(Review from the author)
really liked it

A cracking collection of steampunk tales, where buttoned-up Victoriana gets a modern, erotic twist. If your dream men are military captains, light-fingered thieves or absent-minded inventors, you're not going to be disappointed by the heroes on display, while the heroines are feisty yet vulnerable, fighting against the constrictions of the time that seek to place them in narrow, traditionally feminine roles. In Green Cheese, Lisabet Sarai imagines a world where the British and French are fighting for dominance over the moon and a diplomat's daughter finds romance with a businessman's son in an alternative version of Bangkok. Sacchi Green's Fog, Flight and Moonlight has a cross-dressing heroine and a breathtaking dirigible flight in the fog of San Francisco Bay, but the stand-out story is Christine d'Abo's beautiful tale of love, valour and sacrifice, The Undeciphered Heart. If you've never read any steampunk, this is a perfect introduction.
