Steamlust is romantic erotica that reflects the excitement, fantasy, and rebellion of steampunk. Not sure what steampunk is? Think Victorian elegance and aesthetics meets futuristic invention and exploration. The genre of steampunk itself has transcended the Victorian (or Edwardian) eras - in Kristina Wright's inventive anthology, it can be any time period, real or imagined, that blends elements of science, history, fantasy, and technology. Until Steamlust, the genre had been missing romantic relationships and erotic encounters.
Steampunk erotic romance is shiny brass and crushed velvet; mechanical inventions and romantic conventions; sexual fantasy and kinky fetish. It's steam powered sexy romance!
Editrix extraordinaire Kristina Wright creates a lush and fantastical world of women-centered stories and romantic scenarios, a first for steampunk fiction. Fetishizing the wardrobe, language, fantasy, and rituals of steampunk, Steamlust includes alternate histories, second worlds, time travel, and contemporary settings.
I really enjoyed this! Each author did such a fantastic job at both conveying a world of steampunk uniquely theirs as well a lovely erotic and romantic take in such short stories. Very impressing! I will be looking for more of their works.
variety is (they say) the spice of life unfortunately this is as bland as a bad tie,the narrator cant settle on an accent and the stories them self's felt repetitive.As a steam punk fan I personally felt cheated by this collection.
