Clockwork Spells and Magical Bells is a collection of short stories based on "magic vs. machine" with an emphasis on fantastical creatures (in this case, elves and dwarves). While there were certainly stories I enjoyed more than others, I found that as a whole the book provided a diverse look into the steampunk world. With a rise in books in this genre, I've gained an appreciation for the variety that can exist within it. This book of stories provides just that. There were some cases in which I wanted to keep reading, as if the story had only just begun. Then there were others where I delighted in finding poetry amongst the prose. I think it added an extra element. I especially liked "Adventure: A Series of Steampunk Hauku" by Michael Greenway which outlined the genre perfectly. From the short stories, I had trouble picking one but I enjoyed the twist in "Discombobulation" by Robert J. Krog and the adventure of "Quest for the Dragon's Scale" by M.R. Williamson. This series of work from a variety of authors offers a bit of everything, from action and adventure to poetry. Great for anyone with a taste for steampunk.
