New featured poems at by Catherynne M. Valente and Serena Fusek

/ Friday, December 9th, 2011 / No Comments »

I’ve posted two new featured poems on the Mythic Delirium website. The first comes from New York Times bestseller (and to think, I knew her when, hee) Catherynne M. Valente, along with audio of her reading this challenging new piece. The poem appears in our new issue, #25 (click here to buy or subscribe.)

Over on her blog, Cat says these things about it:

The Melancholy of Mecha Girl is a philosophical confessional poem about anime and giant robots.


I am as proud of it as a short story.

The second poem, “The true poem” by my fellow Virginian, Serena Fusek, appeared in our previous issue, as did the accompanying illustrations by Paula Friedlander. The beautiful audio reading by Clarkesworld podcast director (and SFWA Interim Executive Director) Kate Baker is exclusive to our site, of course.

I hope you’ll check out both of these morsels. (Click here to do so.)

I note: I’ve been aware for a long time our website is pretty seriously outmoded, but we’ve gotten by. However, now that we’re going to start offering e-books (the new edition of Clockwork Phoenix being the first) it’s time for an upgrade. So these featured poems will be lasted presented in this format.

Though they won’t disappear — they’ll just be the first ones up at the new version of the site, so stay tuned.
