Clockwork Fairy Tales: A Collection of Steampunk Fairy Tales | [Stephen L. Antczak, James C. Bassett]

Clockwork Fairy Tales: A Collection of Steampunk Fairy Tales

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Red Shoes", New York Times best-selling author K. W. Jeter's "La Valse" forges a fable about love, the decadence of technology, and a gala dance that becomes the obsession of a young engineer - and the doom of those who partake in it. In "You Will Attend Until Beauty Awakens", national best-selling author and John W. Campbell Award winner Jay Lake tells the story of Sleeping Beauty - and how the princess was conceived in deception, raised in danger, and rescued by a prince who may be less than valiant.

Publisher's Summary

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Red Shoes", New York Times best-selling author K. W. Jeter's "La Valse" forges a fable about love, the decadence of technology, and a gala dance that becomes the obsession of a young engineer - and the doom of those who partake in it. In "You Will Attend Until Beauty Awakens", national best-selling author and John W. Campbell Award winner Jay Lake tells the story of Sleeping Beauty - and how the princess was conceived in deception, raised in danger, and rescued by a prince who may be less than valiant. The tale of "The Tinderbox" takes a turn into the surreal when a damaged young soldier comes into possession of an intricate, treacherous treasure and is drawn into a mission of mercy in national best-selling author Kat Richardson's "The Hollow Hounds". In "The Kings of Mount Golden", Hugo and World Fantasy Award nominee Paul Di Filippo tells the story of a young man's search for his heritage and a mechanical marvel that lies at the heart of a sinister pact in this fascinating take on "The King of the Golden Mountain".

    "Magical"

    This is a selection of some of the greatest fairy tales of the world, with steampunk elements added in for good measure. It never feels intrusive toward the spirit of the story, and in fact sometimes adds a much needed boost to its atmospheric buildup.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a fun listen. If you like Victorian age technology with cogs and animatrons, you'll love this book.
