This was a fun story, written in an authentic voice. I look forward to seeing the whole collection when it is released. I hope more anthologies will offer a complete story to try out this way rather than just the standard abreviated free samples.

Really good short story

Really enjoyed this short story Clockwork Fagin. Appropriate for preteens, a little too gross/graphic for younger. Great transportation to another world, and the characters have some depth. Might be a good intro to the breadth of sci-fi -- it's not all space ships!

Quite interesting! An incredible retelling of Oliver Twist, set in a steampunk Canada. At times it was grisly, but the writing is great and the characters are compelling.

Recently started reading e-books and I of course started w/ the free ones! Depending on the cost, I plan on buying the anthology this ss comes in. Really enjoyed it!

This book is a great starting point for anyone new to the genre of Steampunk. Also its free so why not give it a read?

If you are new to Steampunk,you have to be open minded reading these types of stories. This author gives good details to bring you in to the world of the orphanage. A very good read.
