Bravo to Circlet Press for helping to usher in steampunk erotica for us readers eager for the new and unknown. Readers, you're in for a treat with a lot of variety to satisfy many different tastes."-Obsidian Bookshelf Steampunk, as a genre, has always sported its share of corsets and leather, yet only a few publications have pushed into the erotic steampunk realm. In the 2000s, Circlet Press published a trio of anthologies with erotic steampunk themes and in this volume all three are brought together in one glorious collection. Lust & leaping 'technologie' meet in a Victorian era that never was. The Circlet Treasury of Erotic Steampunk plays upon many classic Victorian and steampunk concepts for erotic purposes. If a mad, or not-so-mad, scientist of the steam age were to create his or her own clockwork being, what desires would be reflected there? If the airship were to let us unmoor from the ground, would the strictures of society and propriety fall away as well? Victorian erotica was notoriously adventurous, ours can be no less."This is an enjoyable group of tales that solidly fits the bill as steampunk and erotica. For those who are unfamiliar with steampunk it is a splendid jumping in point. Of course the erotica only adds to the enjoyment."-The Baryon Review"Readers (such as this reviewer) who were raised on nineteenth-century fantasy literature will love the facsimile versions for grown-ups in this collection. All the writers seem familiar enough with the period to fake it convincingly while including more explicit sex than the authors of the time dared to describe. A good introduction to steampunk for readers who are unfamiliar with it."-Jean Roberta, for TCM Reviews.--Provided by publisher
