  • On Tor.com’s Short Fiction Spotlight, Brit Mandelo reviewed Clockwork Phoenix 4 with this comment about “The History of Soul 2065”: “…it benefits greatly from that straight-forwardness, because it still works to really hit home on the emotional level by the end.

  • Lois Tilton reviewed Clockwork Phoenix 4 in Locus Online; of “The History of Soul 2065” she writes: “A simple, heartwarming story of family and love.”

The story is a compelling and original triumph.”
