December 8th, 2016 1 Comment

It’s that time — in fact, a bit past the time — to create a post that makes it easier for readers to peruse all the things we published in 2016, for purposes of consideration for awards, or simply for the fun of exploring and catching up on what you might have missed. In April, we produced Clockwork Phoenix 5, the newest installment in our anthology series showcasing “stories of beauty and strangeness” and our biggest yet. The book itself

My 2016 World Fantasy Convention schedule

October 24th, 2016 No Comments

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

March 23rd, 2016 No Comments

For reasons good and bad, I’m awfully behind in promoting my latest writing and publishing hijinx. So, belatedly but enthusiastically, more than three weeks after the fact, I’m thrilled to announce that my second short story collection, the ultra-ultraweird The Spider Tapestries: Seven Strange Stories, is loose in the world!   I had been planning on Book Day to share the full text of the wonderful blurb that World Fantasy Award winner Scott Nicolay wrote for The Spider Tapestries—except I

January 21st, 2016 No Comments

I’m a bit behind everyone else in posting something like this, to which I apologize to the authors, who all deserve as much attention as possible for their terrific work. I have a reasonable excuse, though, as for the past three and a half months I’ve been preoccupied with finalizing all the e-book and paperback editions of books that I owed the backers of the Clockwork Phoenix 5 Kickstarter. There’s still plenty more to be done, but I’ve reached a
