Where Sword and Soul ends and before Steamfunk begins, there is the Age of Spring Techlogy and Clockwork. Imagine an alternate universe where chromancer Benjamin Banneker crafts a world of automatons, clockwork airships and other marvels; where Nat Turner leads a rebellion, killing hordes of vampire slave owners; where the pirate queen, Black Pitch Pauline joins Jean-Jacques Dessalines in defeating Napoleon during the Haitian Revolution. Think Three Finger'd Jack; the pirate, Black Caesar; the Black Count, Nat Turner, and the Sto Rebellion...THAT is Rococoa! Fourteen masters of speculative fiction have taken a new genre, embraced its established themes and refashioned them in surprising ways and settings. The result is an anthology that defies its genre even as it defines it.
