    1. Canadian authored short stories featuring inclusion of a variety of nationalities along with creative and imaginative steampunk fiction. Unique.#CanadianBookChallenge10 - canadian located + authored


    2. I'm going to update this review as I read through each story in Clockwork Canada, a (so far!) outstanding steampunk anthology from Exile Editions. Exile publishes themed anthologies with a Canadian focus - I own their zombie and apocalyptic anthos as well, and will review that later this year. I was sent Clockwork Canada for review, and I'm so glad it was. I really enjoyed Editor Dominik Parisien's introduction: it's short, sweet, and doesn't make any grandiose claims for steampunk, as many stea [...]


    3. I'm greatly enjoying this collection of short stories which have Canadian and steampunk elements! Very readable, and it's wonderful to be introduced to some interesting and new (to me) writers.


    4. A fantastic collection of steampunk stories, each wildly different from the next. I always enjoy finding a steampunk story set anywhere other than London, so to discover an anthology of tales set in various Canadian locations was a true breath of fresh air. There are some absolute gems in here - 'The Seven O'Clock Man' by Kate Heartfield, 'The Harpoonist' by Brent Nichols, 'Crew 255' by Claire Humphrey, and 'East Wind in Carrall Street' by Holly Schofield were among my favorites. Absolutely reco [...]


    5. I really liked the first half of these short stories. The second half of the stories were more social commentary with the steampunk factor seeming to be only a second thought which is not what I expected in a collection like this.


    6. Steampunk has often struck me as a genre that has tended toward overly rosey views of the Edwardian and Victorian Eras. The steampunk tales I have read have often uncritically represented colonialism as adventure, portrayed technology divorced from the horrible conditions of the factories, ignored massive wealth disparity and troubling social conditions. It is a genre that is ripe with neo-futurist possibilities to invite critical engagements with ideas of historicity and presentness, but often [...]


    7. Anthologies are always hit-and-miss, but this one has way more hits than misses. Great collection of stories!
