**before i get on with the review, let me just say that this was a hard book to review because it was an anthology of short stories and i didn’t know how to go about it. I am generally extremely picky when it comes to short stories for some reason. To come up with the score for this book i rated each story as i read and in the end tallied them all up and came up with the final score, which probably is not completely representative becau

Industrious dwarves, elven espionage, dragons and wondrous inventions feature, as well as a selection of thought provoking poetry. My personal favourites were Time by Windsong Levitch, and the series of Haiku’s by Michael Greenway, as well as the shorts from authors Kathryn Sullivan, CRS Bailey and Alexander S. Brown. I’m not usually a fan of short stories, as I often find they lack direction or conclusion. It usually means I either feel compelled to finish the book, or I simply put it down & ...more

It is rare for me to find an anthology that I have enjoyed every story. Herika R Raymer has done an amazing job in selecting the perfect stories to fit in this anthology.

Going into this anthology I did know a couple of the authors but was so excited to find several new to me authors that I fully intend to read anything by them I can get my hands on. Robert ...more

Clockwork Spells and Magical Bells is a collection of short stories based on "magic vs. machine" with an emphasis on fantastical creatures (in this case, elves and dwarves). While there were certainly stories I enjoyed more than others, I found that as a whole the book provided a diverse look into the steampunk world. With a rise in books in this genre, I've gained an appreciation for the variety that can exist within it. This book of stories provides just that.

There were some cases in which I w

Loved this book, it was perfect to distract me for a few minutes at the time without making me want to sit down and read the entire book right then and there.

Herika R. Raymer was born in 1974 and grew up consuming books, literally. Her father's collection of science fiction, reference volumes, and notebooks were all victim to her appetite. First by eating them, later by reading them. Her mother taught her the value of hard work and keeping focused while her father taught her more about the appreciation of literature and art than any school teacher; so ...more
