Steampunk Anthology Book

The term "Steampunk" is applied almost too often these days, with some sub-genres even branching out like dieselpunk, greenpunk, stitchpunk etc. This book, however, aims to preserve the purity of the steampunk mainstream by collecting some excellent stories from around the world. Although none are very recent - most of the included stories are from the 1990s and before - there is a reason for that:

"The goal of the anthology was to collect the iconic first/second wave stories along with some interesting variants, also mostly from ten years ago or earlier," says co-editor Jeff VanderMeer, "Steampunk II, which we're working on now, collects reprints from the last ten years". says Ann Vandemeer, the books editor.

If you are unfamiliar with the genre of Steampunk, have a look at my previous posts HERE.
