Shanghai Steam, one of the coolest anthologies you'll see this year, is now available - sort of. Amazon's got it in paperback, but the ebook version doesn't seem to be on the digital shelves yet.
I can't wait for my copy, and not just because I have a story in it. This is one of the most intriguing and fun anthology ideas I've ever come across, a blend of steampunk and wuxia, a Chinese literary genre that can best be described as "Martial Arts Heroics." Steam-Fu, in other words.
Nineteen authors bring you stories set in China, Britain, Canada, the old West, even Mars. There are dragons, automatons, flying monks, and a coffee maker of terrifying power. There are heroes and assassins, grim tales of vengeance, and light-hearted tales of comedy.
I'll keep you posted about e-book availability. In the meantime, here's a link to the paperback version at Amazon:
