This was a mixed bag of stories. Reading several was VERY frustrating because they were part of a serial, and so "ended" rather abruptly. I did have a heads-up on this, but not on which stories, and only one actually stated that it was to be continued in another volume.

Definitely different takes on steampunk here - in some stories it was much more subtle; in others, the steampunk elements were clearly the focus of the story.

Interesting, overall!
