There's a book being released at World Fantasy Convention this year called Shanghai Steam. Basically, these stories are a fusion of steampunk and wuxia (Chinese historical epics with a heavy emphasis on martial arts). It's from Absolute X Press, edited by Ace Jordyn, Calvin Jim and Renée Bennett, with stories from a whole range of writers including my friends Camille Alexa and Amanda Clark. I mention this here because I wrote the introduction for the project.

If you're going to be at World Fantasy, they're having a release party, and they'll be at the EDGE Press booth. Check it out.

This makes me think of the forthcoming game FAR WEST. Some similar ideas...

And yeah, beautiful cover. I'd buy this if I was going to World Fantasy.
