THE THACKERY T. LAMBSHEAD CABINET OF CURIOSITIES
Genre: Fantasy, Anthology, Steampunk
Steampunk fans take note: this anthology is a visual and verbal feast. Lavishly illustrated, every story concerns an object from the fictional Dr. Thackery T. Lambshead’s astounding collection of curiosities. Standouts include China Miéville's “Pulvadmonitor: The Dust’s Warning,” N.K. Jemisin’s “The Singular Taffy Puller” and Ted Chiang’s “Dacey’s Patent Automatic Nanny.” Told in a wide array of styles, there’s something in this anthology for everyone — from the slightly disturbing to the outright creepy.
In 2002, Dr. Thackery T. Lambshead passed away at his home in England, leaving behind an astounding array of mysterious and astonishing objects — each having its own story about where it came from and how it was acquired by Dr. Lambshead. This illustrated steampunk anthology is a collection of those stories from a wide array of noted fantasy writers including (but not limited to) Naomi Novik, Carrie Vaughn, Michael Moorcock, Garth Nix, Holly Black and many, many more — there are some 30 works in this volume.
