Briefly; there are 30 short stories running to 485 pages; for authors and titles see the "look inside" option on the product page.
This is a slightly thinner volume than the "Mammoth" anthologies I`ve previously perused, but it's not a bad little collection; all the usual clichés are present and correct; alternative historical worlds, goggles, airships, strong female characters - and a few lesbians (not complaining, mind) - automatons and scientists all featured in various combinations and permutations.
There are no real stand-outs here; there are a couple of stories that are a little tenuous for the Steampunk category, about three stories I found dull and uninspired, but largely I found it to be an enjoyable collection, quite a reasonable introduction to the genre if you haven`t already discovered it.
Not great literature, but entertaining, amusing, often well-researched or just plain daft; that description could of course apply to any science fiction collection, but this is the Steampunk variety. Worth a shot at its current price.

If you are into Steampunk, you should like this collection, I'm about half way through and like to dip in to it as the mood takes me.
Some of the story's are a good read some are not so good and can be a bit strange.

Big book! I do not read fiction very often but love 'Steampunk' so thought i would give this a try. I enjoyed a few storys but it didn't hold me enough to pick the book back up after putting it down.

The 3 star rating was not because it was bad but just not my cup of tea i found out.

I must have misunderstood steampunk in the few very good novels I've read because I thought I knew what it was.

But this collection of stories has set me straight. Its about airships and lesbians. Lots and lots of airships and lesbians.

The stories, some of which are very well written, blur into one humungous bore fest by the end the the book.

Hours of my life I'll never get back.

I am not a steampunk fan and bought this because it was cheap. What a bargain! There was only one story I really disliked and one other I found boring. But the rest did keep me reading and noting the authors names for future purchase.
