you can almost call it the victorian version of cyberpunk. Think gears, goggles, valves, and Steam technology, cyberpunk with wrenches instead of computers... However, in steampunk, the setting (here's me harping on setting...again) is usually a lot less dystopian. Thrown in some alternative history and I think that covers it generally.
