Steampunk III : Steampunk Revolution
by Ann VanderMeer




Overview -
Playfully mashing up the romantic elegance of the Victorian era with whimsically modernized technology, the wildly popular steampunk genre is here to stay. Now...long live the revolution

Steampunk Revolution features a renegade collective of writers and artists, including steampunk legends and hot, new talents rebooting the steam-driven past and powering it into the future. Lev Grossman's ?Sir Ranulph Wykeham-Rackham, GBE, a.k.a. Roboticus the All-Knowing" is the Six-Million-Dollar Steampunk Man, possessing appendages and workings recycled from metal parts, yet also fully human, resilient, and determined. Bruce Sterling's ?White Fungus" introduces steampunk's younger cousin, salvage-punk, speculating on how cities will be built in the future using preexisting materials. Cat Valente's ?Mother Is a Machine" explores the merging of man and machine and a whole new form of parenting. In Jeff VanderMeer's anti-steampunk story ?Fixing Hanover," a creator must turn his back on his creation because it is so utterly destructive. And Cherie Priest presents ?The Clockroach," a new and very unsettling mode of transportation.

Going far beyond corsets and goggles, Steampunk Revolution is not just your granddad's zeppelin?it's an even wilder ride.
