Top 20 most read stories and poems in (the second half of) 2016

January 4th, 2017 No Comments

So here’s a fun thing I realized I could do. Inspired by my colleagues over at Black Gate, where, in another geologic era, I was a quasi-occasional guest blogger, I’ve assembled a list of the most-read stories and poems on this website from the beginning of July through the end of December 2016. Why only half the year? I’ll try to keep it short and amusing. I’m not a luddite, but neither am I a technophile, so I don’t rush

BONE SWANS wins the World Fantasy Award!

November 3rd, 2016 No Comments

At the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, Ohio, this past weekend (Sunday, Oct. 30), Bone Swans by C.S.E. Cooney won the World Fantasy Award for best collection. Anita and I were there to see Claire Cooney make her acceptance speech, dedicating her win to her mentor, Gene Wolfe. It’s just about impossible for us to express how proud we are to be the publishers of Bone Swans, and what a stunning surprise it was when announcer Gordon Van Gelder read

My 2016 World Fantasy Convention schedule

October 24th, 2016 No Comments

Anita and I will be at the World Fantasy Convention this weekend, primarily to cheer on C.S.E. Cooney, whose book from our imprint, Bone Swans: Stories, is up for the World Fantasy Award for Best Collection against some very stiff competition. Our fingers are crossed regardless. Before Sunday’s ceremony, we’ll have plenty of time to hang out at the bar and chat — but I will be making a couple of “official programming” appearances, both of them on Friday. At

Readercon, World Fantasy, GeekMob, Guillermo del Toro

August 8th, 2016 No Comments

Last time I wrote an update, Anita and I were about to drive up to Readercon in Boston. A whole lot has happened since, some of it fun, most of it not fun at all, but for purposes of this update I’m sticking to the fun stuff.   Readercon itself was terrific for us. We held in essence a second launch reading and launch party for the Clockwork Phoenix 5 anthology. Rob Cameron, A.C. Wise, C.S.E. Cooney and Carlos Hernandez,

My schedule at Readercon

July 5th, 2016 No Comments

I’m pleased to share my final schedule for Readercon in Boston this weekend. Anita and I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.   We’ll also have copies of all our books with us (our big push will be for Clockwork Phoenix 5, and a little bit extra for The Spider Tapestries, but all the rest will be along, too), in case you want to get one in person and have it signed.   Friday July 08

Mythic Delirium invades Google Play

April 24th, 2016 No Comments

Thanks to a surprise opportunity, e-book editions of the Mythic Delirium Books anthologies and collections (and a number of my own books, too) are now available on Google Play, the Android equivalent of iBooks. One feature of Google Play that particularly impresses me: readers who buy a book can toggle back and forth between an EPUB edition and a PDF edition, thus having the choice of a standard e-book with flowing text and a facsimile of the print book available

February story and poems now live: Layton, Lindsann, Bishop

February 8th, 2016 No Comments

It’s a constant refrain here at Mythic Delirium Books right now: so much is happening that it’s a challenge to coherently chronicle it. Last week we enjoyed the unexpected but much deserved appearance of C.S.E. Cooney’s collection Bone Swans and novella “The Bone Swans of Amandale” on the 2015 Locus Recommended Reading List.   In the zine zone, we also released our featured story and featured poems for February, offering variations on hellish themes from the “pages” of the Jan.-March
