Mary Shelley is considered the founder of steampunk, through her novel Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, in 1818. And considering it was about a man of science using science to create life, I think it qualifies as SF!
Wouldn't that be like claiming contemporary movies of the 50's as being the founder of "retro"?
