1.0 Cabinet of Curiosities ★☆☆☆☆
I wanted to like this steampunky-themed book of short-stories, but it tried too hard at cleverness and told essentially uninteresting stories. The text does not deliver on what the fascinating illustrations promise. I gave it 78 pages, 18 beyond my minimum 50, and gave it up.

5/6 - This book is wacky. And I mean WACKY with a capital W!! It's like a 'choose your own adventure' books crossed with a non-fiction full of footnotes.

This was interesting. I liked how it's work of fiction, but read like it was based on fact. I got this mainly for the Carrie Vaughn and Cherie Priest stories and (in my biased opinion) they were also the best.

3.0 The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities: Exhibits, Oddities, Images, and Stories from Top Authors and Artists
How do you describe a book so strange and unique it defies genre? The Cabinet of Curiosities is like no other book. Probably closest to steampunk, that doesn't even begin to describe it. The illegitimate child of Monty Python and Umberto Eco. Full of contributions from dozens of artists and auth...
