Cover Art - "Closets & Corsets" edited by Trisha Trelep

Thanks to Ann Aguirre on Facebook and Tez Miller we have the cover to a new steampunk romance anthology called Corsets & Clockwork. Release date is May 2011.

A stunning anthology of the very best of steampunk that's taking teen fiction by storm. Bestselling romance editor Trisha Telep brings an exciting new element to the fast-growing sub-genre of steampunk, which bends and blends the old and the new in increasingly popular dark urban fantasies. Young heroes and heroines battle evil, in various forms with the help of super-technological or supernatural powers, while falling in and out of love.

  1. Thanks for the heads up - I am a big fan of the stuff Ms Telep edits..

    Loads of cool authors involved here...

    Beautiful cover..


  2. I have yet to read any steampunk. I really should do something about that.

  3. Awesome cover!

    Hey Doug, have you read The Iron Duke yet?

  4. I love the clockwor design on the left! XD
    Really nice cover!

  5. Erotic Horizons I like Trisha's anthologies too. She always seems to gather great combination's of authors and stories and this one certainly has an all-star cast...

    Jessica I show my age when I say I liked the original Wild Wild West which had so many steampunk elements in it. With the exception of the works of Jules Verne I pretty much discovered steampunk through television and the movies.

    KB Yep. Great art just right for the subject matter. Haven't read Iron Duke yet but it is on my wish list...

    yllektra a nice balanced design - not too in your face with the steampunk/clockwork stuff that so many of the books have.
