Queen Victoria’s Book of Spells: An Anthology of Gaslamp Fantasy by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling

queen victoriaI love steampunk fantasy, I love magic, and I love just about anything that will take me to that world. So, when you have many short stories that revolve around these things, I am good to go!

There are 18 different short stories that dip into Victorian England and the masses of magic, faeries, folklore, some fantasy, horror, and a little bit of the steampunk genre that we all know and love.

It will be a quick read, but one that gives you a taste of the world of gaslamp fantasy and steampunk mythology.

What anthologies have you enjoyed reading? In what genre were they in? Comment below and let me know!
