Waiting on Wednesday
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Corsets & Clockwork
A YA Steampunk Romance anthology edited by Teresa Telep.
Release date: May 10, 2011
From SciFiGuy.ca: “A stunning anthology of the very best of steampunk that’s taking teen fiction by storm. Bestselling romance editor Trisha Telep brings an exciting new element to the fast-growing sub-genre of steampunk, which bends and blends the old and the new in increasingly popular dark urban fantasies. Young heroes and heroines battle evil, in various forms with the help of super-technological or supernatural powers, while falling in and out of love.”
Steampunk is all the rage in YA these days. Lots of awesome authors involved in this one, including Canada’s Lesley Livingston (author of Wondrous Strange). Gorgeous cover, too!
