Litmag Reloaded!

Steampunk Reloaded just got reviewed in The Cascadia Subduction Zone, which is a fantastic literary quarterly you can purchase here.

Some choice bits:

The stories and essays led me through a maze of anti-colonial politics to meet alien space-time terrorists, robot gunslingers, moody artistic cyborg strippers, buried spaceships called to life by fairies, mysterious paper-and-typewriter bloggers and sockpuppets, and a couple of intrepid squid. Paired with Steampunk, this anthology is great for understanding shifts in the zeitgeist of speculative fiction today.

...For Steampunk Reloaded the aesthetic is of a baroquely fucked up revolution gone wrong, and of resistance by people, aliens, cyborgs, robots, magical beings, and cthuloid horrors to the machinery of power. It should make pulp fans, political thinkers, retro-technophiles, and history wonks very happy.
