What is Dieselpunk?  To quote Wikipedia:

Dieselpunk is short­hand to describe a fan­ta­sy soci­ety with an indus­tri­al lev­el of devel­op­ment, informed by Cyber­punk sen­si­bil­i­ties.  It is a manip­u­la­tion on an alter­nate, future 1950s from the devel­oped tech­nol­o­gy and soci­ety of the 1930’s, where the Great Depres­sion nev­er arrived thus World War II is still being fought as a pro­longed Cold War.”
