Publisher's Summary

Cheerful in the face of dark opposition. Innovative to improve a backward world. Industrial as a cure for oppressive conditions. Unyielding beneath all who seek to bind and control them. Faithful until they conquer the fear of death and rise to great acts of heroism and service. Mormons and steampunks are two faces of the same coin.
 

Twelve authors spin tales of true believers facing impossible odds, risking this life in the hope of gaining something better after. Mormon Battalion soldiers fight an airship, a bounty hunter crosses Porter Rockwell, cultists attempt to reanimate Brigham Young, and missionaries run into Cthulhu. These are just a few of the amazing tales by award winning, bestselling, and premier authors - D. J. Butler, John M. Olsen, Steven L. Peck, Elizabeth Mueller, Scott E. Tarbet, Jay Barnson, Joe Monson, Amanda Hamblin, Christopher McAfee, Jace Killan, John D. Payne, and Lee Allred.
 

All Made of Hinges is the first installment in the incredible three-part Mormon steampunk series by Immortal Works Press. If you love these stories, look for more in Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel and Press Forward, Saints.

A steampunk what now?

If you are like me, then you are still hung up on the sub title. A steampunk Mormon anthology? What on Earth is a steampunk Mormon? Well it turns out that answering that question is easier than expected. These are steampunk stories where at least one character is a Mormon. And like all anthologies, it's a sampler of different styles, tones, voices and plots. Most are light hearted with a humorous tone, but one or two are a little intense. The real surprise were the ones that were philosophical without talking about religion at all. Not what I expected from a Mormon anthology. These stories are all alternative history, so expect historical persons to make cameos and for some historical events to not have happened the way you thought. Some stories are just westerns with airships and others are Clockwork dystopias with zombie hoards. The steampunk elements were all really well done, and in most stories the Mormon element was barely noticeable. So I wouldn't let that hold you back from trying this anthology out. In fact if you're still holding back because of religion, don't. The characters that have the most faith are machines. And the only story that has angels is theologically incorrect. (If you ever meet angels that contradict each other, one of them is not an angel.) Narrator Benjamin Fife, is one that I've heard a lot from. He always brings a unique voice to every book he reads. No where is that most evident than in this anthology, where you can hear his reading style change for each story. Fife is also really good at accents, and these stories give him a wide range of accents to play with. His French and Japanese accents are new ones I got to hear. If you like steampunk everything then this anthology is sure to delight.

Pretty Good Anthology

These 12 stories are mostly pretty good you have everything from Brigham Young to Cthulhu, a few of my personal favorites were Mere Pulp No Less, Marching On To Glory, The Pipes Of Columbia and the last story Tracting out Cthulhu, A couple of the stories were a bit repetitive, but really not much of a problem for me, I would recommend this anthology audiobook to anyone who likes the steampunk genre, and even if you don't or have never read steampunk, give it a try, you just might be pleasantly surprised. I received this audiobook from the author and S.O for free in exchange for my review, so here it is....Thank's

Great rollicking fun!

A wonderful variety of stories. Brisk action. Clean language. Chaste romance. Porter Rockwell and other historical figures. The next three anthologies are on my shopping list.

Great Steampunk Collection

This exceeded all my expectations. Like all anthologies, some of the stories are better than others. But unlike other anthologies, I can't point to any story in the collection and say, "I didn't much like that one." All of these are gems, and well-polished ones at that. Four and a half stars.

Just not my thing...

So, I am familiar with the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints... I was curious and have had people recommend that I try steampunk so I did.... I think it just comes down to it not being my genre. I found them to be strange mixtures and a bit creepy, weird and missing deeper development that you don't get in the short stories. The narrator did a good job but wasn't able to get me over the oddness of the content. It was too jarring for me personally to mix the secular steampunk and the religious lore of the church. —I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
