Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories

by Kelly Grant, editor and Gavin J. Grant, editor

Published by Candlewick Press, 2011
420 pages
ISBN: trade 978𢠩636-48435

Age 12 and older

Fourteen authors contributed to this collection of short stories that all play within the boundaries of Steampunk even as they stretch them. While reimagining our relationship to machines, the authors move well beyond the typical setting of Victorian England to a wide-ranging list of genres and times. Past, present, and future are all re-cast with Steampunk fittings among this impressive group of stories. The array shines with Cory Doctorow抯 cast of unforgettable empowered orphans, Libba Bray抯 wild women of the American Wild West, and Kelly Link抯 faerie of contemporary Appalachia, among others. Steampunk aficionados and neophytes will both find much to enjoy in this compelling and consistently strong collection of short stories.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
