So here we are, almost to the end of 2016, and our last pieces of featured fiction and poetry for the year are available now for everybody to read. In Chris Reinhardt’s first published story, “Fade to Glass,” we get a charming combination of the comical and mystical, as a hapless soul’s strange condition attracts cult worship and government experiments. Accomplished poets Sandi Leibowitz and Jeannine Hall Gailey, whose many contributions go back to our days as a print zine,

Service, TJ Radcliffe offers a verse narrative about dark supernatural doings across the sands of Mars in “The Revenge of Hillier’s Belle.” In our first featured poem, “Champagne Ivy,” Gwynne Garfinkle explores the tragedy of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde from a

At the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, Ohio, this past weekend (Sunday, Oct. 30), Bone Swans by C.S.E. Cooney won the World Fantasy Award for best collection. Anita and I were there to see Claire Cooney make her acceptance speech, dedicating her win to her mentor, Gene Wolfe. It’s just about impossible for us to express how proud we are to be the publishers of Bone Swans, and what a stunning surprise it was when announcer Gordon Van Gelder read

Anita and I will be at the World Fantasy Convention this weekend, primarily to cheer on C.S.E. Cooney, whose book from our imprint, Bone Swans: Stories, is up for the World Fantasy Award for Best Collection against some very stiff competition. Our fingers are crossed regardless. Before Sunday’s ceremony, we’ll have plenty of time to hang out at the bar and chat — but I will be making a couple of “official programming” appearances, both of them on Friday. At

As Anita and I prepare for an appearance next week at the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, Ohio, we decided to renew a Clockwork Phoenix tradition. With the release of each volume, we have made a few of the stories from the anthology available free to read, as a sort of sampler platter. Though our plan all along has been to do the same with the new book, life circumstances had delayed us. But no longer! To make up for

Our fall 2016 issue (click here to view) has arrived, and it is full of ghosts who walk the Earth (or Mars) and people who become as ghosts. In Andrew Gilstrap’s short fiction debut, a man in black with a guitar has a thing or two to share with a roomful of music fans about the afterlife. TJ Radcliffe gives us a story in verse about supernatural vengeance across the sands of Mars. Chris Reinhardt, in his fiction debut, shares

Last time I wrote an update, Anita and I were about to drive up to Readercon in Boston. A whole lot has happened since, some of it fun, most of it not fun at all, but for purposes of this update I’m sticking to the fun stuff.   Readercon itself was terrific for us. We held in essence a second launch reading and launch party for the Clockwork Phoenix 5 anthology. Rob Cameron, A.C. Wise, C.S.E. Cooney and Carlos Hernandez,
