The modern day steampunk genre is a reinventing of the past through the eyes of its inventors and adventures, but this collection is from real Victorians and Edwardians who saw the future potential of science and its daring possibilities. Steam-powered automobiles, submarines, and robots are featured alongside great airships and spaceships in these bold and creative stories of hope, triumph, and disaster' (back cover).

    'The stories collected here indicate something of the richness and variety of science fiction written by Australian authors up until the mid-1930s. We see some of the themes mentioned above, for example the lost civilisation story (Phil Collas’s “The Inner Domain”) and the future invasion story (Ernest Favenc’s “What the Rats Brought”), but they offer something new and original, while other stories are built on the consequences of technological discoveries or advancements, for example Ernest Favenc’s “The Land of the Unseen,” H.B. Marriott Watson’s “The Instrument,” and Beatrice Grimshaw’s “Lost Wings.”'
