Retropunk Article

All too often it seems when Dieselpunk is mentioned in the media the writer seems to lack an understanding of it. So when I come upon an article where the author presents a solid understanding of Dieselpunk I get excited. 

Varden Frias is one such author.

Recently, Mr. Frias wrote an article for the web site 25 Years Later titled “Retropunk: The Strange Sci-Fi Subgenre”. In his article, he writes about the ever-popular Steampunk and Cyberpunk. He even references an obscure genre-punk named “Cassette Futurism.” However, the article gets really interesting when he writes about Dieselpunk.

It goes beyond knowledge of Dieselpunk. Frias shows a good knowledge of the Dieselpunk sub-genre of Decopunk.

This is an excellent article and well worth the read. You can read the article here.
