A toyshop owner builds a set of magic clockwork dolls that delight a factory town. A three-inch tall samurai faces a giant iron ogre with only a sewing needle and a coin. A scientist seeks an antidote to his formula gone wrong, with the help of his partner’s beautiful daughter.
All of these stories and more are included in Steampunk Fairy Tales. Written by authors from three different continents, every enchanting tale combines the futuristic Victorian concept of steam and fashion with memorable stories, from the recognizable “Jack and the Beanstalk”, to other popular and unfamiliar works from Germany, France, Italy and Japan.
With steam driven gadgets such as mechanical goggles, hoverboards, and an orchestra of automatons. Steampunk Fairy Tales is a charming and unique collection of works for current lovers of the genre, and those just diving in.

I was quite taken with these "steampunk fairy tales" which as I have explored paranormal works, have become quite a favorite genre. I am amazed at the ingenuity of the authors. It also introduced me to new younger minds in the genre
Many of these stories are very good, and are written after classic tales. The author(s) of these stories add beautiful steampunk twists, and make almost a game of guessing the original tales, even though there is a key in the end. I recommend reading this collection to any other steampunk nerd out there!
