Description (from goodreads)

Dark, urban fantasies come to life in the newest collection of Steampunk stories, Corsets & Clockwork. Young heroes and heroines battle evils with the help of supernatural or super-technological powers, each individual story perfectly balancing historical and fantastical elements. Throw in epic romances that transcend time, and this trendy, engrossing anthology is sure to become another hit for the fast-growing Steampunk genre!

This collection features some of the hottest writers in the teen genre, including: Ann Aguirre, Jaclyn Dolamore, Tessa Gratton, Frewin Jones, Caitlin Kittredge, Adrienne Kress, Lesley Livingston, Dru Pagliassotti, Dia Reeves, Michael Scott, Maria V. Snyder, Tiffany Trent, and Kiersten White.


This is a collection of 13 steampunk short stories. Most of the stories do not end happily, and I think thats why i liked it so much. Not everythign can be sunshine and candy and im glad the authors embraced this. Some of my favorite stories were: Wild Magic by Ann Aguirre, Tick Tick, Boom by Kiersten White and Under Amber Skies by Maria V. Snyder. If you like steampunk, disturbing tales but also some happy ones thrown in, youll enjoy Corsets and Clockwork.

    I have not had the pleasure as of yet to get my hands on this one. However, the idea of less then ideal endings really appeals to me. Thanks for reviewing.
