a great volume to feed your steampunk addiction or introduce you to a wide variety of authors and styles
Wallace’s smart, provocative collection proves that “steampunk is alive and well” by reaching out to the edges of its mash-up sensibilities, with 25 pieces that use the aesthetic elements of clockwork, steam, and magic to tell a diverse range of human stories. . . This is an expansive display of creative world-building by thoughtful storytellers, boldly ranging well beyond its quasi-historical contexts.
