In spite of the hoopla associated with this anthology, and in spite of some of the big names who wrote stories for it, I found this anthology rather mediocre. Some good stories yes (eg - Joe Lansdale's Steam Man) but others that I couldn't even muddle my way through. And like most groupings of steampunk literature, the definition of steampunk is stretched to the breaking point. I'm not a 'gotta be in the UK' zealot when it comes to steampunk but geez... throwing a corset on a girl does not make a story steampunk.
