We already got quite a few recommendations so I decided to create a new subpage for the ones mentioned by challenge participants. This way we can always come back to one spot and check out what people suggested.
You will also find more suggestions on the Steampunk reviews page where participants linked us directly up to their reviews.
Since I am not familiar with the genre (yet) I have no clue how to divide suggestions into possible topics or even sub-sub-genres (which might exist). So I will just list anthologies separate from the rest.
