Short story anthologies are tough This one is a strong three stars Even though there were no lost causes as I read I never thought I d give it four Some stories soared but I guess not high nough or

consider it freakish for number of reasonsFull reviewSome Fortunate Future Day was a short story under 5000 words that was featured in the Steampunk compliation by Kelly Link and Gavin Grant I ve read a few of Clare s short stories and found some of them worth the brief reads but while there were some interesting ideas with this particular story it wasn t my cuppa I think part of that might ve been the rather brash and absorbed character of Rose who lives among a group of automatons while waiting for her father to return hom Steampunk An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories is a new young adult collection Taking Instruction (Taboo, edited by veteran anthologists Kelly Link and Gavin J Grant Featuring twelve conventional short stories and two graphicntries Steampunk showcases a wide variety of ideas and styles that fall under the steampunk umbrella The collection is Language and Linguistics entertaining and is lentxtra freshness by the variety of settings Divertimento explored by the authors none of the stories are set in Victorian LondonThe book begins with Some Fortunate Future Day by Cassandra Clare This is a creepy little story about a rather warped young girl who desires love but knows very little about it Thending will leave you wondering How many times Set in an alternate Wild West on another planet Libba Bray s The Last Ride of the Glory Girls follows a girl who goes undercover with a gang of female outlaws and finds her loyalties shifting toward them and away from the Pinkertons she works for The narrative voice is terrific I kept imagining the story being told by Hailee Steinfeld and the religious cult that haunts her past is chilling Clockwork Fagin by Cory Doctorow is set in an oppressive orphanage for children maimed in factory accidents Their keeper meets his untimely Love Is a Fairy Tale end and the kids see a chance to seize their own destinies The story is macabre a bit twisted and darkly funny andnds in a surprisingly uplifting wayThe first of the two graphic Promise at Dawn entries is Shawn Cheng s Seven Days Beset by Demons I don t think I uite got this one I had trouble liking the protagonist and while Injoyed other stories in the anthology that revolved around unsympathetic characters this one didn t give me much to sink my teeth into xcept the motional state of the protagonist His reactions just seemed way overboard in regards to how briefly he d known his love interest but I ll grant that this may have been an intentional decision related to the story s Seven Deadly Sins themeYsabeau S Wilce offers a tale of Bangkok Wakes to Rain early forensics and mad science in Hand in Glove A detective struggles against her fellow officers reluctance tombrace newfangled methods of crime solving as she investigates a mysterious murder spree An The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery enjoyable story The Ghost of Cwmlech Manor by Delia Sherman is a charmingntry a Gothic ghost story with a

Imagine an alternate universe where romance and technology reign Where tinkerers and dreamers craft and recraft a world of automatons ornate clockworks calculating machines and other marvels that never were Where scientists and schoolgirls fair folk and Romans intergalactic bandits Utopian revolutionaries and intrepid orphans decked out in corsets clockwerk suits and tall black boots solve dast. ,

Ry by Cassandra Clare But I guess there was no way to avoid that as Clare is currently considered to be the shining beacon of YA steampunk and thus assigned as the main attraction in this bookThe subtitle of the collection is An Anthology if Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories and indeed it s not a lie this book is full of imaginative and original stories My vision of what steampunk is is pretty pedestrian and looks something like thisFor the most part the authors cater to such vision and a few ven manage to bend it to their purposes and create some darn good stories Although there are some who think that using words like Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? engineer or gadget once or twice in a story is sufficient to make it steampunk I disagree but what do I knowNow to the stories themselvesMy most favorite in the collection without contest Dylan Horrocks s Steam Girl It s a sweet story about a developing friendship and maybe between a lonely boy and a new girl in school who calls herself Steam Girl and tells strange tales about her inventions and various steampunky interplanetary adventures Are her stories real or imaginaryThe other shorts that caught my attentionLibba Bray s The Last Ride of the Glory Girls about a gang of girls who rob trains using a clockwork that stops time This story is so good I wouldn t mind reading a whole book about the Glory Girls and their adventuresIn Clockwork Fagin by Cory Doctorow limbless and mutilated children injured by steam powered machines who live in an orphanage get rid of theirvil master and substitute him with an automatonNext two stories are both ghostly and with the most feminist flare The main character in Ysabeau S Wilce s Hand in Glove Constable Aurelia Etreyo seeks both respect from her male colleagues and justice for an innocent man accused of multiple murders The narrator of Delia Sherman s The Ghost of Cwmlech Manor a servant girl who dreams of becoming an Den of Shadows (Gamblers Den engineer helps her master to find hidden treasure with some help from the resident ghostCalling Elizabeth Knox s Gethsemane steampunk would be a stretch But this story about 4 strange people caught in a natural disaster is so curiously and intricately written that I am willing to forgive the deficiencies in steampunk department I loved how life stories of the characters intertwined and transformed rolling into one anotherThe collection also has two successful post apocalyptic pieces In Garth Nix s Peace in Our Time and Christopher Rowe s Nowhere Fast steampunk future is respectively a cause and theffect of the downfall of the civilizationThe two graphic