Any new steampunk authors?

I like discovering new authors, and in spite of my age and curmudgeonly attitudes, I find I enjoy steampunk novels.

Any new authors out there, that we should keep an eye on?

I enjoyed The Hanged Man by P.N Elrod but its more Victorian urban fantasy. A psychic and no clockworks or steam although there is a cameo by a dirigible. Has the feel of Newberry and Hobbes or Books and Braun. Future books could go either UF or Steampunk.

Have you read Vermilion by Molly Tanzer?
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24485148

I thought it was a graphic novel for the longest time because of the cover.

The Forever Engine by Frank Chadwick link to sample chapters

Baen Amazon

Spoiler:
Original Trade Paperback. The exciting debut of a steampunk masterpiece from legendary game author and creator of the staple steampunk role playing game, Space: 1889. The stunning unveiling of a perfectly formed steampunk past, from an author who helped define the genre.

London 1888. His Majesty’s airships troll the sky powered by antigrav liftwood as a cabal of Iron Lords tightens its hold on a Britain choked by the fumes of industry. Mars has been colonized, and clockwork assassins stalk the European corridors of power. And somewhere far to the east, the Old Man of the Mountains plots the end of the world with his Forever Engine.

Enter Jack Fargo. Scholar. Former special forces operator in Afghanistan. A man from our own near future thrust back in time—or to wherever it is that this Brave Victorian World actually exists. Aided only by an elderly Scottish physicist, a young British officer of questionable courage, and a beautiful but mysterious spy for the French Commune, Fargo is a man on a mission: save the future from irrevocable destruction when the Forever Engine is brought to full power and blows this universe, and our own, to smithereens.

He's been around for a while. Just in case you haven't heard of him: China Miéville. Start with Perdido Street Station.

Oh yes. A fun book. While not steampunk, his noir SF How Dark the World Becomes is also a good read.

I like a recent offshoot of steampunk known as "flintlock fantasy":fantasy worlds but with Napoleonic era armaments and trappings.

Has anyone read The Iron Assassin by Ed Greenwood? His background is Forgotten Realms traditional sword and sorcery fantasy. Its in Overdrive (woo woo!) but the Goodreads reviews make me wary.

Brian McClellan's Powder Mage series comes to mind.
