Oh, cool! That's the one you mentioned before. I got myself a copy of it too, but I haven't started reading it yet. Glad to hear that you're liking it so far. :)

Actually there are several on Amazon that are free. Just type steampunk in the search bar.

Check out Steampunk Fairy Tales on Amazon

It is free I believe.

Thank you, got it as well. :)

I must say I have never read any steampunk novels but am so fascinated by them and have a huge desire to read them, but haven't yet. Maybe I haven't picked up any of them to read due to the fear I won't love the genre because I am a fan of steampunk in general, but this forum makes me realize how I need to venture out and pick up a book! Will definitely take some of the recommendations on here as what to read for my first steampunk genre experience.

I have never read anything in the steampunk genre, but I have always been intrigued by the art produced by steampunk. This is definitely a genre that I am interested in exploring.
