Mere hours away from our release date, today we are pleased and honored to present a short section from the introduction to our anthologie 20,001: A Steampunk Odyssey, written by noted Steampunk author Ren Cummins.
"This anthology reflects, I believe, one of the true fascinations I feel towards Steampunk in general – that it is a flavor which goes so well with so many others; far more than just a simple exercise on technological awareness or cultural examination, but a framework and design which can function as a template for so many broader concepts, spanning the thematic spectrum. Are you a fan of high adventure? There’s a place for you here. Do you prefer a bit of Lovecraft in your literary tea? If so, you may be duly pleased as well. Or if your tastes run simply to the random; enjoying a good quality yarn where there are such to be savored, then I expect this tome will be to your pleasure."
