Steamfunk : An offshoot of steampunk, steamfunk is, in American author Balogun Ojetade's words, 'defined as a philosophy or style of writing and visual aesthetic that combines the African and / or African American culture and approach to life with that of the steampunk philosophy and / or steampunk fiction and cosplay' (Source). Steamfunk focuses strongly on the questions of racism, sexism, classism, colonialism and imperialism that steampunk is often said to ignore. Apart from Balogun himself, steamfunk authors include Maurice Broaddus, Valjeanne Jeffers, and Milton Davis. The form is still a relatively small, self-contained sub-genre, and has much in common ideologically with the fantasy sub-genre 'soul and sorcery', works with African or African-American protagonists that draw strongly on African myth and history (as opposed to the largely European worlds and myths of 'sword and sorcery' fantasy works). The related term 'cyberfunk' is also used for African or African-American works that draw on cyberpunk motifs.
