Wile most "Steampunk" literature is quite mundane and lacking, this anthology peices together some very unique talent. While most of the authors are not big names, their creations are. From the romantic to the ridiculous, this book contains something for everybody, with (in most cases) the characters surprisingly rich and full. My personal favorite was a short-short, Ultimate Weapon, from first-time author Jeff Harris. I would really like more adventures of the rogue-airship thief James. Flight of the dragon also deserves a mention, a story that combines fantasy and brilliant Jules Vernian tecnology by author Rachel Pixie who is also fairly new to the writing game. With this new generation of authors, there is new hope for the scifi fantasy genre. So pull up your fvorite armchair, brace yourself with a stout cup of tea, light your pipe and read it by the fireplace, or while travelling on your favorite steam-powered airship. Fun book, an easy read.
