The Summer Steampunk Bundle - Curated by Anthea Sharp

Have you had the marvelous pleasure of reading Steampunk yet? Whether you're a long time fan or new to the genre, this is your chance! Melding alternate 19th century history, steam-powered or clockwork technology, elements of mystery, the paranormal, romance, science fiction, and fantasy, authors have a wonderful variety of elements to play with. As a result, some of the most innovative and immersive world building can be found within the Steampunk genre, and this StoryBundle is no exception.

I'm delighted to include in this collection some of the top names in Steampunk fiction, like award winners Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris, and Bec McMaster. USA Today bestsellers Jeannie Lin, Christine Pope, and SM Blooding write in a variety of genres, but bring their storytelling skills to the genre. And rounding out the bundle, you'll find indie favorites A.W. Exley, Sara C. Roethle, and Joseph Lewis, for a cornucopia of Steampunk stories exploring several sub-niches of the genre.

In addition to alchemists, automatons, and airship aviators, you'll find the Chinese Ministry of Science, a sacrificial mermaid beset by pirates, the queen ruling from a gear-filled city in the clouds, a gothic castle in Romania, and Victorians in space.

Packed with USA Today bestsellers and award-winning authors, the Steampunk StoryBundle also features three exclusives! That's fully one third of this collection that can be found nowhere else. So what are you waiting for? Grab this bundle today!– Anthea Sharp
