This article on airships has my new favourite sentence in the English language:

Airships in the atmosphere of Venus. More plausible than it might sound at first.
James re-imagines the Barbican as an airship drifting free of central London.

Yes, yes, a thousand times, yes! "A new generation of environmentally friendly 'hybrid airships' could be just about to take off." Anything that makes everyday life more like Steampunk must be good.
