Sorcery, Steam, and Steel: A SteamGoth Anthology (Volume 2)

SteamGoth encompasses the magical and paranormal side of SteamPunk. Where SteamPunk is the science fiction version of the Victorian period, SteamGoth is the fantasy/horror version. SteamGoth can be about vampires, zombies, or werewolves. It can also just as easily be about combating eldritch Gods from beyond space and time.
