Not all steampunk, but readable,

This review is from: The Steampunk Megapack: 26 Modern and Classic Steampunk Stories (Kindle Edition)
Many of the stories in here are not steampunk by any definition I'm familiar with, even if retroactively applied. Steampunk is essentially a postmodern sf sub-genre that is the contemporary of cyberpunk. Maybe you can stretch it to include the original works that steampunk often celebrates or parodies, such as Wells, Verne, even Mary Shelley - but Lovecraft? Friel? Wouldn't have thought so.
Still, this megapack is an eclectic mix of sometimes very readable fantasy, horror, adventure, and some actual steampunk. Not at all bad, would recommend it at the price.
