Which makes me so glad... Im beginning to really dislike the whole steampunk thing, considering how it seems like many fans of Leviathan have no clue what it really is. :/ Also, maybe the forum will get a new, better theme! :p

While I kind of resent your dismissal of the steampunk fans amongst us, I do agree that sci-fi is good stuff in the hands of Scott.

Fair enough. Honestly I'm of even sides about it. I like steampunk and sci-fi evenly. Also a fan of diesl, cyber, bio, and steelpunk as well.

I like sci fi....I used to like dystopians but I am not tired of them. I like fantasy....specially water fantasy (if that makes sense...)

I think he said once that it would be

1) Fantasy
2) Modern/ future New York

Maybe? The 1st thing I think of is Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman...

I'm not a fantasy fan at all. We'll see when it comes.

Edit: Did someone say Sci fi? If so, I'm all for it.  ;D But with a title such as afterworlds... It really sounds fantasy-ish.

I guess it was kinda nice. I was just pissed I paid $15++ for it, when I could have just pirated the ebook. Maybe then I would have enjoyed it more.  ;D

BUT STINA YOU HATE FISH

I think a fantasy/ scifi story would be cool. Like, kind of to the tune of Midnighters but with a more adventurous feel.
