Shanghai Steam

Recommended Steampunk Reading!

Tackling the issues of classism,
racism, and imperialism.

"Shanghai Steam is one of those anthologies you think will be one thing, but is surprisingly more…" — Bram Stoker Award-winner, Michael Knost.

"Just when we thought steampunk had run out of, well, steam, these daring editors have reinvigorated the whole genre." — Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author.


"Asian literature has a rich tradition of what we would consider speculative poetry, from the Kojiki creation myths of Japan to the variations of the Ramayana epic found throughout Southeast Asia" — Bryan Thao Worra


Imagine

A world with armies of terra-cotta warriors operated by steam power, Chinese Dragon Airships, Tesla-Oolong Tea, robot acupuncturists, weapons carved into dragon’s mouths, artificial limbs imbued with Chi, and schools of martial artists dedicated to cybernetic combat. Imagine a steampunk version of Shanghai or Hong Kong or an alternate history where Britain not only won the Opium War but conquered China, or vice versa. Imagine a completely new Chinese-inspired fantasy world with steampunk elements.


Shanghai Steam

From ancient China to a future Mars, from the British Empire to the Old West, 19 authors show you worlds with alcohol fuelled 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).

Shanghai Steam includes works 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.
