Steampunk Revolution – Announcing the TOC

Ann VanderMeer • April 4th, 2012 @ 8:29 pm • News

I am pleased and very excited to announce the final TOC for my new upcoming anthology – Steampunk Revolution. This book is forthcoming from Tachyon Publications later this year. This anthology is the next logical step, the evolution of this thought-provoking and still wildly popular genre. We’re rebooting the steam-driven past in order to start the revolution now.

—Ann VanderMeer
