Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, August 09, 2017
I came across this good-condition softcover at a local Savers thrift shop, and couldn't resist it. It's a Kickstarter-published anthology themed on an alien invasion of an alternate-history steampunk world - sounds fun!

Later: Entertaining mix of stories here, mostly using Wells' Martian invaders as the "alien" inspiration, but with quite diverse interpretations. There are Wild West settings, variations where the aliens are the protagonists, riffs on Alice in Wonderland, defectors-from-decadence, an epistolary tale of robot-aided gold-mining in the Klondike, and a very amusing take on world domination by a sentient plant-creature!

My favorite of the lot is Jason Palmatier's "Heart of the Empire," in which an elderly Admiral actually has a steampowered heart - and a devotion to his Queen that leads him to marvelous deeds in defense of her and the realm. Lots of action, and lots of heart, in more ways than one!
