Over 30 tales of extraordinary airships, clockwork automatons, intrepid adventurers, corsets and goggles from the best steam punk writers.
An anthology focusing on newer elements of steampunk, one which deconstructs the staples of the genre and expands on them, rather than simply repeating them, with a greater spread both in terms of location and character. This is steampunk with a modern, post-colonial sensibility.
Contributors include: Jeff VanderMeer, Caitlin Kiernan, Mary Robinette Kowal, Jay Lake, Cherie Priest, Cat Rambo, Catherynne M. Valente, Genevieve Valentine and many more.
It's a big book and does a grand job of presenting a wide and varied picture of steampunk - SF, romance, fantasy, fable, Victorian England, the Wild West, alternative empires and far future. There's something for everyone - SFCrowsnest
