Join our Mad Scientists, Lethal Assassins, and Intrepid Heroines, Prepare to be Astounded, Confounded, and Carried Away by the rollicking Exploits bound in this marvelous New Volume of our much-commended series. Let the power of Steam take you to the frontiers of the Rugged West, the teeming cities of the Far East, and the treacherous mountains of Scandinavia, whilst making a narrow escape from the Mechanized Jaws of Death...we hope.
However, we must warn you...
This is NOT your Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandmother's Steampunk. Our renegade collective of Scribes and Scribblers have converged from across the Globe, igniting the Tinder of Rebellion, and revealing all Manner of Madness. They tell of a daring English Adventuress smuggling a stolen alien artifact past barbarian cultists and the German blockade; a fearsome Robot General who has finally outlived his heyday on the battlefield; a determined Friedrich Engels attempting to resurrect Karl Marx and liverate the proletariat, and much more.
The Revolution has begun!
