Review:

"Chock full of brass, steam, diabolical engines, villains, Victorian aesthetics, romance, and humour . . . An essential primer!" --Steampunk Workshop

"If you want to go deeper into realms where high tech and the old world meet, be sure to pick up the Steampunk anthology." --"San Francisco Examiner"

"This new collection of previously published stories spotlights some of the best short work in the subgenre." --"San Francisco Chronicle"

"It is as if a mad scientist had done all his shopping at Victoriana instead of Sharper Image . . . effectively captures what the steampunk genre is all about." --"Los Angeles Times"

"Steampunk fans will want to add this to their personal collections; libraries owning the first volume should round out their holdings." --"Library Journal"

"Though it may be the brass's flash that first attracts readers, it's the grime and verdigris that makes the stories, and this anthology, so compelling." -- "Time Out Chicago"

"A wonderful addition to any collection--rich and varied enough to continually offer new ideas, new takes on oldies but goodies, and intense excitement and adventure in myriad styles. The book feels fresh, new, and at the same time, like it should have been actually produced at the time it's set in." --"New York Journal of Books"

"The dynamic VanderMeers follow 2008's Steampunk with this engaging anthology of 23 stories . . . which define, deepen, and demonstrate the clockwork beauty of automaton-laden science fiction." " --Publishers Weekly"

"The dynamic VanderMeers follow 2008's "Steampunk" with this engaging anthology of 23 stories (three original to this volume, including Jeffrey Ford's 'Dr. Lash Remembers'), two essays (including one by Gail Carriger), and a roundtable interview, all of which define, deepen, and demonstrate the clockwork beauty of automaton-laden science fiction. Standouts include Tanith Lee's madness-inspired 'The Persecution Machine'; Caitlin R. Kiernan's hauntingly beautiful tale of 'The Steam Dancer (1896)'; Marc Laidlaw's photographic encyclopedia of 'Great Breakthroughs in Darkness'; Sydney Padua's comic 'Lovelace and Babbage: Origins, with Salamander'; the frightening Pinocchio of Cherie Priest's 'Tanglefoot'; William Gibson's proto-steampunk tale 'The Gernsback Continuum'; and 'Flying Fish Prometheus (A Fantasy of the Future)' by Vilhelm Bergsoe, a Danish contemporary of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. Fabulous interior design by John Coulthart completes this worthy sequel to its well-regarded predecessor."
--"Publishers Weekly", starred review

"Steampunk is a genre for thinkers, and this book proves the point. The stories inside are beautiful, often lyrical, frequently disturbing, always exciting, and occasionally even funny, but they're also dense, literary, and trusting of the reader to be smart enough to 'get' it."
--"New York Journal of Books"

"Steampunk fans will want to add this to their personal collections; libraries owning the first volume should round out their holdings."
--"Library Journal"

"The VanderMeers have, once again, captured the essence of the genre.... This book is a must-have collection for fans of steampunk and those who love a dark, rousing tale of what could have been."
--"Tangent"
