Mythic Delirium 4.2

Subscribe to Mythic Delirium | View All Issues

Our autumn issue is here, full of work that we suspect you’ll find strangely uplifting — in the case of at least one story, literally so. We offer this new issue of Mythic Delirium in the spirit of sharing the fun we have as science fiction publishers.

James Van Pelt joins us for the first time with “The Elevator Illimitable,” a story that demonstrates the range of adventures one can have while standing in the same spot day after day. Daniel Ausema, who first appeared in our pages with poetry, contributes the surreal epistolary tale “The Desert Cure.” Premee Mohamed, another newcomer to our digital pages, provides a triumphant sports story with a preternatural twist in “The Water and the World.”

Our poetry this time around comes from Alix Bosley, Maura McHugh, David C. Kopaska-Merkel, Mary Soon Lee, Virginia M. Mohlere, and Trent Walters, covering distractions of the heart, learning to breathe water, a drowned ship, the mysteries of horses and trees, and the wisdom of heeding omens.

Our wonderful cover art, “Immaculate Atom Heart,” comes from Lasse Paldanius, an artist we found through the Worldcon 75 art show in Helsinki.
