Borderlands Books presents
The Steampunk anthology

What exactly is Steampunk? It's Victorian elegance and modern technology: steam-driven robots, souped-up stagecoaches, and space-faring dirigibles fueled by gaslight, romance, mad scientists, and oh-so-trim waistcoats. It's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Wizard of Oz, and The Golden Compass. Replete with whimsical mechanical wonders and bold adventurers, this riveting anthology lovingly collects classic steampunk stories, pop-culture fueled discussions of steampunk, and essential recommended reading lists for the discerning steampunk fan. From the editors of The New Weird, this is steampunk. Hang on tight.

Vote first (Tachyon officially endorses...Barack Obama. Duh). Feel free to come in costume...
