Clockwork Phoenix 2: More Tales of Beauty and Strangeness is a stronger collection than was Clockwork Phoenix 1, which is good news for those who love original short fiction anthologies. A few of the stories included are very strong indeed, and the weaker stories are stronger than many you'll find in an original anthology. From official release/information:
From publicity material: CLOCKWORK PHOENIX 2 is a home for stories that sidestep expectations in beautiful and unsettling ways, that surprise with their settings and startle with the ways they cross genre boundaries, that aren't afraid to experiment with storytelling techniques.
