One thought on “Hot and Steamy: Tales of Steampunk Romance

  1. Marcus

    After the bad experience with Carnal Machines I was a bit weary of another collection with possibly erotic content Then I thought I should not let one such experience detract me After all, a sample size of one is not really statistically valid and so I got myself a copy of Hot and Steamy Tales of Steampunk Romance, and looking back now, it was the right decision There was a good omen right at the beginning The first tale, Chance Corrigan and the Queen of Hearts, is by none other than Michael A S [...]

  2. Eclectic Reader

    Combine short stories with steampunk and you have two of my favorite pastimes Add a dash of romance and even this cynical 40 something is along for the ride Editors Jean Rabe and Martin H Greenberg have assembled a satisfying tome worthy of any enthusiast of steampunk or romance As with any anthology, there are winners and some not so winners, but none that I would call losers That alone says a lot for this book Because Hot Steamy touts itself as both steampunky and romancy I ve given each story [...]

  3. Sara

    I love steampunk, and I admire a really well done romance Sadly, of the 16 stories in this anthology, I felt that only three of them were really worth reading Clockworks, by Jody Lynn Nye, Love Comes to Abyssal City, by Tobias Buckell, and Dashed Hopes, by Donald Bingle And even these stories could have used some tightening the steampunk elements were all there, but characterization and interaction needed some work Some of the stories were completely unreadable, either because of sloppy storytel [...]

  4. Amanda

    This anthology did not live up to its promising premise Only a couple of the stories were really engaging and I think this was for two reasons First, I didn t really find any of the relationships depicted in the collection believable Perhaps that is the fault of the format since a short story doesn t provide a lot of time to establish romantic relationships between characters Regardless, a believable romantic relationship is necessary for a romance anthology to work Second, the fault could be th [...]

  5. Dorothy (D. J.) Emry

    I picked this one up because I wanted to see what steampunk romance was all about and I got it for a good price during the Borders closing sale It gave me enough to make me want to read steampunk, but damned if I can call up any clear memory of the stories I read.

  6. Stephanie Davis

    I liked it There were definitely some well thought out stories that would have made for great books, but in a collection, not all are equal If you like steampunk and don t mind romance, you ll probably enjoy this Very easy to pick up and put down as needed Even better Not every story was filled with automatons and goggles.

  7. Charles

    Stuff I Read Hot and Steamy ReviewFor a while now I ve been looking for some good steampunk stories to get into, because I like the idea and the look and am interested in seeing some actual written works so I can gauge whether or not I would ever really want to write it That than anything else is the reason that I read some genres So while looking through the bookstore I came across this collection, which is a bunch of steampunk stories all with a romantic twist Now romance isn t exactly my thi [...]

  8. Timothy Tobolski

    I regularly express my love for anthologies there s no better way to sample either a smattering of stories based upon a theme you may not be familiar with or enjoy a variety of authors you ve never read before And I confess that I ve taken a recent shine to the sci fi sub genre of Steampunk, that melding of Victorian values with technology inspired by Wells and Verne and powered by steam.However, romance is hardly my chosen topic of fiction So I naturally avoided this book for a few weeks, only [...]

  9. Cornelia

    This anthology of short tales of adventure and romance includes an Egyptian Steampunk story, Absinthe Minded Archaeologist by Vicki Johnson Steger A lovable archaeologist, who made an amazing find, keeps running into a lovely woman But she turns out to be an assassin gunning for him In Love Comes To Abyssal City by Tobias S Buckell, a women defies convention and the law by following her heart and running away with a travelling man In For The Love Of Byron by Mickey Zucker, a man and a woman, bot [...]

  10. Dharia Scarab

    This book is misnamed in my opinion Hot Steamy makes it sound like a bodice ripper, but the stories were definitely PG Plus some of these stories weren t romances at all In others the romance felt dropped in at the end just to get in this collection.That being said most of the stories themselves were good A few felt too short, like a chapter cut from a longer book.Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This [...]

  11. Josh Welch

    I reviewed this book before it was publsihed, here is my review Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer JWel1111Hot and Steamy is a book full of little stories, all of steampunk romance All of the stories take place in the Victorian era All of the stories are love stories Of course, what else did you expect But, there is than just love in these stories, there are intrigue, danger, pyrotechnics, and plenty of gadgets The stories have varying settings and plots My personal opinion, on this book is not p [...]

  12. Carena Wood beimler

    This was really not that impressive I like at least 50% of the stories to be interesting, and there was really only one Also, it was neither Hot nor Steamy nor was it really romance based It was random connection based Only two stories seemed like they could be actual romance, and one of them was the one good story Also, it was romance in the time of tragedy Another story that seemed like Romance was Romeo Juliet style romance, that is to say, mis communication ending in death, but throw the vei [...]

