    I really didn t know what to expect when I started reading this I ve not read any steampunk in the past, so I had no basis on which to make a statement about whether this was good or bad steampunk It turns out that didn t matter These stories are examples of a brewing change in steampunk, and as such I could read them without thinking about that label It is a very good collection of stories As with any collection, there are a few stories that aren t to my tastes, but that didn t deter me fr I really didn t know what to expect when I started reading this I ve not read any steampunk in the past, so I had no basis on which to make a statement about whether this was good or bad steampunk It turns out that didn t matter These stories are examples of a brewing change in steampunk, and as such I could read them without thinking about that label It is a very good collection of stories As with any collection, there are a few stories that aren t to my tastes, but that didn t deter me from enjoying the book

    consistently better than the second one

    Solid anthology, as per usual from Ann VanderMeer My only complaint is only a teensy one, and perhaps not even really one Most of the works here seem like teasers, in that they d build up steam Ah HA HAHAHAhahahaha and thenboom Story over Technically, that s doing what an anthology is supposed to do, I guess, in introducing me to authors So even though that left me a bit frustrated, I guess it warrants a tip of the hat.Also, if you want to know what s going on with steampunk, reading Solid anthology, as per usual from Ann VanderMeer My only complaint is only a teensy one, and perhaps not even really one Most of the works here seem like teasers, in that they d build up steam Ah HA HAHAHAhahahaha and thenboom Story over Technically, that s doing what an anthology is supposed to do, I guess, in introducing me to authors So even though that left me a bit frustrated, I guess it warrants a tip of the hat.Also, if you want to know what s going on with steampunk, reading all three of these anthologies in order, for reals will give you an excellent feel for the genre The genre that is ALL OVER the place, as this collection, in particular, makes clear

    I keep skipping over my own story in this collection it almost feels like if I read it, it might disappear And, well, I know my story Discovering all the other pieces is great fun

    I m not even sure if the journey was all worth it for me It wasn t until the fourth story that I was really into anything Leg Grossman s Sir Ranulph Wykeham Rackham, GBE gets disfigured in WWI and ends up having 12 masks manufactured for him He even gets a Cubist one made by Picasso, which he thinks looks worse He becomes a celebrity of sorts, but ends up only needing the sad mask Love the Oscar Wilde quote, Man is least himself when he talks in his own person Give him a mask, and he wi I m not even sure if the journey was all worth it for me It wasn t until the fourth story that I was really into anything Leg Grossman s Sir Ranulph Wykeham Rackham, GBE gets disfigured in WWI and ends up having 12 masks manufactured for him He even gets a Cubist one made by Picasso, which he thinks looks worse He becomes a celebrity of sorts, but ends up only needing the sad mask Love the Oscar Wilde quote, Man is least himself when he talks in his own person Give him a mask, and he will tel you the truth This was followed by a similarly themed story The Heart is the Matter, which I enjoyed And then after the odd Mother is a Machine, I was really immersed in Possession by Ben Peek And then Beatrice was weird, and it s like you can t look away while reading that And then after going through a LOTstories, I wasn t really feeling it until I got to The Stoker Memorandum The Stoker Memorandum by Lavie Tidhar actually grabbed my attention since I m a fan of Dracula, Frankenstein, and Jekyll Hyde This was kinda confusing though because, while there are elements of the Dracula setting and a mention of Vlad the Impaler, which are sure to inspire the idea of Dracula, the story goes in this weird direction involving rockets I did enjoy reading it, though After that, Smoke City was good, and then the rest didn t really impress me I guess I enjoyed a bitthan I remembered, but nothan a quarter of the stories presented When I look back at the whole collection, I remember how much I had to go through before getting to something that truly caught my interest Thankfully, this was pretty cheap in the Humble Bundle I got I wouldn t suggest buying the collection at full price

    Finished this witha sense of accomplishment than pleasure The high spot for me was White Fungus, brainy and geeky at once An Exhortation to Young Writers was pretty funny, Addison Howell and the Clockroach was amusing for the names Humptulips, Julia Frimpendump , On Wooden Wings and Lev Grossman s Sir Ranulph Wykeham Rackham worked pretty well but the rest were forgettable.

