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.
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!
