Cogs, Corsets and Snowflakes
Wishing you Steampunk’s Greetings and a Happy New Gear!Join New York Times, USA Today, bestselling and award-winning speculative fiction authors as they celebrate the holidays this December in steampunk style.
Tinsel and trains, tinkers and time-machines, garlands and gaslamps grace the stories in this limited-time anthology. Corseted ladies and cloaked lords fill your holidays with Christmas cheer—and a touch of Yuletide magic, too—in this collection full of tales of wonder set in alternate landscapes of Victorian style and steam-powered technology.
So deck the skies with dirigibles, gather ’round the clockwork tree, and settle in with your eggnog and goggles for a steampunk celebration like never before!
My story in Bustles and bells is Kiss my Snowflake, the sequel to Kiss my Corset (but they both work as standalones).
DX-4 is a hybrid: not quite human, not quite machine. She was made to be a servant, but serving’s not in her nature – which is why she’s now married to her three masters and looking forward to their honeymoon. For the first time since she was created, she gets to leave the city and travel to the countryside for Christmas.
Not everyone thinks hybrids should be with humans though… will this Christmas be a time of peace or war?
