2) Mythic Delirium Re-Boot
Mike Allen, running on the heels of the energy generated by the release of the fourth installment of Clockwork Phoenix, is thick into a Kickstarter now to continue funding for his 15 year plus running magazine, Mythic Delirium. The magazine, which has for a decade and a half, been printed and mailed, is moving into the digital frontier.
He sent me these paragraphs to share with you:
“The first quarterly issue of the new Mythic Delirium, Issue 0.1, is ready. You can get it by backing the Kickstarter for Mythic Delirium or by ordering a subscription through the Mythic Delirium website.
“It’s being sold as an e-zine in PDF, EPUB and MOBI format. In two weeks, if all goes well, the upgraded version of the Mythic Delirium will go live, and I’ll feature one story (“The Wives of Paris” by Marie Brennan) and two poems (“Ahalya: Deliverance” by Karthika Nair and “Cuneiform Toast” by Sonya Taaffe) from the new issue. I’ll repeat this pattern each month until the full issue is posted — but if you don’t want to wait 3 months to read the whole thing, subscribing is the way to go, and that gives me the funds to publish more issues.”
Why subscribe to a poetry magazine? scoff! Even a dudderhead like me enjoys the poetry. Additionally, the re-boot includes fiction! A bit of insider info: take time to read the Ken Liu story in issue 0.1
Also, you might like Mike’s sense of humor, here.
3) and Black Fire Concerto will be released soon.
This book I’ve just been dying over, and I’m ecstatic to see that it will finally go to print. Why am I so excited to tell you about this book? Ok. Let’s put it this way. If you enjoyed reading any one of the four volumes of Clockwork Phoenix, imagine its editor sitting down to tell you a story… yeah, that
Stay tuned. I’ll squee at you when it goes live.
