The Mammoth Book of Steampunk

The Mammoth Book of Steampunk Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An anthology that looks to the future through the lens of the past, these 30 mash-ups of past and future push the boundaries of steampunk.

This is steampunk with a modern, post-colonial sensibility. Contributors include: Jeff VanderMeer, Caitlín Kiernan, Mary Robinette Kowal, Jay Lake, Cherie Priest, Cat Rambo, Catherynne M. Valente, Genevieve Valentine, and many more.

Review:

"World Fantasy Award — winning editor Wallace (Fantasy) has compiled an outstanding anthology of 30 stories (including four originals) sure to satisfy even the most jaded steampunk fans and engage newcomers and skeptics. The best steampunk writers, as Ekaterina Sedia says in her introduction, are engaged in an 'examining and interrogation of the past' — critiquing historical sexism and racism via the possibilities created by fantastical technology. The results are delightful: the blinkered male narrator of Cat Rambo's 'Clockwork Fairies,' the steam-powered burlesque of Caitlin R. Kiernan's 'The Steam Dancer (1896),' the lonely Australian wife of Margo Lanagan's Bluebeardesque 'Machine Maid,' and the chameleonic political activist at the center of Catherynne M. Valente's 'The Anachronist's Cookbook.' Aliette de Bodard and Tobias S. Buckell offer vivid re-imaginings of the Aztecs, and Shweta Narayan and Amal El-Mohtar's stories take place in fantastic versions of the Middle East. Each story exemplifies steampunk's knack for critiquing both the past and the present, in a superb anthology that demands rereading. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

The Mammoth Book of Steampunk showcases the very best in the form of stories by Paul Di Filippo, Neil Gaiman, Cherie Priest, and many more.
