Like most anthologies, a mixed bag. Some of the stories were really good, and others I didn't finish due to lack of interest. I hadn't really read any steampunk before and wanted to get a taste of this genre, so it was good for that. Also for an introduction to various authors I hadn't heard of or read before, as well as some I had. ( )

I have never read any Steampunk so this seemed to be a good place to start. There are 26 different short stories in here from stars of the genre like Cherie Priest to others that I have never heard of. As with any short story collection you do get a mixed bag. There were some really good ones that captured the essence of Steampunk perfectly, with the machines, dirigibles and automata making you feel that the time machine that you had just stepped out of had bought you to a very different world. Others didn’t work for me, either because they didn’t have the right Victorian feel, or seem Steampunk enough.

Not bad overall, but not outstanding. It has give me the impetus to explore the genre further though. ( )

As usual with these compilations the quality was variable, but overall this was a good read. Some of the stories were barely what I would call Steampunk - it was like some of the writers thought they'd better add a clockwork object or two to make their stories more steampunk. My favourite stories were Smoke, by Christopher Barzak, Harry and Marlowe and the Talisman of the Cult of Egil, by Carrie Vaughn, Anna In the Moonlight, by Jonathan Wood, Selin That Has Grown In the Desert, by Alex Dally MacFarlane, On the Lot and In the Air, by Lisa L Hannett, The Collier's Venus, by Caitlin R Kiernan, Beside Calais, by Samantha Henderson, and Good Hunting, by Ken Liu. The Jonathan Wood story and the last two mentioned were especially good. Henderson imagines sentient airplanes that graze on grass and need to be 'broken in'. Liu takes Chinese myths and remakes them into something rich and strange and very moving, and very Steampunk. ( )
