I know. I'm a slob. But I could change! I've been reading fantasy regency novels, and could get into the style. Carriger has even posted suggestions for improving the stylishness of us uncaring nerds.

Has anyone written any biopunk novels, where 19th century Europe is revolutionized by radical biological technologies? That would be fun.
