“Includes one of my favorites Steampunk shorts of all time…” -Gail Carriger, New York Times Bestselling author of The Parasol Protectorate
The author of The Antithesis Progression and The Clarke Lantham Mysteries brings you delicate, humorous, and brutal visions of a future that never was and a past that might have been. Here you will find collected tales of satire, romance, whimsy, and comic horror to delight every sensibility.
“On Matters Most Austere”
“A Goblet of Fifty-Three”
and “Cold Duty,” the story that Steampunk Scholar Mike Perschon calls “…probably the single best steampunk short story I’ve read.”
Plus a new introduction and six new poems
