Amid a cacophony of cranking sprockets and cogs, in chuffs of steam and soot, Clockwork Kiru: Steampunk Haiku looks to the future through the lens of the past - through the imagistic language of haiku. In this anthology of steampunk haiku, fifty authors take the reader on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure with haiku of mystery, magic, science and romance.With haiku by Alex Plummer, Andrew J.
