Book Review: #AvastAirships An Interesting Anthology Of Tales On Steampunk, Airships And Pirates
Avast, Ye Airships edited by Rie Sheridan Rose is an interesting collection of 18 fiction tales in 312 pages. The variety of stories in this anthology keeps it interesting. There is no fixed length of each and hence you can select as per your choice without bothering to read them in the same sequence as they are presented. Probably each story will connect with you somewhere or the other and you will be thinking of exploring more work from these authors.
You will find every color of life in these stories. There is melodrama, fight, fun, intense drama, fight, violence, romance, love, and fairytale. But there is a common connect in all these stories – airships, pirates, and steampunk. In that manner, this could be termed as a classic anthology of steampunk. All the stories are about pirates. The theme has been well preserved in all the tales. You will find all kind of pirates in these tales ranging from young to old, aspiring to pro, fresh to retiring, rookie to expert. Go on, grab the book Avast, Ye Airships edited by Rie Sheridan Rose and enjoy the interesting stories. In fact to be on a lighter note, you will start loving pirates, and maybe start thinking of becoming one. If that be the case, choose the best one of your choice presented among these stories.
I loved reading all the tales but a special note for these five tales – The Climbers by D Chang, Lost Sky by Amy Braun, Hooked by Rie Sheridan Rose, Lotus of Albion by Steve Ruskin and A Clouded Affair by Steven Southard. Other tales are no less than any of these. Avast, Ye Airships edited by Rie Sheridan Rose is a must read for anyone having an interest in steampunk, adventure, fiction, fun, short stories, sci-fi etc.
In the first story there are Mechanical pirates who break into a mental facility to help patients escape. Offering freedom to all those released one patient finds love in an unlikely source.
In the second story, a ballerina and a one eyed mercenary help regain control of their luxury cruise when attacked by pirates.
All the stories are well written and easy to read. I like that when going to bed I can read just one story and then go to bed as they are all independent from the other.
I received this ebook in exchange for my honest opinion which I have based upon my personal opinion after reading the book
I am lucky enough to have an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) of this wonderful anthology. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. The stories kept me wanting more. Once a story ended, I had to see if the next writer could keep up. I was not disappointed.
Are you looking for variety? This anthology has that. Is time a problem? Not with this book. The stories vary in length, and you do not have to read it in order. You can get a quick fix or plan a “just me” night reading to your heart’s content.
I am truly stunned at the quality of work put into this volume. Some of these authors I will definitely be seeking more of their works.
I was worried, at first, if the stories would all be exactly the same. Not so! There are alien invasions. There are Victorian settings. There are pirates, airships, and adventure galore. There are eighteen stories that will definitely keep you entertained.
This is one book that is certainly worth the money.
