The November featured content from Mythic Delirium 1.2 is live on our site, with a new story and two new poems offered free to all:   • Sonya Taaffe reveals the truth about William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe in the wry “Anonymity.” Her story has already drawn praise from reviewer Charlotte Ashley in her newest “Clavis Aurea” column at Apex Magazine:   The premises is cute, but the execution is clever: in elaborate, Elizabethan-influenced English, our contemporary reality is barely
