Release date: November, 2012
From ancient China to a future Mars, from the British Empire to the Old West, 19 authors show you worlds with alcoholfuelled dragons, philosophical automatons, and Qi-powered machines both wondrous and strange in tales of vengeance, paper lantern revolutions and flying monks.
Shanghai Steam is a unique mashup of steampunk and the Chinese literary genre known as Wuxia (loosely translated as martial hero).
Stories by: Camille Alexa, Shen Braun, Amanda Clark, Ray Dean, Tim Ford, Laurel Anne Hill, Minsoo Kang, William H. Keith, Crystal Koo, Frank Larnerd, Emily Mah, Derwin Mak, Brent Nichols, Frances Pauli, Jennifer Rahn, Tim Reynolds, Julia A. Rosenthal, Nick Tramdack, K. H. Vaughan.
Very excited. Yep, that's the description of my current state of mind. I can finally announce that Shanghai Steam - an anthology of Steampunk/Wuxia stories is going to be published... and NOT just the anthology... but my story as well...
If you read the summary above, they've included a little nod to my plot, but I'm not telling you which one... you'll just have to read it for yourselves.
