All this week: 99¢ e-book special on THE HISTORY OF SOUL 2065 by Barbara Krasnoff

/ Monday, July 5th, 2021 / No Comments »

It’s been two years since Mythic Delirium Books brought out Barbara Krasnoff’s story collection and mosaic novel The History of Soul 2065, a haunting, stunningly beautiful, genre-blending and genre-defying work of art.

These 20 tales that depict snapshots in the lives of various members of two Jewish families across multiple generations. Though all of these characters will have otherworldly encounters, some supernatural, some science fictional, most of them will never meet, and they will never know how their destinies are entangled, but when the last story clicks into place, the result, as Publishers Weekly put it in a starred review, adds up to “far more than the sum of its parts.”

A great friend to Mythic Delirium Books, Andrea Johnson a.k.a. The Little Red Reviewer, put it in a way that I adore and will coyly share in hopes of further whetting your appetite:

My first thought about this book was “what’s up with that title? It makes no sense!” … My last thought when I was finishing the book was “oh, now I get it! The title makes sense now!”, and then a few pages later “oh. Now I really get it. Oh my.”

And to further whet your appetite, the Nebula Award-nominated short story “Sabbath Wine,” first published in our anthology Clockwork Phoenix 5 and a key piece in the generational portrait Krasnoff’s binds together, can be read for free right here!
