    This was a surprise. I came for the steampunk, but went away with a new appreciation for Shakespeare. The stories are usually witty, well-crafted and fun to read. I even read some of the dialogue aloud as if it was a play. Super cool! Even the poems rocked. Would like to see more.

    (Full disclosure: I've had issues with co-editor and contributor Jaymee Goh's criticisms of "The Windup Girl" by Paolo Bacigalupi, and I submitted a story for this anthology that was rejected, but that hasn't influenced my opinion of the book.) First, the editors could have chosen a title that indicates at a glance that these are steampunk Shakespeare stories. Second, most of these stories don't tell a complete story, being only non-self-contained vignettes from the plays, though most have good ideas that I would like to see more fully developed. Several only add steampunk props to Shakespeare without making any other changes. That said, I thought "A Midsummer Night's Steam" got it exactly right, and three others -- "Much Ado About Steam Presses," "Leo's Mechanical Queen" (based on "The Winter's Tale") and "The Malefaction of Tybalt's Mechanical Armature" (from "Romeo and Juliet") -- came close enough that I greatly enjoyed reading them. I was particularly disappointed by "Measure for Steel-Sprung Measure," which had a great premise, but ended too abruptly. My least favorite story was "The Misfiring Love Piston of Sir John Autumnrod," which tried to move the plot of "Henry IV, Part Two" to the American Civil War, with Lincoln in place of King Henry, Grant in place of Prince Hal and the fictional Autumnrod in place of Falstaff. It's long and labored. I'd probably rate this two-and-a-half stars if that was an option, but since it's not I bumped it to three.
