Immerse yourself in the wonderfully imaginative stories collected from around the world in Cogs, Crowns, and Carriages: A Steampunk Anthology, edited by Phoebe Darqueling and Crysta K. Coburn. Stylistically established as Steampunk with the inclusion of such items as unusual gadgets and machines, mechanical body parts, and fabulous steam-powered vehicles, these twelve stories are also grounded in a variety of genres, making the collection both diverse and enjoyable to read.

Here are stories that not only delve into such realms as science fiction, fantasy, mystery and murder, psychological suspense, and adventure, but often do so while questioning what it means to be human and how ethics and morality can be challenged to suit a person’s needs. Offering alternative histories, and sometimes cheekily subtle references to pop culture, these stories are not only entertaining, but often defy stereotypes with characters that challenge attitudes towards marginalized groups.

For readers who are already familiar with the world of Steampunk and for those who are just starting to explore it, these stories are highly recommended. Also recommended is a separate collection compiled by the same editors: Gears, Ghouls, and Gauges: A Steampunk Anthology.

This is the first Steampunk book I've read. I've really enjoyed the short stories in it, particularly Michael Chandos's Gho-Power.

A companion series to Gears, Ghouls, and Gauges, this was an entertaining read. Oddly, this collection didn't catch my fancy the way the first one did but I did enjoy every story I read. I do feel that many of the stories in this collection had a sadder tone than the first, but it was a good sadness... if that makes any sense.

I can totally seem myself rereading this collection when I need a steampunk fix.

Disclaimer: I received a digital ARC with no expectation to review.

Highly recommended to fans of steampunk and anthologies.