stories Shawn Cheng s Seven Days Beset by Demons and Kathleen Jennings s Finishing School presented in Steampunk An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories while provide some diversion from prose are pretty negligibleMy least favorite stories in the descending order of my Scraps Of The Untainted Sky enjoyment are Kelly Link s The Summer People has absolutely nothing to do with steampunk It s a tale about a girl s uest to rid herself of the fae folk she is bound to serve The Oracle Engine by MT Anderson is set in a AU Ancient Rome and involves a future predicting machine used for revengeBoth Cassandra Clare s Some Fortunate Future Day and Holly Black s Everything Amiable and Obliging have good ideas the first one is about time reversing and the second automaton loving but are too unpolished unappealing in terms of writing and character development It might be a matter of personal taste though I have never liked anything written byither of these authorsAll in all my xperience with this collection has been very pleasant Even the weakest short stories in this anthology are very readable I recommend I love the idea of steampunk I love the fashion it has inspired and the subculture around it and I want to love the fiction I haven t read a whole lot of it yet for various reasons and what I have read hasn t always worked for me This anthology though put together by Kelly Link and Gavin Grant coming out from Candlewick Press makes me very happy indeed It might be the fact that it is aimed at the YA market that helps it hit the Mark So Well It so well It the notion of steampunk and does some seriously mad things with it There are outrageous characters unexpected settings and some wonderful wonderful narratives With very little fog and few bowler hats There are a number of outstanding stories I read Libba Bray s Going Bovine a while back and fell in love with it so seeing her name in this ToC was like following the scent of chocolate The Last Ride of the Glory Girls is indeed simply glorious Girl outlaws clockwork friendship religion love and a tantalising world it s all here Adelaide i Overall a uality collection There s at least five stories I really really liked and none I d call anything worse than mediocre My favourites are starred Some Fortunate Days by Cassandra Clare In retrospect it s probably a good thing this was the first story of the collection It s not terrible but the next couple stories hit it out of the park and there s no way this wouldn t have felt like a disappointment if I d read it after Libba Bray or Cory Doctorow s story I also think she took the least interesting route she possibly could have with the nding view spoilerI thought the reveal would be that Rose was also an automaton just advanced than the rest Her *coldness and determination that verything should follow the path she d planned for seemed like it could *and determination that verything should follow the path she d planned for seemed like it could that way Plus after reading the Libba Bray I am deeply unimpressed with this use of a time manipulation device hide spoiler I ve been struggling to understand what steampunk means A month ago I d have mentioned such words as Victorian invention pipes and weird before giving up and muttering steam and punk This anthology has its share of all these things but as I read through these stories many of them good a few of them great I realized that steampunk is than its accoutrements It s an almost spiritual belief that technology can achieve miracles wonders and perhaps Fashion Design Course even transcendence This is illustrated in what I consider to be the best of these stories Steam Girl in which the highly imaginative tales that one lonely child tells another prove to be the awakening and salvation that both of them needNot all wonders are bright though Another standout story The Oracle Enginexplores an alternate Rome during the period of the first Triumvirate in which a wronged child seeks his revenge through the use of his invention the ponymous Oracle Engine There are many other good stories and that renders the not so great ones both forgettable and inconseuentialI was ten or thereabouts narrates a character in one of the stories and I was mad for wonders I think there is a need for a little bit of that madness in all of us and Steampunk fulfills it admirably. Ettings as diverse as Canada New Zealand Appalachia Wales ancient Rome future Australia and alternate CaliforniaVisionaries Link and Grant have invited all new interpretations xplorations and Alternatives Chapter 2 (The Chronos Files; The Shattered Saga expansions taking a genre already rich strange and inventive in thextreme and challenging contributors to remake it from the ground up The result is an anthology that defies ven as it defines the genre. Steampunk An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange StoriesSouth Pacific but is based at least in part on the 1902 ruption of Mt Pelee in the West Indies island of Martiniue Knox follows four characters Speak Out! each of whom has a story andach of these stories is made up of a complex tangle of truth and lies The lies start to unravel as disaster strikes Gethsemane and the truths discovered are often tragic but the process of learning them is satisfying for the reader The Summer People by Kelly Link is a story of fairies in Appalachia The steampunk connection is a bit tenuous you could remove the steampunk and still have I Like You the Best essentially the same story but it does provide a clever new look at why one shouldn t take certain metals along while visiting the fairies Even though it s really of a fairy story than a steampunk one The Summer People is haunting I think I ll remember its twist and the rooms of the fairies house for a long timeGarth Nix s Peace in Our Time centers on an old man who at first seems doddering and innocent but whose role in a horrific cataclysm unfolds gradually as he is interrogated by a young woman An interesting character studyChristopher Rowe s Nowhere Fast is set in Kentucky in a post apocalyptic future Anti technological beliefs have taken over to the point of becoming repressive Into this setting comes a young man in a device that isn t at