This is just a quick note to let folks know how things stand in the house of Mythic Delirium.   First, submissions: as always, I have a ton of other projects going on; as a result, I’ve only this past week begun responding to submissions received for issues 1.4 and 2.1. Though I would have preferred to start reading a little bit quicker, this isn’t too far off my planned schedule. The reading window still has a month to go,

A year ago, during the Kickstarter campaign to create this magazine, I offered as a reward an omnibus collection of my poetry in ebook form. This week, what I’ve actually released is something better.   Hungry Constellations is my first poetry collection available in ebook format (and it is available in paperback too.)

Over at Apex Magazine, Charlotte Ashley’s “Clavis Aurea” column spotlights Virginia M. Mohlere‘s “Hold Back the Waters” from Mythic Delirium 1.1, at present only available to subscribers (ahem!).
