April 18th, 2016 No Comments

So, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m still playing the “belated” game, which is why I’m only now getting to the official post declaring that our newest anthology, Clockwork Phoenix 5, is available everywhere — though, to be fair, numerous shouts resounded via more ephemeral social media outlets on the April 5 launch date, and the launch reading that day was a smash success. More about that anon.   First, links to all the places you can find

I’m lagging behind in reporting this, but better than never reporting it at all, as they say.

I’ve been meaning to share this one for a while.   The Banjo Apocalypse Crinoline Troubadours consist of C.S.E. Cooney, Amal El-Mohtar, Caitlyn Paxson (and sometimes Patty Templeton and/or Nicole Kornher-Stace) — all of whom have been contributors to Mythic Delirium and some to Clockwork Phoenix as well.   The Troubadours put on a performance in January and posted many videos from said performance to YouTube. With permission, I’m sharing renditions of two poems by Amal that first appeared in

October 15th, 2013 No Comments

The folks at Podcastle have adapted a second story from Clockwork Phoenix 4 to audio — this time it’s “The Wanderer King” by Alisa Alering. Click here to have a listen.   A sample from the text:     We steer clear of the mines–that’s Fixer territory. The Wanderers are dangerous, too, ever since they came fighting back around Day 30. But there’s always been less of them–less in all, and less because they scatter through the woods on their
