Mamutul Dieselpunk pe raftul meu de biblioteca…

513KwOYxPTL._SX316_BO1,204,203,200_Book Description : 25 tales of anarchic mayhem exploring the history of the future

Astazi mi-a ajuns prin posta in format paperback volumul editat de Sean Wallace, The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk (Mammoth Books) si unde avem povestirea Cosmobotica de Tony Pi si Costi Gurgu, scriitorul roman de science fiction stabilit de ani buni in Canada.

De mentionat ca este unul dintre cele 14 texte scrise special pentru Antologie, restul de 8 fiind selectate din alte surse…

Si avand in vedere ca de cand am descoperit revista The Dark Magazine, Sean Wallace a devenit unul dintre editorii mei preferati,  am sperante ca nu o sa fiu dezmagit.

Dieselpunk-ul ar fi un fel de Steampunk, dar situat intre cele doua razboaie mondiale si nu in epoca Victoriana…


Dieselpunk: an emerging retro-futuristic sub-genre, similar to steampunk, based on the era between the First World War and the start of the Atomic Age, merging elements of noir, pulp, and the past with today’s technology . . . and sometimes a dash of the occult.

Award-winning editor Wallace presents a cutting-edge collection of twenty-five vibrant stories that explore the possibilities of history while sweeping readers into high-powered hydrocarbon-fuelled adventures. Join us in an era when engines were huge, fuel was cheap and plentiful, and steel and chrome blended with the grit and grease of modern machines.
