The Difference Engine, a Novel of the Steampunk Computer Age

So, what would the world of the late 19th-Century be like if William Babbage had succeeded in bringing his mechanical computer, the Difference Engine, into widespread usage?

Cyberpunk great William Gibson teams up with another sci-fi superstar, Bruce Sterling, to envision an answer that question in The Difference Engine, a novel of alternative-history that imagines a world where Babbage did succeed, and the Computer Revolution came to be a century before it happened in our world.

We've got links here below to both the Kindle download and the paperback.
