Reading Nick Harkaway's Angelmaker. So far I'm loving it.
"Metal like soft cotton, not linked but threaded; warming in his hand: Woven Gold.
The trick is whispered from time to time in kasbahs and jewellers' shops and conventions and gatherings and markets, almost revealing itself and then vanishing so thoroughly that many consider it a fiction."
Although it does raise the question: Is a story Steampunk if it takes place in Modern day instead of Victorian era?
