Steampunk Prime: A Vintage Steampunk Reader

Steampunk Prime: A Vintage Steampunk Reader - Mike Ashley, Paul Di Filippo One of the best anthologies I've read ever. Most of the stories are outstanding, all are fascinating for their worldview and views of science and the future. If you love Verne and Wells, this is especially a don't miss. Rich period detail, some interesting scientific conjecture, and good writing. The stories are everything from action adventure to mystery. Thoroughly enjoyable. I'll post a more detailed review soon.
