The Ghost Is the Machine

The Blurb:
An Anthology of Steampunk Inspired Ghost Stories

The Ghost IS the Machine – Steampunk meets Horror and the machines might just win.

Machines define human society.

But that doesn’t mean they have to play nice.

A new collection of steampunk inspired ghost stories from some of the best rising talent in speculative fiction. Plus a genre gem by Stoker Award-winning, New York Times-bestselling author Joe Hill.

Take a ride on the treacherous Thunderdrome. Entrust your future to Life-Bright Augmentation Facilities. Go on a journey with the head of the Leon Salvatorium Corporation. And click off a few with your second-hand Polaroid.

Just don’t be surprised if the mantle clock, piano or that classic typewriter is watching you from across the room.
