Product Description

Review

Layla Schaeffer, Duxbury Free Library YALSA Teen Reader As soon as you open the book, you are swept into these places that are so different, yet have parallels in the real world...it seems that all of these places could replace their counterparts in the real world... There were only 13 stories. I need more! Rated: Hard to imagine a better book.

Book Description

A stunning anthology of the very best of steampunk that’s taking teen fiction by storm.

I am a big fan of Anthologies, a great way to read short stories by authors you love and to find new authors to try. This was a mixed bag for me. Stories from some of my favourite authors and ones I have yet to try. My reactions vary as some authors I like, I wasn't as keen on their submissions. It was a good selection of original stories that haven't appeared elsewhere and as far as I know are not part of series already created by the author so can be considered stand alone, which is always a Bonus.

Rude Mechanicals - This one was alright, wish there had been a bit more steampunk for me.

The Cannibal Fiend of Rotherhithe - I didn't feel that this one fitted this anthology, it wasn't really steampunk as such.

Wild Magie - The first story I really liked in this anthology and would happily be immersed in more of this tale.

Deadwood - I liked this one, too. The story was good, would happily read more about this tale.

Code of Blood - Meh...

The Clockwork Corset - Predictable, a bit of a let down.

The Airship Gemini - where others really loved this story, I did not get into it at all.

Under Amber Skies - What wasn't to like in this story, I loved the inventions and would happily read more of this tale.

King of the Greenlight City - This was an interesting story, part of me didn't like the way it ended, but would be interested in reading more of this story to see where it goes. A tempting teaser, I must say!

The Emperor's Man - Now I found this a little predictable but quite fun. Bookish girl's always appeal to me. Paranormal and Steam Punk. Fun.

Chickie Hill's Badass Ride - Meh.. not sure it fitted in either, apart from the tweaked car.

The Vast Machinery of Dreams - Didn't get into this one.

Tick Tick Boom - This could be close to my favourite. Loved the secrecy and plotting.

Overall a good anthology.

Format: Paperback
Corsets & Clockwork brings together thirteen romance-charged Steampunk stories in a dynamic anthology. They make a great introduction to the genre for beginners while still offering something for the more die-hard enthusiast.

The cover design is a successful blend of the two main elements of the anthology: Steampunk and Romance. The soft-focus used on the model's face sets the romantic mood as your eye is guided up to her more in-focus eye - whose gaze captures you. The light flare on her pupil is the point where the two halves of the cover start to merge - if you look closely you will see what looks like metal pipes and steam. You are then drawn across to the cogs, gears, maps and mechanical drawings. It is a lovely cover and captures the essence of Corsets & Clockwork.

I enjoy Steampunk - the merge of technology with magic and human endeavour is a fertile land for the imagination. And collected in the pages of this anthology are thirteen examples of the genre, albeit with a romantic twist. I really enjoyed the fact that the Romance didn't elbow the Steampunk out of the way - the two genres seem to have linked arms and leapt feet first into the fun.

As with any anthology there were some stories that I enjoyed more than others. My rating for the book is based on my overall experience of all of the stories, but I just wanted to highlight three that really stood out for me.

Deadwood by Michael Scott was a lot of fun to read, with a feisty and determined heroine and a hero who could keep up with her. Unlike most Steampunk stories, Deadwood is set in the US, but the time period is right and the feel of the story was spot-on.

The Airship Gemini by Jaclyn Dolamore was definitely one of my favourite stories in Corsets & Clockwork.

Good introduction to Steampunk 5 Nov. 2012
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
While this is a good collection to introduce people to the world(s) of Steampunk, I didn't think this was a particularly "romantic" collection. The authors included represented the wide-ranging and ever-evolving definitions of steampunk, and the stories were all fun little snippets.

Corsets and Clockwork 23 Oct. 2012
By Wmb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I found many of the stories to be beautifully written for short stories. Many I would have liked to have been a little longer so that certain details could have been talked about more. 

I recommend this book to those who love the steampunk genre and are looking for some quick reads.

short bites - some very tasty! 13 May 2012
By Jean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A variety of writing styles, good way to discover talented writers! My favorites were about a Mermaid you've never heard described like this before and a completely different style where magic effects are the thing. Steam Punk entrances !

An Interesting Collection 19 July 2013
By LMN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
showcasing a number of different authors in this genre. I found it very handy for identifying authors who's other works I'd like to read. Since each story takes place in a world unique to each author's imagination I've had a fine time taking a short walk through all those different worlds.
