    • Steampunk Poe sounds really cool. I’d like to see the illustrations. I’ll have to check it out. My godson loves to read and he’s into steampunk and he reads steampunk fiction (I didn’t even know such a thing existed until a few months ago), so he might like this as well. He’s older though, 16. What do you think?

      • It’s pretty much Edgar Allen Poe’s stories but with Steampunk illustrations so I think he’d like it. I also have another book called Steampunk! by Kelly Link and Gavin Grant. Its a bunch of short stories but I haven’t read it yet but it looks like a harder reading level. Let me know if he reads / likes them!
