Well, it took longer than expected, but two of us here at Diascribe have stories that have now seen the light of day. RuneWright finally released the steampunk anthology Penny Dread Tales in print, Kindle and iPad formats. Quincy Allen has a story in it called Lasater’s Lucky Left about a cyborg gun-slinger in the 1860s that tangles horns with Chinese gangsters in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Terry got in a story called Sacred Ground that’s part steampunk and part paranormal horror. It’s your basic “1870’s rich-kid finds shape-shifting natives in Quebec and fends off robot attack.”
The anthology is all steampunk, and at 400 pages (18 stories) devoted to every flavor of the sub-genre you can think of, it’s definitely worth the price of admission. Every flavor except a mad scientist… truth be told nobody submitted a mad scientist story to the editor. That’s kind of strange, now that I’m thinking about it. Anyway, if you’d like to see some of either Quincy’s or Terry’s work, pick up a copy (print or electronic) of Penny Dread Tales Volume One.
