Inventors, pilots, tinkers, and soldiers; magical metals to replace an aging heart or a ruined limb; steam-powered fantasy worlds of clockwork nightingales, automatons, dirigibles, and men. The stories in this anthology visit diverse times in the history of modern man, and the men who populate these tales face war and cruelty, masters and autocrats, illness and poverty and greed. Yet the heat of romance outmatches even the steam engines, and time and again, the gears of love rule the day. (Goodreads Synopsis)


 

Steamed Up is an enjoyable collection of Steampunk-inspired tales. Some appealed to me more than others, as is usually the case in an anthology, but there was plenty here to cater to every taste. My personal favourites included: The Clockwork Nightingale's Song by Amy Rae Durreson, Swiftsilver by Bell Ellis, and Ace of Hearts by Mary Pletsch.