allxotic to us but is shocking to the townspeople a car I thought this story was going somewhere darker than it actually went but it s a thought provoking look at how any philosophy can be taken too farThe second graphic The collectors encyclopedia of antique marbles entry is Finishing School by Kathleen Jennings Engaging and well drawn Finishing School tells the story of a famous aviatrix s first flight as seen through theyes of her childhood friend now a dentist I njoyed it and wished there were of it I wanted to see of both women s lives Steam Girl by Dylan Horrocks is set in our own time as a teenage boy falls slowly and awkwardly in love with a geeky outcast girl in his class They bond over the graphic novels the girl writes which relate the adventures of Steam Girl an author avatar whose life is filled with planet hopping high adventure Meanwhile they face bullying at school and it also becomes vident that the Steam Girl yarns are closely tied to their creator s troubled real life than one might xpect Steam Girl is an absolutely beautiful story in which any high school pariah current or former will see a little bit of him or herself ETA And I want to tell Shanaia that It Gets Better for geeks too Get thee to a SF con girl You ll be beating off suitors with a stickNext is Holly Black s Everything Amiable and Obliging This story is set in an alternate Regency England where automata are mployed as domestics and in other subservient positions The narrator s cousin falls in love with an automaton and the narrator tries to scuttle the romance by proving the automaton is incapable of love Like Nowhere Fast this is a story I thought was going to go darker than it did Black paints a disturbing scenario regarding the sentience or not and the free will or not of the robots but ties it up in a way that seems fluffier than is warranted by the themesClosing out the anthology is MT Anderson s The Oracle Engine Anderson places his ntry in an ancient Rome that never was It s much like the real historical Rome but these Romans have advanced technology They have flying machines and it s implied that they nuked Carthage The Oracle Engine draws on the real life history of the consul Crassus and uses that as the foundation *for a terrific story of revenge If know your Greco Roman mythology it s not hard to guess where *a terrific story revenge If you know your Greco Roman mythology it s not hard to guess where story is going but Anderson makes the journey irresistible Also includes a great joke that s ostensibly about an order of male Vestals dedicated to THE ORACLE ENGINE BUT IS REALLY A LITTLE POKE oracle ngine but is really a little poke present day computer geeks Steampunk An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories is a solid anthology well worth picking up by any young adult or not so young adult reader interested in the steampunk genre Especially satisfying were the complex characters who populate these tales and the diverse range of settings My personal favorites were the More Punishment For His Cheating Wife entries by Link Horrocks and Anderson but I thoroughlynjoyed the whole collection and have discovered some new authors to try Overall a solid compilation A couple of stories weren t steampunkish Decision enough Link s andor compelling Knox s Even Garth Nix sntry was just a short shaggy dog story as it were though the punch line did make you think But there were far The View from Alameda Island excellent tales than not Clare Bray Doctorow Rowe and Black kept true to the theme and turned outnjoyable and imaginative stories The Oracle Engine with its basis in Roman history was interesting for a while but it soon became obvious what was going to happen Though if you haven t read anything about the Greek oracles and how their predictions were misinterpreted most famously the wooden wall of Athens then the resolution might be a surprise Hand in Glove Wilce s detective story was a blast to read I longed for it to be a novel or a series of stories la Sherlock Holmes Sherman s ghost story was somewhat predictable yet captivating nonetheless But my favorite by far was Dylan Horrock s Steam Girl with its two likable When Fox Is a Thousand eually interesting characters and a plot that keeps younthralled and as off balance as the narrator It s a superb work and one that could have been the title story in the collection ie Steam Girl and Other Steampunk StoriesThe best thing about Steampunk is that the 100 Innovations of the Industrial Revolution editors made good on their promise toxplore and Taken The Anthology expand what steampunk means giving us a set of stories that avoids repetition of setting plot or character Here s hoping they do Steampunk II 282142857143 25 I don t normally go for Steampunk and it may have come out in the ratings The authors I read this for greatly let me down Thentire anthology let me down a fair bit and it saddened me and also took me way to long to read It was just generally tiring Some Fortunate Future Day Cassandra Clare This was relatively creepy Like this girl is living in her house alone with just clockwork creatures to keep her company and this boy fighting in a war lands in her garden so she concocts this idea in her head that they will fall in love and get married So there s insta love And we don t Rose s age which is creepy And there s time travel I just didn t like this TW talk of alcoholism previous loss of loved one death of pet death war themes The Last Ride of the Glory Girls Libba Bray A girl goes underc I haven t Schematic Design enjoyed a YA anthology this much since Zombies Vs Unicorns Picking authors who can write and have a lot of interest in the genre as opposed to those who are popular really paid off here The onlyxception to this assumption is the opening short sto. Ardly crimes The Second Sister escape from monstrous predicaments consult oracles and hover over volcanoes in steam powered airshipsHere in the first major steampunk anthology for young adults fourteen masters of speculative fiction including two graphic storytellersmbrace the genre’s Perfect Match (Girl Talk, established blend of sci fi and fantasy action and adventure history and romance and refashion it in surprising ways and in
