Googles, Gears and Gremlins edited by Jonathan BairdA SteamGoth Anthology (Volume 3)            

This is the third book in the SteamGoth anthology series. This book takes you to a darker more magical Victorian era. Here is a world driven by sorcery and steam.  So what is SteamGoth?  That is a good question. The short answer is that it is a darker version of Steampunk. However that isn’t the final answer to this question. SteamGoth encompasses more than a darkness not found in regular Steampunk. SteamGoth embraces the magical and paranormal side as well. Where SteamPunk is the science fiction version of the Victorian period, SteamGoth is the fantasy version. SteamGoth can be about vampires, zombies, werewolves, or just as easily about steam powered knights in shining Victorian armor. SteamGoth is dark but often it has that ethereal hint of neo-medievalism that was so very popular in the Victorian age.  In this book you will find monsters, magical beings, steam powered cats and much more. Come take a trip back in time and across to a parallel universe to see the world as it might have been. The stories in this book are strung together by a common narrative centering on the character of a female gremlin named Merrimaus. She guides you through each of these tales and the book culminates in a story in which she is one of the main characters.
