Gainesville Times

You’ll be astonished by what you’ll find in The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities. Editors Ann and Jeff Vandermeer have gathered together a spectacular array of exhibits, oddities, images, and stories by some of the most renowned and bestselling writers and artists in speculative and graphic fiction, including Ted Chiang, Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy), China Miéville, and Michael Moorcock. A spectacularly illustrated anthology of Victorian steampunk devices and the stories behind them, The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities is a boldly original, enthrallingly imaginative, and endlessly entertaining entry into a hidden world of weird science and unnatural nature that will appeal equally to fantasy lovers and graphic novel aficionados.

“Well written with plenty of meticulous line drawings, photos, excerpts from letters and manuscripts and more, this engaging read is sure to pique the interest of young and old alike.” (MonstersandCritics.com)

“The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities was a reminder of why I love books, of invention and imagination, humour and fascination, all rolled up into a collection that I will return to often.” (SF Site)

“A book likely to become a classic at the intersection of fantasy, horror, steampunk and magical realism....Every fantasy lover, and all you postmodernists out there, need to take a tour of the Cabinet.” (PopMatters.com)
