In conjunction with David D. Levine’s steampunk novelette “Liaisons Galantes: A Scientific Romance” in BCS #108 and the release of Ann VanderMeer’s new anthology Steampunk Revolution, BCS is giving away a signed copy of Steampunk Revolution!

Steampunk Revolution is Ms. VanderMeer’s third steampunk anthology, after Steampunk and Steampunk Reloaded (which featured a Margaret Ronald story from BCS). It includes stories by Cherie Priest, Carrie Vaughn, Catherynne M. Valente, Genevieve Valentine, N. K. Jemisin, Jeffrey Ford, and more, alongside “Salvage” by Margaret Ronald from BCS #77.

It’s a gorgeous trade-paperback, and this copy is signed by Ms. VanderMeer to BCS.

To enter the giveaway, comment on this post (here’s a link to the comment box) and say what your favorite steampunk element in a story in BCS is, and why.

For example, a steampunk element could be the airship or goggles in a particular story. :) But maybe look for something a little more specific than that. The winner will be chosen from a random drawing of all entries.

This giveaway ends Wed. Nov. 28. For the Full Rules, click on Show Hidden Text at the end of this post.
