Rites of spring: MYTHIC DELIRIUM marks 2 years in digital format
Now available via subscription and on Amazon/Weightless, with April featured content live on our site:
Our latest issue caps off the first two years of Mythic Delirium as a digital ’zine with a sampling of strange horror, stranger science fiction and weird alternate history.
For our fiction offerings, C.S. MacCath combines Norse mythology with quantum theory in “Sing the Crumbling City,” Jessy Randall’s “Maybe a Witch Lives There” supplies a wicked homage to Shirley Jackson, and Adam Howe’s “‘Kid’ Cooper & the Blackwood Ape-Man” provides a rollicking, bruising fusion of history and folklore set in the American South.
As for poetry, Jane Yolen returns to our pages with no less than three poems recasting fairy tales in new molds; Natalia Theodoridou gracefully encapsulates one of the most tragic of Greek tragedies; Wendy Rathbone paints a wistful portrait of a different season; and Dominik Parisien shows how delightfully monstrous art can be.
Our striking cover art comes courtesy of Italian sequential artist Elena de’ Grimani (her American debut.)
