Waiting on Wednesday: Steampunk! by various authors

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Steampunk! by Kelly Link (editor)
Published by: Candlewick Press
Release date: October 11, 2011

Imagine an alternate universe where romance and technology reign. Where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Where scientists and schoolgirls, fair folk and Romans, intergalactic bandits, utopian revolutionaries, and intrepid orphans solve crimes, escape from monstrous predicaments, consult oracles, and hover over volcanoes in steam-powered airships. Here, fourteen masters of speculative fiction, including two graphic storytellers, embrace the genre’s established themes and refashion them in surprising ways and settings as diverse as Appalachia, ancient Rome, future Australia, and alternate California. Visionaries Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant have invited all-new explorations and expansions, taking a genre already rich, strange, and inventive in the extreme and challenging contributors to remake it from the ground up. The result is an anthology that defies its genre even as it defines it.

Why I want to read it: Big names like Elizabeth Knox, Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, and Holly Black are sure to make this book one of a kind.  I enjoy steampunk and can't wait to read it!  Isn't the cover kind of crazy-weird?
