Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories
Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories | Kelly Link, Gavin J. Grant
Imagine an alternate universe where romance and technology reign. Where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Where scientists and schoolgirls, fair folk and Romans, intergalactic bandits, utopian revolutionaries, and intrepid orphans solve crimes, escape from monstrous predicaments, consult oracles, and hover over volcanoes in steam-powered airships. Here, fourteen masters of speculative fiction, including two graphic storytellers, embrace the genres established themes and refashion them in surprising ways and settings as diverse as Appalachia, ancient Rome, future Australia, and alternate California. Visionaries Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant have invited all-new explorations and expansions, taking a genre already rich, strange, and inventive in the extreme and challenging contributors to remake it from the ground up. The result is an anthology that defies its genre even as it defines it.

The only #steampunk I've actually read is Gail Carriger's Finishing School Series but I've seen it pop up so much today I figured I'd use the one that is the next Steampunk on my TBR. #seasonsreadings2016 @RealLifeReading

#seasonsreadings2016 #steampunk I have been renewing this book forever and haven't read one page, lol. I guess I will now. I don't really understand the genre either (????) ❤️the new stickers!

This book is gorgeous inside and out! This large hardcover has a wonderfully tactile feel - and inside is a delightful collection of speculative fiction including stories from amazing writers like Holly Black, Garth Nix, Libba Bray, Kelly Link, and more. Each with its own location and flavor, it's a literary smorgasbord of steampunk awesomeness!
And I am not huge on #steampunk...this is good stuff💕👍💕

I read one story in this collection. At the time, I checked out more than I could handle from the library. Time ran before I could finish. #Steampunk #SeasonsReadings2016 @RealLifeReading

Victoria_C This must be around my house somewhere because I bought it for my son a few years ago and I don't think he ever read it. 3y
Godmotherx5 @Victoria_C I've read her other books. She is a great writer. If you find it, I hope you enjoy it. 3y

This book is beautifully bound and feels amazing to hold. This genre is very much not my thing, but glad I tried it out.
