ESpec books has put together a collection that combines the strange science of steampunk and the weirdness of the afterlife with their collection After Punk: Steampowered Tales of the Afterlife. Edited by Danielle Ackley-Mcphail and Greg Schauer, this collection feels like someone gathered a series of tales from the height of the Spiritualism era mixed with a few more modern ideas. The stories may be short, but they pack a punch.
If you want to know what it would be like for the Pinkertons to encounter the afterlife, or what a special machine that could communicate with dead loved ones could do, you will enjoy this book. As with almost all short story collections, a few stories shine brighter than others, but After Punk: Steampowered Tales of the Afterlife is enjoyable throughout.
After Punk: Steampowered Tales of the Afterlife is now available from eSpec books.
