Description

Playfully mashing up the romantic elegance of the Victorian era with whimsically modernised technology, this entertaining and edgy new anthology is the third instalment in a best-selling steampunk series.

Featuring a renegade collective of writers and artists – from beloved legends to rising talents – the steam-driven past is rebooted and powered by originality, wit, and adventure. Lev Grossman offers a different take on the Six Million Dollar Man who possesses appendages and workings from recycled metal parts, yet remains fully human, resilient, and determined. Catherynne M Valente explores a new form of parenting within the merging of man and machine while Cherie Priest presents a new, unsettling mode of transportation. Bruce Sterling introduces steampunk’s younger cousin, salvage-punk, while speculating on how cities will be built in the future using pre-existing materials and Jeff VanderMeer takes an anti-steampunk perspective as a creator must turn his back on an utterly destructive creation. Going beyond the simple realms of corsets and goggles, this engaging collection takes readers on a wild ride through Victoriana and beyond.
