Clockwork Fairy Tales
- A Collection of Steampunk Fairy Tales
- By: Stephen L. Antczak, James C. Bassett
- Narrated by: Anne Flosnik, Kaleo Griffith, Robertson Dean, and others
- Length: 11 hrs and 55 mins
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.

Well written and read but I didn't like
I didn't enjoy the stories. They are steam punk but take twists that I didn't like and didn't infuse the steampunk in ways that were entertaining.
