I try to get to know all the different sides to Science Fiction. I thought that Steampunk would be something I would be interested in. Out of the four Steampunk Novels I read before this Anthology, I only really liked one. I liked Scott Westerfield's Leviathan. An anthology is a good place to find authors I am interested in and I found five stories that I really liked, so now I have five authors to check out. Those authors are Cassandra Clare, Cory Doctorow, Ysabeau S. Wilce, Kelly Link and Dylan Horrocks. The last author wrote Steam Girl, which was a great story. Kelly Link's Summer People was very different and very good.
WINE TASTE LIKE CELLAR DUST
Like all anthologies there are some stories that just don't measure up and I found about five of these. As a whole this only gets three stars, but if I find an author to follow that will be worth a galaxy of stars.
Having the different narrators helps also. Most of them were really good, although there was one girl who must have gone to the Scott Brick school for over acting.

Any additional comments?
It amuses me that Audible offers questions for a reviewer to answer that either aren't relevant to the book or to my experience of it. Anyway... You won't find any stories in this anthology to be particularly groundbreaking, but you will find some fun here. It's a great distraction for those who already love the Steampunk genre, and a decent first read for those looking to get their feet dirty.
