    "This book meets your requirement. Strong gay characters in the world of steampunk. Be warned that this book is only 90 pages, so it could be read in just a few days. I'm sure there are better choices for this topic that have more detailed and evolving story lines. "

    "I absolutely love this anthology, particularly because all of the stories Armstrong chose work so well together. It's also great seeing diverse sexualities in a genre that just screams diversity but is so often played straight."

    "Clockwork Heart fills an odd niche in steampunk novels with openly gay characters. I loved how very inclusive this romance novel was and how it incorporated a very cool atmosphere into the story line. I wish there was more of a following for this type of material because this is a very worthwhile story."

    "In the wild world we live in, Island of Icarus is a book that fits in a niche that would have been unheard of just a few years ago. It has interesting characters, intriguing themes and should keep steampunk junkies on the edge of their seats."

    "The Disassembled Life of Duncan Cole is a wonderful book that just happens to have gay characters. I loved everything about Duncan Cole and his adventures, in and out of the bedroom. The book wasn't in your face sexual and showed his personal growth in his relationship and sexuality. I love that while his homosexuality wasn't focused on as anything other than a man learning how to express his feelings."

    "This book examines social hierarchy where the love of two men attempts to flourish despite their opposing status. I did admire that Gabriel, who was part of a Cast Equality Movement, vowed not to take advantage of those with less ranking than him. Lucio, his love interest, is from the Pleasure Cast which is considered the lowest rung of the ladder. It's a very romantic book set in a steampunk world back in time. I will admit I bought this purely because of the cover alone out of curiosity. It was far more than I expected."
