What is Gaslamp Fantasy Fiction?

Though it’s been around for a while, I’ve just recently come across the actual name of what is now my favorite genre to read, Gaslamp Fantasy Fiction.

I came across it quite by accident while scrolling on Twitter and decided to do a little research on the topic by way of searching the internet.Inspired by the classic work of nineteenth-century authors such as Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and the Brontes, Gaslamp is virtually an alternate take on Victorian times with a fascinating twist.Although similar to Steampunk, another fun variant that usually takes place using the same time period, Gaslamp lacks most of the science and contraptions that make Steampunk what it is.
