Anthologies seeking submissions - July 2012 edition

(Photo from here with more exquisite steampunk girls!)

I think I've already made up my mind what anthology I want to write a story for this month. I saw it on Tania Walsh's site and I couldn't resist it based on the title alone. "Real Girls Don't Rust."
