    DescriptionBlending the romantic elegance of the Victorian era with modern scientific advances, the popular Steampunk genre spotlighted in this collection is innovative and stimulates the imagination. This artfully assembled anthology of original fiction, non-fiction, and art can serve as an introduction to the Steampunk culture or provide dedicated fans with more fuel. Stories of outlandishly imaginative technologies, clockwork contraptions, eccentric heroines, and mad scientists are complemented by canon-defining non-fiction and an array of original illustrations. This collection showcases the most sensational Steampunk talents of the last decade, including Daniel Abraham, John Coulthart, William Gibson, and Margo Lanagan, and demonstrates exactly why the future of the past is so excitingly new.

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