Steampunk September

Well September has come and gone and along with it my month long dip into to the realms of steampunk fiction.  It was interesting ride with some fantastic fiction featuring various flavors of steampunk; proving once again that even even amongst its sub-genres speculative fiction can be an amazingly diverse field.  Now that we are just about a week into October I’ll be starting on some horror fiction and should have my first review, for The World More Full of Weeping, up tomorrow sometime.  Be warned that this month’s titles are, by and large, going to be small(er) press titles that may be difficult to acquire or, in some cases, outright impossible outside of used vendors (I’m looking at you Zen in the Art of Slaying Vampires).  I also plan on watching the Phantasm series in its entirety.  I seriously enjoyed the off-the-wall crazyness of the original film and think it’s about time I experienced the sequels.  Anyhoo,  here is a quick list of my September reviews:

Keeping It Real by Justina Robson

Whiteout by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber

Whitchapel Gods by S. M. Peters

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Soulless by Gail Carriger

Boneshaker by Cherie Priest

Of course if you didn’t get enough steampunk from me you might want to head over to Tor.com who are currently in the midst of their own little steampunk event.  For those keeping track, I’ll be taking on epic fantasy for November and I’ll be returning to the stars for some space opera in December; I’ll be returning to my more eclectic and scattered selections come the new year.
