In her introduction to this truly mammoth collection, Ekaterina Sedia posits that steampunk shares one, and probably only one characteristic with pornography: It is "difficult to describe beyond the superficial, but one just knows it when one sees it." Actually, Sedia's own intro title ("Looking to the Future through the Lens of the Past") can serve as a reliable portal into this vital, still-evolving new sub-genre. This surprisingly inexpensive, 512-page anthology provides dozens of works by grandmasters of steampunk, including Neil Gaiman, Paul Di Filippo, Mary Robinson Kowal, Lisa Mantchev, Michael Moorcock, Cherie Priest, Catherynne M. Valente, and Cat Rambo.
