Wallace's smart, provocative collection proves that steampunk is alive and well” by reaching out to the edges of its mashup sensibilities, with 25 pieces that use the aesthetic elements of clockwork, steam, and magic to tell a diverse range of human stories....This is an expansive display of creative world-building by thoughtful storytellers, boldly ranging well beyond its quasi-historical contexts.

If lesbianism offends you, this is definitely not a good choice for you. But it is a fantastic book for anyone that enjoys steampunk and has empathy. These stories will make you feel, and make you ask questions. I would highly recommend reading it.
Unfortunately, the reader has to be bombarded with other stories about cross-dressers and women loving other women. Five Hundred and Ninety Nine stands out, not because it is good, but because it doesn't seem to have anything AT ALL to do with Steampunk. Why was this Thai Sci-Fi, anti-American lesbian love story included? Or did I just answer my own question?
I don't know but surely there are other stories which would have been a better fit for this collection. This collection is enough to make me think that maybe this genre has jumped the shark.
