Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded - Jeff VanderMeer, Ann VanderMeer Like most anthologies of short stories, this was uneven. I read about a third of the stories all the way through and enjoyed them. Others, I only read the first few pages before realizing they weren't for me. So, on balance, I'd say it was so-so. The good stories were very good and because it was a thick book, that was quite a bit of enjoyable reading. But I don't think I'll bother to read Steampunk I.
