This particular phoenix has risen from its ashes triumphant. — Strange Horizons Clockwork Phoenix 4, much like its predecessors, is a high quality, well-organized, engaging anthology. — Tor.com A first rate series of anthologies … The book is stylistically of a piece with its predecessors — a set of well-written stories occupying multiple subgenres, usually in the same story, often ambiguously. — Locus The tone ranges from dark to heartwarming and simple. The overall quality is high … Several of the pieces are quite challenging. Readers will do well to pick up a copy. — Locus Online What makes this fourth edition so special is that it belongs to an impassioned community of writers and readers who went above and beyond to make it happen. … All eighteen [stories] have the power to pull the reader out of his own reality and transport or transform them entirely. — Cabinet des Fées This 4th volume of Clockwork Phoenix contains an excellent diversity of speculative fiction ranging from cold and hopeless to harsh but victorious and warm and fulfilling. It was a pleasure to read. — Tangent Online What kind of stories will you find in Clockwork Phoenix 4? Only those that are magical, imaginative, heart-wrenching, just plain bizarre, forward-looking, backward-looking, biological, romantic, hopeful, darkly funny and openly frightening. All the words that describe the best speculative fiction you’ve ever read apply. In fact, if this isn’t the epitome of speculative fiction, I don’t know what is. — Little Red Reviewer

Behind the Mask

release date: May 16, 2017
Behind the Mask
Behind the Mask is a multi-author collection with stories by award-winning authors Kelly Link, Cat Rambo, Carrie Vaughn, Seanan McGuire, Lavie Tidhar, Sarah Pinsker, Keith Rosson, Kate Marshall, Chris Large and others. It is partially a prose nod to the comic world--the bombast, the larger-than-life, the save-the-worlds and the calls-to-adventure. But it's also a spotlight on the more intimate side of the genre. The hopes and dreams of our cape-clad heroes. The regrets and longings of our cowled villains. That poignant, solitary view of the world that can only be experienced from behind the mask. The authors in this collection, both established and new, are all dexterous and wonderfully imaginative, each deserving of their own form-fitting uniforms and capes. Some of the stories pulse with social commentary, like Cat Rambo's whimsical and deft -Ms. Liberty Gets a Haircut- and Keith Rosson's haunting -Torch Songs.- Others twist the genre into strange and new territories, like Stuart Suffel's atmospheric -Birthright, - Kate Marhsall's moving -Destroy the City with Me Tonight, - and Adam Shannon's reality-bending -Over an Embattled City.- Some punch with heart and humor, like Matt Mikalatos's satisfying -The Beard of Truth- and Chris Large's adventurous -Salt City Blue, - while others punch with bite and grit, such as Michael Milne's evocative -Inheritance, - Aimee Ogden's poignant -As I Fall Asleep, - and Jennifer Pullen's heartfelt -Meeting Someone in the 22nd Century.- Some of the stories feature characters who might not be superheroes in the traditional sense, yet are heroic nonetheless, such as Sarah Pinsker's imaginative -The Smoke Means It's Working- and Stephanie Lai's majestic -The Fall of the Jade Sword.- Some shine a unique, captivating spotlight on supervillains, like Keith Frady's dramatic -Fool- and Carrie Vaughn's romantic -Origin Story.- Some are somber, ponderous works, where our heroes consider their impact on the world, like Lavie Tidhar's regret-tinged -Heroes- and Nathan Crowder's resonant -Madjack.- Others tread more light-hearted waters, with heroes adjusting to the sometimes-comical, sometimes-stressful life in the public eye, like Seanan McGuire's entertaining -Pedestal- and Patrick Flanagan's lively -Quintessential Justice.- And then there are the softer, quieter moments between heroes, as they navigate their extraordinary lives in their own unique ways, such as Ziggy Schutz's tender -Eggshells- and, of course, Kelly Link's captivating -Origin Story.-

Subversion

release date: Jan 01, 2011
Subversion
'Traitor' or 'revolutionary.' These labels are two sides of the same coin, just as 'hero' or 'villain' depends on the point of view of the person telling the story. These are obvious concepts when spelled out in clear cut settings. Because of this, how one goes about subverting the norm (as a traitor or revolutionary) is based on what the norm is. What is normal in one society can be, and often is, taboo in another society. This allows tales of subversion to be subtle, blatant, personal, communal, and endless in variation. - From the Foreword by Jennifer Brozek
