As you can see, I’ve been branching out lately. This is my first anthology review. Let me know if you would like to see more!
A moon of gears and wires shines down upon a world of clockwork creations and humming airships. What adventures await the heroes in top hats and heroines in corsets?
Eighteen authors wait at the kingdom’s entrance. They smile and beckon you inside their stories.
Do you accept the offered lantern and follow?

Under a Brass Moon is an interesting steampunk anthology that feels more YA than adult. This is my first anthology review, and its kind of tricky because there were a few stories that I loved, and others that I really struggled getting through. There were about 18 authors so you can imagine the variety that exists within its pages. Rather than give details about every author here in the review, I have included a link at the end of the post that you can click and learn more.
Even though there were 18 authors, there were 26 stories because some of the authors did multiple stories. A couple of my favorites were The Balloon Thief by Jessica Gunn and Henry the Taylor by Grant Eagar, but most of the stories were mediocre. I can think of one in particular that I didn’t even want to finish. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific as to what I liked and what I didn’t like in this review, but I would have to review each story separately.
I am going to have give the anthology 3 out of 5 Stars
