Praise for the author:

The Mammoth Book of Steampunk, edited by Sean Wallace, focuses on newer elements of steampunk and proudly includes work by Mary Robinette Kowal, Jay Lake, Cat Rambo, Ekaterina Sedia, Catherynne M. 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 . . . Wired

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 *
a great volume to feed your steampunk addiction or introduce you to a wide variety of authors and styles -- Gareth D. Jones * SFCrowsnest *
