25 tales of anarchic mayhem exploring the history of the future
Sean Wallace has been publishing fantasy fiction since 1997. In 2005, he launched Fantasy Magazine for which he won a World Fantasy Award. He has been nominated for numerous other World Fantasy Awards and, in 2009, a Hugo Award.
Wallace's smart, provocative collection proves that "steampunk is alive and well" by reaching out to the edges of its mash-up sensibilities, with 25 pieces that use the aesthetic elements of clockwork, steam, and magic to tell a diverse range of human stories... This is an expansive display of creative world-building by thoughtful storytellers, boldly ranging well beyond its quasi-historical contexts. Publishers Weekly
