A teaser Clockwork Phoenix 4 post

/ Saturday, January 12th, 2013 / 2 Comments »

Clockwork Phoenix 4I’ve selected all the stories for Clockwork Phoenix 4. All contracts have been sent, and payments have started going out. This is what the Kickstarter was all about — without all your generous pledges, I could not make this part happen.

There are 18 stories, the same number I had in the first volume of Clockwork Phoenix. However, at 87,000 words (not yet counting the yet-to-be written introduction or the “Pinions” section with author bios and story notes) this is easily the largest installment in the series.

I hope to follow up by Monday with much more detail, including the actual table of contents. I’ll be recording my first (and maybe even my second) “Tour of the Abattoir” column of the new year tomorrow with buddy Shalon Hurlbert, so I’ll need to squeeze it in around that, somehow.

But stay tuned. It’s coming.

    Wow ~ I’m too late. This sounds so exciting and I have so many speculative stories that I would’ve submitted. I hope you do #5 ~ there aren’t nearly enough anthos like this!

      I agree with you that they’re aren’t enough; that’s why I do them. As for #5, though, I think I need to see how #4 does first, hee.
