Many of these romance/fantasy stories, with the exception of "Rude Mechanicals" and perhaps "The Clockwork Corset", are only borderline steampunk and if you're interested in the genre, I'd recommend the Steampunk! anthology (2011) instead. On a side note, "King of the Greenlight City" has parallels with The Last Airbender from an interesting perspective.

Some of the finest & most imaginative short stories I've ever read! No wonder steampunk is so popular. Definitively not just for YA. btw, "The Clockwork Corsage" listed here is really "The Clockwork Corset," which makes a lot more sense in light of the book title and contents.
