Hot And Steamy

Science Fiction Alternate History

This is a tight anthology similar to Steampunk'd. 16 tales of romance and steampunk style speculation fill the pages to entice the reader. Although the format is perfect for being able to fit the stories within one's daily life, it is hard to imagine not joyously racing through the entire anthology at one go. The primary reason not to do so would be to make this excellent anthology last longer. Although each tale has its own positive elements, stand outs are Maurice Broaduss's The Problem of Trystan, Jody Lynn Nye's Clockworks, Mickey Zucker Reichert's For the Love of Byron, and Elizabeth A. Vaughan's For Queen and Country, and Marc Tassin's For the Love of Copper. In addition, Donald J. Bingle's Dashed Hopes is a unique work of art.

SUMMARY

From the co-editor of Steampunk'd comes an all-new collection of adventure and romance amid Victorian steampunk settings. Sparks fly in these original stories of a steam-driven airship searching for a lost city, a crazy inventor in a powered wheelchair with a plot to take over the world, and a love story set in an alternate history version of America. Adventure abounds in these stories of love, loss, and danger- and there is plenty of steam!
