Steamduck Learns to FLY! by Emilie P. Bush

Steamduck Learns to FLY! by Emilie P. Bush

I hope most of you have seen Her Majesty’s Explorer: a Steampunk bedtime story, Emilie P. Bush’s and William Kevin Petty’s first foray into the untamed wilderness that is Steampunk children’s books. That tale follows St. John Murphy Alexander, a mechanical explorer, but also introduced a much smaller mechanical creature: Steamduck. Today (October 10, 2012)...
Ganymede by Cherie Priest

Ganymede by Cherie Priest

Two years ago, Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker brought a new vitality to steampunk and kicked off her Clockwork Century series. Ganymede, the latest installment, come out today and is definitely worth adding to your library.

The Manual of Detection by Jedediah Berry

The Manual of Detection by Jedediah Berry

Perhaps the biggest mystery in The Manual of Detection is what kind of book is it. Is it steampunk? Michael Moorcock certainly thinks so in his review for the Guardian (see below). Other reviews treat it as a noir detective story, a surrealist art piece, or fantasy. The New Yorker called it an allegory. Yet...
The Native Star by M. K. Hobson

The Native Star by M. K. Hobson

Another visit to the weird west. In The Native Star, M. K. Hobson gives us a fantasy steampunk old west with everyday magic and biomechanical devices competing for our attention. The story centers on a witch and a warlock as half-rivals, half-allies on a cross-country quest to determine the nature of a magic artifact and...
