Great story-by-story review here. The post is part of the B&N Bookseller’s Picks, which is exciting.
“Fourteen stories, and not a dud among them. Educators looking for a textbook to inspire class discussion around the question, “What is steampunk?” should look no further than this oft-iconoclastic collection. For those not so pedagogically inclined, it’s got my vote for the best collection of steampunk I’ve seen so far, not only as steampunk tales, but as damn fine short stories in their own right.”
There’s also an appreciation of Steampunk, edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, so you can get all the punky steam you like!
“The VanderMeers’ first Steampunk anthology (2008), can already be considered a classic, for the quality mix of the stories and non-fiction articles.”
I know that indie bookstores (those closest to our hearts!) ordered a ton of copies of Steampunk! so I hope you will consider them first in your quest for the book.Leave a Comment »