  7. John Lawson John Lawson says:

    A collection of steampunk short stories Yeah, I m pretty sure this anthology is what convinced me I don t like the genre I m sure all these stories were perfectly good, but the only ones I really enjoyed were the ones that seriously down played the steampunk angle.

  8. Janta Janta says:

    Some interesting stories, a few that were too horror y for my own tastes.

  9. Rebecca Rebecca says:

    Some good ones, but kind losing steam, pun intended.

    Steampuk III Steampunk Revolution is an anthology brimming with glimpses of lives and worlds as diverse as reality While all the stories have substance to them, I will review the ones that spoke to me in some way or other Mother is a Machine by Catherynne M ValenteAs is Valente s style, this short story is vivid, provocative and disturbing It takes a moment for the reader to situate herself in the narrative, find her ground, figure out who is what and what s happening but once that is done Steampuk III Steampunk Revolution is an anthology brimming with glimpses of lives and worlds as diverse as reality While all the stories have substance to them, I will review the ones that spoke to me in some way or other Mother is a Machine by Catherynne M ValenteAs is Valente s style, this short story is vivid, provocative and disturbing It takes a moment for the reader to situate herself in the narrative, find her ground, figure out who is what and what s happening but once that is done, there is a definite thrill this short story for all its briefness, speaks volumes about being human About being inhuman I finished reading and sat for a while just mulling over what I had read and now, days later I can still pull up the details in my mind as fresh as though I had read them yesterday Possession by Ben PeekThis was heartbreaking in a lot of different ways The main character finds a woman, a Returned, as she is called due to her body being integrated with mechanical parts This woman, Rachel, has lived for a long time and seen many things, too many things The short story etches the last few moments of her life when she and Eliana, the main character, find each other, form a friendship of sorts and a connection Beautiful and tragic An Exhortation to Young Writers Advice Tendered by Poor Mojo s Giant Squid David Erik Nelson, Morgan Johnson and Fritz SwansonThis short story waslight hearted and featured a series of texts from a anthropomorphized giant squid who tenders advice to his readers in the midst of his own adventure There is danger galore and threats of being turned into squid soup The story is amusing and fast paced I liked it A Handful of Rice Vandana SinghWe move on to India where there is much discussion of prana, brotherhood and kings At once foreign and familiar, this tale gives a glimpse of a world populated by colour, passion and peace Contradictory and thought provoking The Effluent Engine N K JemisinThis story presents fascinating narratives about colour, race and colonization Haiti with its freed slaves have constructed for themselves a country and they are determined to keep their freedom This story gives us a brief glimpse of the desperate measures people will take where liberty is concerned This was a bit spoiled for me however by the excessive attention to romance I m strange that way To Follow the Waves by Amal El MohtarThis one details the lengths one woman goes to find and perhaps experience another woman she saw for just a short second Her love, if it can be called that, manifests itself in beautiful ways She constructs dreams from precious stones and I found this new mythology definitely intriguing Peace in Our Time Garth NixThis was quite easily my favourite story of the bunch I love Garth Nix s writing and this short story with its lingering imagery and characters will stay with me for a very long time White Fungus by Bruce SterlingA story set in a post apocalyptic world that details how a man tries to reclaim the land and along the way, love a woman who is not very keen on being loved It was interesting though not my favourite.There are also nonfiction articles on steampunk and I found those to be quite illuminating On the whole, this anthology delivers and should keep an avid lover of all things steampunk entertained for a long time I recommend reading one story at a time and not several in one go as these stories, though short, carry a lot of depth that need to be savored and absorbed slowly I recommend this to those who like short stories and love steampunk You won t regret giving this one a try
