This was a very entertaining and informing anthology. I have to agree that the editors' contributions gave the book its highest value, especially the afterword about Steampunk in movies and tv and comics, which was unexpected. I didn't love all the selections, but they did show the diversity of Steampunk, and they were all refreshingly different from writing I would have chosen to read on my own. Weird, sometimes too dystopian or explicit or even repulsive, but I enjoyed them for what they were. Which is the point of an anthology, after all. For myself, I liked the story about the Selenian Gardening Society best.
