Mythic Delirium stories: Awards eligibility post

December 1st, 2014 No Comments

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

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

October 14th, 2014 No Comments

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 —

Landis revisits the myth of “Orpheus” to tell a harsh truth; • Gwynne Garfinkle draws whimsy and sorrow from old monster movies in “It’s a

Praise for our story from Virginia M. Mohlere in MYTHIC DELIRIUM 1.1

July 22nd, 2014 No Comments

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!). Charlotte writes:   The strength of this story is in the world building. St. Bran’s is Annabeth’s home, a place real enough that it might be right outside your door, but where everyday life is conducted with a little mystery – a little magic. … With a great mix of epic-scale powers
