    y separately published work icon Clockwork Phoenix : Tales of Beauty and Strangeness Mike Allen (editor), Winnetka : Norilana Books , 2008 Z1549770 2008 anthology short story fantasy

    In this, the first of an annual anthology series of fantastic literature, author and editor Mike Allen has compiled nineteen short stories that flow cleverly and seamlessly from one inspiration to another. Some sidestep expectations in both beautiful and unsettling ways, other surprise with their settings and startle with the manner in which they cross genre boundaries, while others aren't afraid to experiment with storytelling techniques. Whether it's a touch of literary erudition, playful whimsy, extravagant style, or philosophical speculation and insight, the reader will be led into unfamiliar territory, there to find shock and delight.
