Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

While our book is being streamlined (it's a slow, sometimes painful process), I'm trying to get together various books, films, etc. - everything that years ago gave us a spark, a challenge, an impetus to create a world of our own.

It's quite a wild mix:

Robert Harris, Enigma - is there a better desription of a secret compound and its inhabitants?

István Szabó, Father - a dozen variants of past that never was, each one more creadible than reality.

Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle, an undisputed AH classic.

Milorad Pavić, Unique Item - a world where dreams (in our case: visions) can serve as evidence.

Frederick Forsyth, The Odessa File - another classic, the ultimate conspiracy/investigation story.

Andrew Niccol, Gattaca - a tale very different from ours but there are more common points than it seems; false identity, for instance.

What inspires YOU?

Some of my biggest sources of inspiration are movies, and some of my favorites are the following:

Howl's Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki

Porco Rosso by Hayao Miyazaki

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

The Rocketeer

and dozens upon dozens of comic books. Also Google is a Godsend when I want to have inspiration for making something a certain way, just type in what I need and it pops right up!

Of all comic books, Corto Maltese was my favorite. Meet Corto the Incomparable, by Hugo Pratt:

Everything from Elmer Kelton (westerns) to old maps, photo collections and films. I love Cormac McCarthy for style.
