reviews

Readers wondering where dieselpunk and steampunk diverge will find examples aplenty in this collection of 21 alternate histories. Tobias S. Buckell introduces dieselpunk as the “grease and noise and ‘We Can Do It' posters” of the interwar period, marrying Machine Age concerns to Art Deco aesthetics. This basic framework supports an excitingly diverse array, with stories spanning the globe and narrated by journalists, factory workers, soldiers, robots, even a dragon...Offering an examination of how technology affects our humanity, this collection is a mix of the entertaining and the thoughtful.
