Format: Kindle Edition
What if the world was powered by steam, instead of gasoline, and Queen Victoria was more than just a fond memory. That's the premise that fuels steampunk and this collection of 18 stories explores the genre in depth. In addition to men who tinker in brass and steel, you'll encounter vampires, werewolves, zombies, and mechanized men in a variety of locations, including the old west, London, Budapest and Down Under. These stories range from the gripping to the lighthearted and include:

David Boop's sheriff finds his small town invaded by "Grismel Guffyfeld's Quick Drawatorium." Superficially, Guffyfeld's proposition seems straight forward, but Sheriff Patrick takes precautions anyway. Read the story to discover what those precautions are and how well they work.

Meanwhile in Witchery Row, a saloon full of odd-balls complicate things as Lauren Humphries-Brooks' Watchmaker attempts an unusual timepiece repair.

In Dorothy Reede's "A Tale of Steel and Sand" a desert prince contemplates the price of wisdom. And in, Jonathan D. Beer's powerful war story, "Budapest Will Burn" a woman encounters death and betrayal.

Format: Paperback
...that has a story of mine in it featuring robots in the old west. Ha, I could have written a story about the unhappy lives of divorced college professors in their seventies and sold it to the New Yorker, but noooo. I went with robots in Los Angeles in 1919. Subcultural obscurity is the new black, or so I've been told.

Buy this anthology, it contains many fine stories, including The Knife Walker, written by me. It's twenty-five pages long and it has one hell of an ending.
