Dreams of Steam II: Cover and Contents!
It looks like Kerlak is about to unleash its next steampunk anthology, Brass and Bolts, into the wild. Apparently the original Dreams of Steam was so successful that this one's coming out in hardback, trade paper, and ebook formats, available for ordering soon!
Once again, the host of this party is the esteemed Kimberly Richardson. My own contribution is a semi-sequel to last year's "Dead Man's Hand." That piece was essentially a haunted house story (with robots), but "Jumping the Rails" is more of a straight out adventure in the turn-of-the-century West.
Here's hoping that this collection is even more fun than the last one!
