Clockwork Fagin (Free story from Steampunk!) - Cory Doctorow Steampunk YA novella set in an orphanage for children maimed from accidents in factories and run by a sadistic man. Then one day a new orphan shows up and things turn around.I don't want to give away what happens here, but it is violent, gory, but wholly inventive. It was weird and I'm sure I'm supposed to be grossed out by what happens, but I also thought it was poetic justice and I ended up really liking the story.[The story is in a new YA Steampunk anthology, but I got it as a freebie on Amazon - a promo for the antho, I think. I do plan on reading the rest of the stories in the collection.]
