    1. An interesting blend of the Cthulhu Mythos with the darker side of steampunk. Among the standout stories for me was Carrie Cuin's "No Hand To Turn the Key" which told about a group of automata fighting to preserve humanity's knowledge. Adam Bolivar's "The Blackwold Horror" had a nice steampunk take on human augmentation with clockworks. Lee Clark Zumpe's "Before the Least of these Stars" was another example of his deft storytelling. Christine Morgan's "Unfathomable" was probably the most fun sto [...]


    2. I'm giving this 4 stars because the writing's good and the theme is fun. However, I found too many of the stories to be repetitive. Some only had a thin veneer of "Steampunk" on them and could just have easily been set in the classic Pulp era, or the modern era.


    3. Some stories were riveting, others were simply boring But overall it was just nothing spectacular or very Cthullian about them


    4. One of the best Lovecraftian anthologies I've encountered. Several stories had me hunting for more by their authors, and there's a lot of originality to be found here.The only let down for me was the final story, which seems to have been missing an editor (especially as the author is usually pretty good). Ah well - still an excellent book.


    5. As usual with these sort of collections, the quality varies. Some good ideas in here, but also a lot of verbosity. A couple of good stories, a couple of stinkers, and the rest are OK. Not bad but not great either.


    6. Some absolutely wonderful stories, and some fairly average ones. A mixed bag, but still worth checking out if you love Lovecraftian fiction.


    7. Like all compilations, some stories are better than others. However, in this volume, there are no weak stories - the editors have done a fine job of selecting their entries.Steampunk and the Cthulhu Mythos have been partnered before, and they do work well together. Some of these stories are primarily Mythos stories, with a bit of steampunk for flavour, and some are primarily steampunk, with a little bit of Mythos. Most achieve a more equal mix of both. Although all written by different authors, [...]


    8. I think this is a must-read for any fan of the Mythos. I think it's a must-read for any fan of steampunk, when so little of it is well written. One of the best aspects of it is the juxtaposition between the determined nihilism of Lovecraftian horror and the futuristic positivism of steampunk; in this collection, sometimes one wins out over the other. In one story, suggestive of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the doomed protagonists of Lovecraft's work get a second chance in another reali [...]


    9. As with all compendiums, some is superb, some is good, and there are the inevitable one or two stinkers.But when this is good? It's very very good. Some of these short stories will live in on my memory for a long while. Just, maybe a few of them I'd have cut out of the book entirely.


    10. What a disappointing anthology. I can only venture that the meshing of steampunk with the Mythos meant that a very particular writer contributed stories because many of them were in need of severe editing. One or two were passable but overall a complete waste.
