Reading Challenges: Support Your Local Library; Steampunk; A to Z: Author V

A good collection of steampunk stories from the later days of the 20th century.  A lot of authors that I recognize, but none that I’ve actually read.  I don’t have a huge amount to say about this anthology.  It was enjoyable.  It was fun.  It gave me a nice history of the Steampunk genre. It was nice to read something a bit more modern after Steampunk Prime.  I have the second volume from the same editors, but have decided to read some others first.  A good introduction to the genre.  My favorite story: “Lord Kelvin’s Machine” by James Blaylock.  A good combination of intrigue, exploration, and machines.  I definite must read!
