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

The following entry was originally posted at the Clockwork Phoenix 5 Kickstarter:   Howdy, Clockwork Phoenix 5 backers!   Wow! We had a surge in pledges yesterday, mostly due to a batch of new people learning about the exclusive chapbooks we’re offering. (My thanks to Elizabeth McClellan, Alexandra Erin and Cat Valente herself for that!)   It made me realize that perhaps I’ve not done the clearest job of explaining exactly what those chapbooks are. But before I get to

Last week I launched a new Kickstarter campaign to fund Clockwork Phoenix 5, which I hope will be the next installment in our critically-acclaimed, award-nominated flagship anthology series.   With the costs of shipping and printing having risen, and the professional standard payment for fiction also having risen, my funding goal for this new book is pretty epic, $11,000. But we’re six days in and more than 1/5 of the way to the goal, so we’re off to a promising

Tiffany Trent, author of the young adult novels The Unnaturalists and The Tinker King, has added to the accumulating accolades for C.S.E. Cooney’s debut collection Bone Swans:   C.S.E. Cooney’s Bone Swans is like visiting a literary Ys. Coaxed by her deft hand, lands and people long lost to memory resurface, breaking through the hearts of readers with the force of a gentle tsunami. Once that wave has broken over you, you are never the same.   We’ve got an

C.S.E. Cooney‘s debut collection Bone Swans keeps accumulating accolades, the latest coming from fantasy author Nicole Kornher-Stace:   If your familiarity begins and ends with C.S.E. Cooney’s poetry, do yourself a favor and stick around for these novellas. If you aren’t new to her stories, know that you will find her here at the top of her not inconsiderable game. Highly original, mythic in scope, lyrically told, just plain fun.   Don’t forget that we plan to debut Cooney’s book
