The kindly folks of the Keystone Gaming Society dig my steampunk story, “Scourge of the Spoils,” included in the DAW Books anthology, Steampunk’d, that came out a few months ago. Here’s an abbreviated version of what they have to say:

“This is one of the best short stories I’ve read in a long time…. By the end, you’re left amazed by the twist that you know you should have seen coming but, I’m sure, you didn’t. Bravo Matthew Mayo, I’ll definitely be checking out some of your other work.”


“I read the Matthew Mayo story and loved it…. and I’m not even a fan of the steampunk genre! I would recommend it to fans of sci-fi in general. Very tight, well-written story!”
