A new Mythic Delirium is coming (to a mailbox near you)

/ Sunday, March 17th, 2013 / No Comments »

Last week I announced that Mythic Delirium is going to undergo a big change. More about that in just a bit.

This week I get to announce that the newest issue of Mythic Delirium is almost here (and we’re on time for once.) Here are the issues-to-be, collated and ready to be saddle-stapled.

Here’s a straight-on look at Tim Mullins’ tongue-in-cheek tentacular cover for this Winter Thaw issue.


And here’s the very serious table of contents.

  • Editorial: Myths and Delusions
  • The Theatre Golems by Dominik Parisien
  • Mice by Beth Cato
  • The Nostalgia of Roads by Alexandra Seidel
  • Wheels by Adele Gardner
  • The Motor Prayer by Donald Raymond
  • The Princess Becomes a Prophet by Jeannine Hall Gailey
  • Gleaming by Mari Ness
  • The Beast by Rachel Manija Brown
  • skin by Lynn Hardaker
  • Circe in Manhattan by Wendy Howe
  • Persephone Set Free by Sofia Samatar
  • Rare Annie by Caitlyn Paxson
  • How to Bring Your Dead Lover Back by KL Pereira
  • Día de los Muertos by F.J. Bergmann
  • The Green Green Rain by Neile Graham
  • Doomcall by Alistair Rennie
  • The Ceremony of Innocence by Sonya Taaffe
  • Maud Gonne, After by Alicia Cole
  • The Serpent Explains the Nature of Tricksters to His Wife by Ruthanna Emrys
  • The Last Siren by Andrew Gilstrap
  • Revising Horror (The Wrong Mouth) by David Sandner


If you don’t want to miss it — and you don’t — you oughtta subscribe. Now, as I’m mentioned before, the print edition of Mythic Delirium has an end date; the final print issue will be Issue 30, due out in Spring 2014. If you get a 2-issue subscription (1-year) that doesn’t really matter. If you get a 4-issue subscription, though, you’re going past that end date. In that case I’ll be offering the same thing I’ve offering subscribers now: an available back issue of their choice, or a partial subscription to the forthcoming electronic edition.

So there’s nothing at all to lose if you subscribe. Just in case you were wondering.

And finally: There’s a new Featured Poem up on the site: Dan Campbell’s “Triptych: an Offering of Fruit”, from Issue 26, with a spectacular illustration from Paula Friedlander.


It’s been over a year since I’ve posted a new Featured Poem. I apologize for that. I had originally hoped that the new version of the website would be up and running by now, but I ain’t managed it. It has to be up by July, when the new e-version of Mythic Delirium launches. Until then, I hope you enjoy what will certainly be the last of the Featured Poems in the old format.
