Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
A great collection of steampunk short stories, with a little something for everyone. Steampunk fairy tales are sort of my thing right now, and this starts off with a neat twist on Cinderella, so they had me from the start. There's a tale of revenge served in a "timely" fashion. An airship pirate discovers a monastery isn't as defenseless as it seems. A couple of great Weird West tales. A funny light romance/comedy of manners (and robotic scarabs). Three of the stories take on the classic "what does it mean to be human?" question, with clockwork/steam powered androids. Of these, the final story from Sevan Taylor, which the cover image is pulled from, felt the strongest to me. It almost felt like a Superman story. Definitely a solid collection for any steampunk aficionado.
