really liked it

(Rated as more of a 3.7 to 3.8 stars)
This Steampunk inspired anthology held many unique and interesting views of creative worlds and inventions. Many of them centered around steam power, clockwork, and even a little magic. Why even one held a certain rivalry of steam versus diesel power. Many of the tales were solid stand-alones that fit well (each easily 4 stars or more). Still, a few stories were a bit shaky as to their development details (concerning the inventions' workings). These few also may have had rather odd or abrupt endings that left me either perplexed or slightly jaded (that is of course my personal bias). Perhaps just in those cases, the story could have been pushed to a longer format to tie up these odds and ends (some actually would make for better novels). Overall, it's a great example of the ingenuity by living beings to either perfect or destroy their fantasy worlds.
