaissance (think da Vinci)
Cold War era, ie: the Space Race
Derivative of Steampunk, but focuses on electricity rather than steam.
Explicit horror and gore
Biotechnology, genetics (part science fiction, part real life)
Nanotechnology, sometimes overlaps with Biopunk
The granddaddy of them all: computer technology, the internet, hackers, etc.
Others not included in the infographic

Don’t forget Nerfpunk, Rococopunk, and bullshit-slap-a-gear-on-it-and-call-it punk.
