Fall Books Have Hit the Shelves

Three new Tachyon books, Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded, The Search for Philip K. Dick, and Flaming Zeppelins are now out in the world and ready to read! Excited? Well, you should be. But in case you're not, here's the New York Journal of Books review of Steampunk Reloaded to get you started:

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.

Each story offers up a new and distinct world to explore—as they should be in a good anthology—and these are amazing, weird, and wonderful worlds. Better yet, they show the wide range of styles and applications that comprise Steampunk, from William Gibson’s modern-day “The Gernsback Continuum,” and Samantha Henderson’s beautiful fairytale-meets-now-meets-steam “Wild Copper,” all the way to Marc Laidlaw’s highly Victorian “Great Breakthroughs in Darkness” that’s almost a Lovecraftian take on the genre, and the Sherlock Holmes-ian “Balfour and Meriweather in the Adventure of the Emperor’s Vengeance."

When will Steampunk Reloaded have a kindle edition? Only the print edition is available from Amazon.com.

Hi Al. Unfortunately there will not be a Kindle edition for this book. I wish we could have done one, but securing the rights to all of the pieces proved impossible. I hope you find a dead tree version that you can enjoy almost as much.

Cheers,

Jill
