I think I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. I enjoy the steampunk genre, but did not enjoy all of the stories in this anthology. All of the short stories are loosely tied together, that is, they take place in the same world of automatons. I found that I was not a huge fan of them when I was reading this book. My favorite selections were those by Chris Dolley (charming and funny), Pati Nagle (intriguing and interesting characters) and Katharine Kimbriel. The others I found merely average or forgettable. One thing that bothered me was the inconsistencies with terminology, grammar and spelling. However, that is rather easily overlooked. If you like automatons and steampunk, you will probably enjoy this compilation. However, if you dislike either, I suggest you look elsewhere.Was this review helpful?

Eleven short stories as an eBook Authors: CL Anderson, Maya Kaathyrn Bohnhoff, Amy Sterling Casil, Brenda W. Clough, Chris Dolley, Katharine Eliska Kimbriel, Sue Lange, Nancy Jane Moore, Pati Nagle, Irene Radford, Judith Tarr. Interlinked steampunk stories including: automata with souls, airships, pirates, and sinister spymaster Lady Lovelace. These stories span the globe from America to Africa mainly focusing on the transference of souls into machine in various aspects. This is an entertaining addition to the genre. Easy to dip in and out of which is a plus point for readers new to this type of fiction.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
