Description

Welcome to an alternate Canada, where steam technology and the wonders and horrors of the mechanical age have reshaped the past into something both wholly familiar yet compellingly different. These fifteen supercharged all-new tales reimagine Canadian historical events, explore other Canadas, and gather inspiration from the northern landscape to make us wonder: what if history had gone a different way? Experience steam-powered buffalo women roaming the plains; visit brutal gas-lit working class streets; join extraordinary men and women striking out on their own or striving to build communities; marvel as giant rampaging spirits are thwarted by miniscule timepieces, at a great clock that when it chimes the Seven O'Clock Man appears to terrorize a small village in Quebec, or when a Maritime scientist develops a deadly new weapon that could change the course of the American civil war.

Review quote

"This is Canadian fiction like you've never seen it before: a buzzing, crackling, supercharged assemblage of thrills and derring-do, secret histories, incredible machines and fantastical creatures. Prepare yourself for a wild ride through a landscape that's somehow recognizable and utterly, gloriously strange." -- Helen Marshall, Shirley Jackson Award-winning author of Gifts For The One Who Comes After "Steampunk with a Canadian accent - in Clockwork Canada Dominik Parisien has given us a wonderful new way to look at not just Steampunk but also some of the best new Canadian fiction being written. Full of adventure, surprise, unusual inventions and, of course, steam, this anthology will make you remember why you fell in love with Steampunk in the first place." -- Ann VanderMeer, Hugo, World Fantasy, and British Fantasy award winning editor
