"A beautiful and strange romp through the astonishing world of steampunk"In An Iron Cage" is a thoroughly enjoyable read for steampunk afficionados and might even turn a few of the people who are not yet certain about their feelings about the genre into true fans."4 Stars, Robert Deckert, reader

"In An Iron Cage contains some of the most creative and finest steampunk short stories I’ve ever read. It demonstrates some of the countless directions talented authors can take the genre, and it’s an anthology I’d highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of steampunk already, or who is thinking about checking the genre out to see for him/herself why it’s attaining such popularity"Douglas Cobb, BookSpot Central

‘In An Iron Cage’ gave me a nice cross-section of authors and flavors. Overall, an interesting introduction to Steampunk.  The Bibliophilic Book Blog
