This Monday's story is Clockatrice by Tanith Lee. It's very exciting for me as an editor to be publishing a piece by one of my all-time favorite writers, and one of the people whose work helped introduce me to what fantasy could be. I started reading Lee with her Flat Earth series. first encountering Azhrarn in the pages of Night's Master. I must confess, I have saved the paperclips from the two subs I've seen from her, and intend to someday use them for the heart of my own clockwork Tanith Lee.
