The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities: Exhibits, Oddities, Images, and Stories from Top Authors and Artists - Mur Lafferty, Holly Black, Lev Grossman, Cherie Priest, Jeff VanderMeer, Alex Grossman, S.J. Chambers, Jess Gulbranson, Gio Clairval, Eric Orchard, Ekaterina Sedia, Jayme Lynn Blaschke, Ann VanderMeer, Charles Yu, Will Hindmarch, Ted Chiang, Jeffrey Ford, Michael Moorcock A collection of a fictional collection. An impressive gathering of well-known and lesser-known authors contribute to this loose compilation defining Thackery T. Lambshead and the items stored in his cabinet. As is inevitable, some stories definitely rise above others. The first chapter on the Broadmore Exhibits sets the bar fairly high for the following chapters.

The cabal that gathered for this steampunk-infused anthology are leaders in expanding where speculative fiction will go in the future; leaving readers like me eagerly awaiting where we will be taken next.
