First, this is a great read – very entertaining throughout as a collection of short ghost stories. Some of these are extremely well written, draw the reader in, and deliver a chilling blow that is effective and spooky. Sadly, most of these (with the exception of two) have no similarity to the Steampunk genre greater than the use of some form of device or machine. If you are hoping to find work reminiscent of H.G. Wells (with haunted time machine) you’ll probably be disappointed. Most of the writer’s featured are horror writers and there is little incorporation of Industrial age steam powered or gear and cog style alternate technology. If you like a good ghost story and aren’t too picky about the use of the term “Steampunk”, this anthology is well worth reading…

Read the rest of the review here. Order THE GHOST IS THE MACHINE, edited by Patrick Scalisi, in paperback or ebook from Amazon.com, or in limited edition hardcover directly from Post Mortem Press.
