Welcome to the world as it never was… Enter landscapes awash in steam-powered machinery, Victorian style, and mysterious magic shrouded in the fog of a city night. Join 25 New York Times, USA Today, and bestselling speculative fiction authors as they dive into alternate universes of tinkers, mad scientists, and space-faring soldiers, as well as leviathans, vampires, and demons—along with the cloaked lords and corseted ladies haunting pages of these alternative histories. This limited-time anthology features tales of whimsy and wonder rife with gaslamp masquerades, steam-driven dirigibles, clockwork landscapes, gadgets and gears, and more.

This is a set of short stories/prequels to series and other novels all set in the rather niche urban fantasy style with gothic overtones called Steampunk. Which somewhat unexpectedly I have found myself rather liking.

For me the best of these is the story called Heartless in New Orleans for the basic story idea; and Royal Ruse  for both the storytelling and the idea.

I am giving this compilation a 4 but this is more of an average, some were rather less and there are quire a number  of these short stories with a lot of typos. Once again I rail about he loss of editors to check plot holes, repetitions and basic poor spelling and lack of spell checking.

    Hello. I see that you don't update your website too often. I know that writing content is time consuming and boring. But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from article directories or other blogs from your niche)? And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test. You should try miftolo's tools
