A toy shop owner builds a set of magic clockwork dolls that delight a factory town. A three-inch tall samurai faces a giant iron ogre with only a sewing needle and a coin. A scientist seeks an antidote to his formula gone wrong, with the help of his partner’s beautiful daughter.

All of these stories and more are included in Steampunk Fairy Tales. Written by authors from three different continents–David T. Allen, Leslie Anderson, Ashley Capes, Angela Castillo, Chris Champe, Allison Latzko, Daniel Lind, and Heather White— every enchanting tale combines the futuristic Victorian concept of steam and fashion with memorable stories, from the recognizable Jack and the Beanstalk, to other popular and unfamiliar works from Germany, France, Italy and Japan.

With steam driven gadgets such as mechanical goggles, hover-boards, and an orchestra of automatons. Steampunk Fairy Tales is a charming and unique collection of works for current lovers of the genre, and those just diving in.
