Steampunk Month

Announcing Discounts on the Store for Steampunk Month!

In celebration of Steampunk Month here on, we’ve decided to kick off our discounting program on the Store with a selection of steampunk titles from all publishers. This list of books and comics was compiled by our resident steampunk expert, Tor Books editor Liz Gorinsky, and while certainly not comprehensive, represents some of the best of the form, including classics like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling’s The Difference Engine and newer fare, like Warren Ellis and paul Duffield’s Freakangels. All the books on this list are discounted at 30% in the Store, which isn’t a bad deal, and comparable to what you’ll find at other online book retailers. They will remain at 30% until 31 October. Look for the nifty badge on the book covers (shown here); that’s how you’ll know the book is eligible.

Why should you buy from us, rather than your old online standbys? Well, this is what my corporate overlords are calling a pilot program—one that, if it’s successful, we’ll be able to do more of, hopefully culminating in full discounts across the board. If you like what is doing now, and our curated picks of books are making you excited, but the pricing is not, now is your chance to demonstrate that. The more you buy, the better the chances that we’ll see more of this type of thing. Below is the full list, with links to each book in the Store. Additionally, all the books are on the featured spot of the Store homepage, and collected in a list, as special picks. Enjoy, and happy reading!
