Steampunk is an anthology of stories by many different authors. Some stories were unremarkable, some were really interesting and there were two that I just couldn't finish. I'm not sure why. This was the first time I had tried the steampunk genre and it was quite strange but pleasing--although it does require certain tastes.
My favorite story was "Hand in Glove" by Ysabeau S. Wilce. It was an intriguing murder mystery that involved misconceptions, a talking chimp, and much more. It's hard to write about an anthology, how about you read it?
