Steampunk Month Comes to An End (Month in Review)

Imperial Inventor by James Ng

Steampunk Month is at a close. And what a month it has been.  This is without a doubt the biggest month I've had since Mad Hatter's Bookshelf launched. A huge thanks and a tip of the hat to all the authors, editors, publicists, and bloggers who helped make everything happen. Cheers to all of you!

I hope long time fans of the genre found something new and those who have never picked up a Steampunk book have been inspired to do so.  The quality of the guest posts were at an all-time high and many great issues with the genre were brought to light. Sufficed to say it was fun while it lasted, but I'm looking forward to reading other genres at present, but you can still look forward to regular coverage of Steampunk in the future for all the new visitors.  In fact the next review will be a hold over I didn't have time to finish before the end of October. Below is an index of sorts to all the steamy goodness brought to you this past month.
