's review

liked it

I really enjoyed these stories; I haven't read a lot of steampunk but I find it a fascinating genre, so a collection like this is a great way to discover more. I particularly liked Cheryl Morgan's Something in the Water, with its echoes of William Hope Hodgson's watery monsters from the deep, and I'd like to read more Amelia Edwards stories. Also very enjoyable was the Woosteresque Brassworth by Christine Morgan. But there are a lot of good stories in here and each one has something to offer.

Disclosure: I know Cheryl Morgan - we've done events in Bristol and I've been interviewed by her on Radio Ujima. Nevertheless, the views I've expressed here are my genuine opinion. I don't know any of the other writers in the anthology.

Joanna I must say that this is one of my favourite books. I probably wouldn't have put one of the longest pieces at the beginning but it was a very good read.