  13. Clarissa

    This book is several short stories that are unrelated put into one book I was hoping to love it as I have a large interest in the Steampunk world as well as romance I read the first two shorts and was left bored with them they lacked romance and excitement In the first they make several references to a past encounter that the reader has no clue what occurred, the stories are to short to enjoy the characters or even learn enough about them to enjoy it I normally refuse to give up on a book but I [...]

  14. Catherine

    Received as a gift earlier this year This is not a particularly strong collection, particularly if you re looking for romantic short fiction I liked the steampunk elements and the alternate historical elements, which were definitely the highlights of this book for me Most of the stories felt unfinished and rushed, and in several cases, made little or no sense One even changed airship names during the course of a 12 page short story I did enjoy the stories by Jody Lynn Nye, Tobias Buckell and Eli [...]

  15. Sara

    I ll tell you, I m not a romance reader, but steampunk is so interesting that this one sucked me in Plus, short stories short bursts of vomit inducing romance I m not being fair Well, kind of I wasn t super impressed The first story was good, 4 stars, and then we didn t get another good one until almost 100 pages in The ones in the middle of the two were, well, middling I m not inclined to finish it out, not under pressure, anyway Maybe someday when I forget to bring a book to work I ll yank it [...]

  16. Jens Kuhn

    I am rating this book quite low not because the stories in this anthology aren t good, some of them are very good, one even excellent, but because of the label hot and steamy There s some romance but definitely no flying sparks Some of the stories are cute love stories but there s nothing steamy happening so I do think the title and what s suggested in the blurb is not what is delivered Rename it Twisted Steampunk tales and I d rate it better.

  17. Allison

    Wasn t impressed from the very beginning See mid book update.I suspect I m also not a fan of short fiction romance they get together or whatever, and I m like BUT YOU HARDLY KNOW EACH OTHER YOU GUYS IS THIS REALLY WISE It was easier, I think, with the collection of dystopian romance I read since the stressful settings forced the characters together than some of the relaxed zombieless, breathable atmosphere, etc settings in this book.

  18. Moria

    The huge majority of stories here are just terrible Overall these are neither steampunk nor romances In fact they re not well written at all You can t just throw an automaton into one story or an airship into another call it steampunk Only one of the stories I read had an actual well thought out alternate world I only got about 60% finished before I had to stop the stories were that bad Purely a marketing ploy to capitalize on the steampunk trend.

  19. Tim Hicks

    Overall, this is unmemorable but reasonably enjoyable Legitimately steampunk as advertised A good book to go between biggies and cleanse the palate As others have said, some stories are better than others, but that s to be expected in an anthology, and people generally won t agree on which were the good ones anyway.

  20. A.D. Grey

    I enjoy reading short stories, and steampunk has become one of my favorite genres While normally I wouldn t be caught dead reading a romance novel, the stories in this collection weren t over the top, or flowery.Surprisingly, there were a lot of bittersweet endings Not quite what I expected, but was definietly a good thing.

  21. Captain Jacq

    If you re looking for a steamy, romance novel, this isn t it The title is very misleading I found multiple typos, and some of the stories were not very well written The romance in some stories was very underplayed and there are no steamy scenes The steampunk aspects were interesting, but no worth the time It was mildly entertaining, but I struggled to finish it Not recommended.

  22. Diane

    I picked this up from the library bookstore because of the steampunk element I m not a short story fan These stories are heavy on the steampunk, light on the romance, which is fine I m interested in the imaginative devices and worlds Some of these stories are very interesting some have that thrown together feel of many short stories.

  23. Norman Howe

    This anthology consists of sixteen tales of anachronistic technology and throbbing hearts There are labyrinthine plots , monsters from beyond , card sharps , robots , death rays , and time machines Although this is not one of my favorite genres , there are some good stories in here.

  24. Cheryl

    I make no bones about what I m about to read I needed something ahem lighterd besides you can blame my husband He was the one who said I should read it Well, that did not take much thought at all

  25. Kay

    I bought this book hoping that it would lead me to new authors who could combine workable romance with science fiction ish story lines The quality of the individual stories varied widely, and I sadly don t feel the need to rush out and buy something else from any contributor.

  26. Cissa

    This was a really mixed bag about half the stories were at least competently written and the other half were NOT.The good ones were entertaining The others were really, really tedious.Also none of the stories were especially hot in the erotica sense Mostly, everyone was chaste.

  27. Reanne

    Read the first two stories I wasn t really impressed with them And then the book had to go back to the library I don t think I ll take it out again anytime soon.

  28. Sheila Cottrill

    I barely skimmed this book I really love the victorian era BUT so didn t care for this type of book too sci fi , i guess

  29. Bill Blocksom

    I hadn t read short stories in quite a while and this was my first foray into steampunk I found it inventive and playful A fun read.
