[MYTHIC DELIRIUM NEWS] LIKE SMOKE, LIKE LIGHT by Yukimi Ogawa: cover reveal and pre-order announcement!

/ Tuesday, April 4th, 2023 / No Comments »

As we begin the fourth month of Mythic Delirium’s 25th anniversary year, I’m thrilled to share that the third of the three new books promised for this occasion is now available for pre-order: Like Smoke, Like Light, the debut collection of short fiction by Yukimi Ogawa.

I’m also thrilled to once again be working with paper artist Paula Arwen Owen, who has been a part of our extended family since the days when Mythic Delirium was a biannual poetry zine and a sister publication to Weird Tales. Beyond these brilliant covers and deft reflections of Ogawa’s blurring of genre boundaries, this art will reward those who can heft the book in their hands and savor every hidden detail.

“Her work is unexpected, often horrific, and always enthralling. Weaving Japanese folklore in with the new, the weird, and science fiction horror elements, Ogawa’s body of work is prolific and evergreen.”

The book official comes out June 20, but you can purchase it now — any links shared here that are not active yet soon will be.
