Steampunk is the twisted offspring of science fiction and postmodernism, a sassy, unpredictable tongue-in-cheek style of which the incomparable Paul Di Filippo is master. The three short novels in The Steampunk Trilogy are all set in a very alternative nineteenth century, and feature a mixture of historical and imaginary figures. In "Victoria," a young and lissome Queen Victoria disappears from her throne and is replaced by a sexy human/newt clone. The race is on to find the original Victoria and to hide the terrible secret from the nation. In "Hottentots," Massachusetts is threatened by monsters from the deep; in "Walt and Emily," Emily Dickinson hooks up with a robust and lusty Walt Whitman, loses her virginity, and travels to a dimension beyond time where she meets the future Allen Ginsberg.

1.0 The Steampunk Trilogy
I had some difficulties with this book. And that’s because two out of three stories bored me slowly to death. But let us start with the good one, the first one: Victoria The soon-to-be-Queen disappears and while the search for her goes on a look alike takes her place. Luckily for the court, a s...

3.0 The Steampunk Trilogy
Not as good as "Life as We Knew It" or "The Dead and the Gone", but this book involves a comet that changes the atmosphere of the Earth. The solution send 251 kids to another planet to colonize. First in what appears to be a trilogy. Plot is somewhat predictable looking at it as an adult, but a c...
