Steampunk III: Steampunk Revolution

Playfully mashing-up the romantic elegance of the Victorian era with whimsically modernized technology, the wildly-popular steampunk genre is here to stay. Now…long live the revolution! This entertaining and edgy new anthology is the third installment in the bestselling Steampunk series that includes Steampunk and Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded. Steampunk Revolution features a renegade collective of writers and artists including steampunk legends and hot, new talents rebooting the steam-driven past and powering it into the future. Lev Grossman’s “Sir Ranulph Wykeham-Rackham, GBE, a.k.a. Roboticus the All-Knowing” is the Six-Million-Dollar Steampunk Man, possessing appendages and workings recycled from metal parts, yet also fully human, resilient, and determined. Bruce Sterling’s “White Fungus” introduces steampunk’s younger cousin, salvage-punk, speculating on how cities will be built in the future using pre-existing materials. Cat Valente’s “Mother is a Machine” explores the merging of man and machine and a whole new form of parenting. In Jeff VanderMeer’s anti-steampunk story “Fixing Hanover,” a creator must turn his back on his creation because it is so utterly destructive. And Cherie Priest presents “The Clockroach” a new, unsettling mode of transportation. Going far beyond corsets and goggles, Steampunk Revolution is not just your granddad’s zeppelin-it’s an even wilder ride..
