Format: Paperback
This anthology has been a welcome escape from dry academic reading for grad school. All of the stories are well-written, action and adventure with rich, relatable characters, in a world I would love to become lost in. Often, even in these works of fantasy, the themes are both tragic and highly relevant, such as in Crescent City, allegorical of the gross mishandling of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath; and Super Dome, which deals with the horrors of war. My favorite story in the book is You Gotta Give Good. Buy it. You'll see why.

Format: Paperback
As much as New Orleans is hailed as being this "mystery city" with all its "old world charm", you don't see a lot of steampunk stories set in its streets. New Orleans by Gaslight fixes that. This anthology of short stories and poetry keeps the city as its main setting. The book is well put-together, with a lot of interesting stories - some a bit titillating. My personal favorite is David Ducorbier's "Arms R.A.C.E.", because the main character is something other than the typical British or American - something not often seen in steampunk stories! It also vilifies the British Empire, which is another thing that isn't normally done. My second favorite would be Robert Cerio's "Twain, Tesla, and the Ghost of the Old Opera House", which is exactly as the title describes - a silly yet scary mystery with America's classic storyteller and steampunk's favorite inventor. If you are a steampunk fan, this is a great little read.

I read this book and found it quite interesting. I have only recently begun reading up on Steampunk and this was my second full-fledged book on it (the first was a story about Oz). This was a good read. Once you pick it up you will find it hard to put down until you have completed reading it. The stories are short which makes you want even more. You will never look at New Orleans the same way after reading this book. I am looking forward to reading even more stories by these authors. Go pick it up, you won't regret it.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because a couple of the stories did seem like they didn't belong. However, I still enjoyed the book as a whole.

This anthology is wonderful. My personal Favorites are Kilkarneys Map, Twain Tesla and the Old Opera House, and Super Dome. the various short stories and smattering of poetry are very well written.Each story definitely gives a taste of a New Orleans that might have been.
