  7. I read the anthology a couple of months ago and enjoyed it quite a bit. Was too busy at the time to write a review, but I have hopes of writing one in the next day or two, as it is one of the best anthologies I’ve read in any language this year.

  9. Hi Lavietidhar,

    My name is Gianpaolo. I am both a Tarja publisher and one of the authors of the ‘Steampunk – Stories of an Extraordinary Past’ book.

    I am writing because we are considering publish it in other countries and, before start to translate the book, or at least part of it, to English, I like to know if you can help indicating us some publishing houses in order to make the first contacts easier.
