As of this morning, all 12 of the original stories we published in the digital pages of Mythic Delirium in 2014 are free to read online. This seems the best and fairest time for our official awards eligibility post, as award consideration season is just getting underway.   All of these works are short stories by the standard of just about every award out there. Only Ken Schneyer’s story, I think, could be categorized as science fiction; all the rest

We’re pleased to present our featured content for December, the final story and pair of poems from Mythic Delirium 1.2 and the last of our regular features for 2014.

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

I’m so thrilled to announce that the first ever Mythic Delirium trade paperback anthology, with its beautiful cover from Galen Dara, is available, if not quite everywhere yet, then enough places that there’s certainly no point in keeping it a secret! (It’s basically gone live a month earlier than planned, which we had to do to have copies available for launch at the World Fantasy Convention in D.C.) I am so proud of this book and all it represents —

The newest issue of Mythic Delirium is absolutely and completely alive, stepping out from behind the Veil as Halloween approaches…   This is how I tried to explain this “eclectic even by our standards” issue in my editorial:   We’re bringing 2014 to a close with a cornucopia of offerings that don’t have a theme, per se, unless a cornucopia full of diverse offerings can itself be a theme.   To mix together some metaphors, within this patchwork quilt you’ll

Imaginative ideas abound, include
