#SEAsteampunk @ Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews!

Chris Meadows of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews got to our anthology, and gave us a 4 out of 5 stars on NetGalley even! It's hard to pick out singular nice things he said about us, but his concluding paragraph is really nice:

Is this a collection worth reading? If you’re looking for something different, absolutely. It promises, and delivers, a series of compelling imaginative journeys, often showing off new directions, and conceptual spaces I, for one, was unfamiliar with – and delighted to be introduced to. On that basis – yes, this one is worth a read!
Thanks, Chris!

Our first review!

AllOurWorlds has a review of The SEA Is Ours, the first of hopefully more!

An excerpt:
These stories fit an enormous amount of character and creativity into a small space, never relying on awkward exposition or “explaining” either the culture or the plot points. They characters exist without having to justify themselves to the audience. And the diversity goes beyond race and culture; there are some queer characters, some disabled characters. Most focus on women, women as inventors, leaders, explorers, and on women of different backgrounds working together- a nicely feminist tilt that’s becoming more prominent in steampunk.

Huzzah, thank you!
