Clockwork Fagin (Free story from Steampunk!) - Cory Doctorow Steampunk with a dark sombre dystopian edge and a flavouring of the classic Oliver Twist story to boot. Although the genre can be a little over the top and out there for some, it also fills the gaps left between the more popular genres.The story is a little dark and if tales about children being mistreated make you shed a tear then I suggest a tissue to wipe the occasional damp eye.I liked the idea of the meek overcoming the strong via talent, working together and sheer tenacity.This tale is a pefect introduction to steampunk. Just enough to give you a taste and leave you wanting more.
