Shanghai Steam

From ancient China to a future Mars, from the British Empire to the Old West, 19 authors show you worlds with alcohol fuelled dragons, philosophical automatons, and Qi-powered machines both wondrous and strange in tales of vengeance, paper lantern revolutions and flying monks.

Shanghai Steam is a unique mashup of steampunk and the Chinese literary genre known as Wuxia (loosely translated as martial hero).

Praise:

"Shanghai Steam is one of those anthologies you think will be one thing, but is surprisingly more…and I mean that in a good way. If you are expecting this to be a collection of simple oriental steampunk stories, then prepare yourself to be Shanghaied." — Bram Stoker Award-winner, Michael Knost.

"Just when we thought steampunk had run out of, well, steam, these daring editors have reinvigorated the whole genre. A terrific collections of weird and wonderful tales." — Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of TRIGGERS
