I’m excited to say that Steampunk III: Steampunk Revolution is out now. Featuring my story Urban Drift, it’s a splendid collection of grinding cogs and radical concepts that I’m very pleased to be part of. I’ll post something more about my contribution another day, but for now here’s Ann Vandermeer, the book’s editor:
What if Steampunk had a revolution? What if this genre that is so closely tied to the past burst forth into the future – breaking down definitional barriers and forging ahead? Steampunk Revolution features a renegade collective of writers — including steampunk legends as well as hot, new talents — who are rebooting the steam-driven past and powering it into the future with originality, wit, and adventure. Going far beyond corsets and goggles, Steampunk Revolution is not just a ride in your great-great granddad’s zeppelin — now it’s a much wilder ride.
