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).

"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
