November 22nd, 2013 No Comments

When we ran the Kickstarter in 2012 that made it possible to bring the Clockwork Phoenix series back from the ashes, we offered, for $1,000, to create a special edition of the book signed by all the contributors. We had one taker, and this past Monday that single book was handed to its rightful owner.   As my final Clockwork Phoenix 4 post, of this week, here is that special book’s eight month odyssey, with pictures. #SFWApro   In April,

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
