about this item
"Chockful of gear-driven automatons, looming dirigibles, and wildly implausible time machines . . . should please steampunks of all ages."— Publishers Weekly (starred review)Imagine an alternate universe where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Visionaries Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant have taken a genre already rich, strange, and inventive and challenged fourteen masters of speculative fiction, including two graphic storytellers, to embrace its established themes and refashion them in surprising ways and settings. The result is an anthology that defies its genre even as it defines it.
In the first major YA steampunk anthology, 14 top storytellers push the genre's mix of sci-fi, fantasy, history and adventure in fascinating new directions. Authors include M. T. Anderson, Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Cory Doctorow, Garth Nix and many others.
