From Library Journal:

This may be cheating a little, given that steampunk as a subgenre didn't exist for more than a century after Wells wrote this book. However, the novel is a major influence on steampunk and is a starting point for many of its tropes-it has a Victorian setting and technology that didn't exist but is described in enough detail to make it seem real. Fantastical settings and creatures play a role when the narrator goes into the future. While this book should already be in almost every collection, it is a great recommendation for the steampunk fan who's read everything.
