Steam-Powered Postcards

Book 2 of 7: Postcard Stories

Can you tell a story in exactly 50 words? The Three Moms of the Apocalypse went to Louisiana’s World Steampunk Exposition and Makers Faire in Lafayette, LA and issued a challenge.

Tell us a story that could fit on the back of a postcard. Use 50 words, no more, no less. We’ll provide the postcards.

The response to this challenge was huge!

So many wonderful authors decided to take up the challenge that it was a real struggle to pick the 20 best stories.

Steam-Powered Postcards, the second Postcards anthology from Raconteur Press, contains our favorite stories, the pictures that inspired them, plus a few exciting extras. We hope you enjoy the stories as much as we did and maybe take some inspiration to try one for yourself!
