Steampunk III: Steampunk Revolution Coming 12/1/2012

This third volume of the acclaimed Steampunk anthology series features an international cast of authors and a revolutionary take on the wonders of Steam.  As steampunk continues to gain in popularity, these new tales and fresh tropes from established steampunk storytellers and new exciting talents reconcile Victorian pleasantries with passionate ideologies, reinvigorating the genre.  Mad scientists, lethal assassins, and corseted adventuresses are joined by rebels from Haiti, literary squid, Karl Marx, and Bram Stoker.  Rollicking adventures occur in the rugged frontiers of the West, the teeming cities of the Far East, the treacherous mountains of Iceland, and futures both dystopian and wondrous.

Join a daring English Adventuress on her quest to smuggle a stolen alien artifact past the German blockade, evading barbarian cultists and unspoken sexual tension with her rugged airship captain. Uncover the mystery of a dead and silent world as an aging politician finds peaceful retirement interrupted by a well-armed woman looking for answers.  Travel with a lethal assassin of the Far East as she hunts an eccentric airship captain who is far more than he appears.

With something for everyone, Steampunk Revolution is the must-read anthology for steampunk enthusiasts as well as those new to the wonders of neo-Victoriana.
