Is Harry Potter Steam Punk?
I did a slightly tongue in cheek post on the ROR blog asking if Harry Potter was Steam Punk.
It generated a lot of discussion so I thought I'd throw it out for you guys.
They ride to school on a steam train.
They attend boarding school full of tradition.
They learn latin and wear antiquated uniforms.
They use weird and wonderful machines, which are not powered by steam but by magic.
And don't get me started on how Harry Potter is really Enid Blyton's Famous Five with magic!
