Penny Dread Tales Volume Two truly is a phantasmagorical calliope of clockwork and steam, one that will spirit you away to the four corners of the globe . Steampunk is not just British and it’s not just American, although you may have heard different. Steampunk is everywhere and forever. This anthology celebrates the notion that steampunk also has a home in places like China, Budapest, Panama and beyond. In this collection of short steampunk stories, a prince will face the curse of his ancestors, airship privateers will face down a murderer in the rugged Outback of Australia, the cities of Buda and Pest will face annihilation, and a lone, clockwork cowboy will face down the meanest werewolf in the west.
So sit back, relax and step into the Victorian age that never happened, even in your wildest dreams!
