This is my first collection of short stories as well as my first taste of Steampunk fiction so I certainly had no idea what to expect when I started reading. This book starts off dipping its toe right into the heart of the story, not unlike Ms. White's YA novel Elemental, and the story never really slows down to a lazy pace; making it a very easy and fast read.

In addition, this collection of short stories is actually very interestingly linked. You follow several characters specific stories yet

Life in Steamville, New Hampshire is not like life anywhere else in the world. Zombies, succubi, ghosts, pirates and mad scientists all live together in harmony (mostly) in this quaint town. Although, this motley group of characters is a bit different from you and me, they still struggle with the same human issues that we battle every day: infidelity, finding love, expanding careers, and dealing with jealousy.

To Love or Die in a Steamy-Reamy World is a delightful anthology of short stories that

To love or Die in a Steamy-Reamy World by Emily White is a young adult, steampunk, paranormal collection of 10 short stories. The ten stories are not stand alone stories but linked together, so keep that in mind as you are reading.

It centers around a small town in Steamville, New Hampshire and the various families that live there. In the first few stories they appear to be separate stories but you soon learn they are all mixed together in a very tangled web.

It’s a very quick read and most appro

Ms. White wonderfully succeeded in instilling humor into ten short stories about vampires, zombies, ghosts, and one mad scientist. Each story is brilliantly linked. The Victorian era setting delightfully adds to the humor.

I really enjoyed this short story collection. They were cleverly written and in a few I wished for more. A refreshing change and I just realized I like steam pink.

The unique world of Emily white has created is a fantastic blend of multi-monster mayhem. Although I wish that the book was longer to be come more immersed with the characters.

Emily White is a nerd.

She prefers her men fully clothed and donning bowties, her commas British, her books cheesy with big, overly-dramatic explosions, her characters awkward and endearingly real,* and watching her movies in authentic turn-of-the-century theaters. When not exposing her nerdy self to the world, she's creating her own friends and putting them in horrible, yet sometimes humorous sit
