Publisher Steven Saus sends us a Kickstarter for "a diverse steampunk anthology from your favorite award-winning authors, including Jay Lake, Nisi Shawl, Ken Liu, and Lucy A. Snyder."
The editor for this anthology came to me a year and a half ago with the idea. We've spent that time making sure we could get a truly diverse range of authors and characters and tell great stories. (We are not fans of "stick a gear on it" steampunk.)
We're raising money on Kickstarter to do pay a fair rate to the authors - and with stretch goals of exclusive covers from James Ng, interior art, and possibly funding a second volume of diverse steampunk stories.

Although there will never be a consensus about the best way to make coffee, any coffee connoisseur will agree that controlling the grind of your beans and balancing water temperature are the keys to a tasty cup.
