Valente, Genevieve Valentine and more. Kirkus Reviews The Mammoth Book of Steampunk, edited by Sean Wallace, includes five original stories (and a large selection of good recent work). All the originals are worthy of attention. Locus World Fantasy Award-winning editor Wallace has compiled an outstanding anthology of thirty stories (including four originals) sure to satisfy even the most jaded steampunk fans and engage newcomers and skeptics. Each story exemplifies steampunk s knack for critiquing both the past and the present, in a superb anthology that demands rereading. Publishers Weekly, starred review What I liked best about the majority of these short stories was that they re true to steampunk; no real unusual deviations for those of you looking for goggles and corsets . . .
