This important part of the world’s population keeps the rest of us happy with great mechanisms. Trains, planes, automobiles, ticking clocks, elevators, drink machines, and more, rely on this wonderful technology. A type of technology that lets the maker watch the action, take pleasure in the movement, and then explore new things a leftover lonely cog can do for us.

At Dark Oak Press, we celebrate the Gadget Lovers and have books just for you! That’s right, Steampunk takes your love of cogs and levers, mixes it with stories of magical beings, conspiracies, weapons, and all types of transportation, and gives you hours of enjoyment.

We invite you to explore the books in our Steampunk collection and indulge in your passion. Many of these are anthologies meaning they are a collection of shorter stories by multiple authors. Anthologies allow you to explore different writing styles and stories in small bursts leaving you time to build your next great machine with ideas the stories inspire.

Celebrate life as a Gadget Lover with others who appreciate the importance of even the smallest gear and show the world how important mechanical devices are to life!
