Today is the official launch date for Bone Swans, the debut collection of short fiction from C.S.E. Cooney. We’re really excited and proud to be bringing this one out — a recent review at Tor.com described Claire’s book as “a fascinating mashup between the tropes and resonances of the mythic tale with the sensibilities of contemporary action-oriented fantasy” and the reviewer further noted that she could see why, “of all the small presses to pick up this book, it was

We’re one day out from the official release of Bone Swans by C.S.E. Cooney (though, truth be told, it’s already available at Amazon, Nook, iTunes, Kobo and a bunch of other places).   The book has already accumulated a number of accolades. However, in the short, small scale-history of Mythic Delirium Books, I’ve never seen anything like what happened July 1, when three enthusiastic reviews appeared on the same day in different venues:   • From Tor.com short fiction reviewer

The July-September MYTHIC DELIRIUM is live!

Mythic_Delirium_2_1_cover_small

Mythic Delirium begins its third year as a digital publication (yes, two whole years have past since our print-to-electronic metamorphosis, wow) with three tales of magical protagonists haunted by past events. (See the new issue here.)   We join a vampire moving in the worlds of high fashion and higher powers; a sea witch crashing a royal wedding with a (familial) blood score to settle; an enchanted chess game with life-and-death consequences, with the opponents separated by a century.

The latest issue of Locus Magazine holds a lovely review by Faren Miller of C.S.E. Cooney’s debut collection Bone Swans. (Just in time for us to add it to the finalized version of the cover!)   “Writing without ostentation and featuring characters who may be flippant, terse, or even tongue-tied, Cooney produces memorable prose propelled by extraordinary ideas…Faced with such twisted genius, I’ll say no more!”   Congratulations to Claire! And here’s another reminder that we’ll officially debut Bone Swans

Just after finishing our successful Kickstarter campaign for Clockwork Phoenix 5, we complete the second year of Mythic Delirium Mark II with our featured content for June.   In “‘Kid’ Cooper & the Blackwood Ape-Man,” Adam Howe fuses history and folklore to sculpt a rollicking tale set in the American South. With sharp strokes, Natalia Theodoridou reexamines a gruesome Greek tragedy in “Philomela in Seven Movements.” Dominik Parisien wryly muses on the monstrous nature of art and the artistic nature

The dust is starting to settle from our successful Kickstarter to launch Clockwork Phoenix 5. What an intense May.   During that frantic time a wonderful thing happened that I want to make sure folks didn’t miss. The first official review appeared of C.S.E. Cooney’s debut collection of fantasy stories, Bone Swans, and it was a starred review from Publishers Weekly!   Cooney’s brilliantly executed collection of five stories is a delicious stew of science fiction, horror, and fantasy, marked

A new CLOCKWORK PHOENIX rises!

The wonderful if rhetorically awkward thing about Kickstarter is that, to give credit where credit is due, one must say thank you to everyone at every stage in the campaign, over and over and over again.   Thank you to everyone who pledged. To everyone who raised their pledges. (Some several times!) To everyone who found themselves in tight financial spots yet still made some sacrifice for this campaign because they wanted it to succeed.   Thank you to everyone

Tanith Lee and CLOCKWORK PHOENIX

Tanith Lee

This morning I learned that Tanith Lee has passed away. Tanith had stories in all four of the previous volumes of Clockwork Phoenix. As Anita put it in a metaphor I know Tanith would appreciate, she was part of the spine of Clockwork Phoenix. Tanith’s story “The Woman” was the very first story I ever accepted for Clockwork Phoenix, back when we were being published through Vera Nazarian’s Norilana Books. With its rich language, sumptuous setting, surreal atmosphere and provocative
