Book Review: Ghosts of Engines Past by Sean McMullen

May 13th, 2014

Episode 75 of 217 episodes

When I was offered the opportunity to review Ghosts of Engines Past, a short-story collection by Sean McMullen, the initial e-mail said it was a steampunk anthology. I suppose this is broadly true, in much the same way that an anthology about veterinarians might be 80 percent dog stories. In this case, the 80 percent is stories of flight. And if there's one thing McMullen knows how to do, it's make people fly.
