The April-May-June 2016 issue of Mythic Delirium celebrates spring with three stories of fey strangeness from three writers new to the pages of our magazine. Roshani Chokshi reveals the fate of those who seek the fox feast, Amy Aderman offers a bright take on an inescapable curse, and Alisa Alering (an alumna of Clockwork Phoenix 4) spins an ekphrastic tale of preternatural sisters.
Our poems this time come from Theodora Goss, Virginia M. Mohlere, Sandi Leibowitz, Carina Bissett, Danial Ausema, and A.J. Odasso, with meditations on the perilous magic inherent in bears, swans, sharks, and other animal forms, and explorations of aerial biology and genetic identity.
Our evocative cover photograph comes from Gary Every, making his debut as a cover artist for us after many appearances as a poet over our 16-year history.
We hope you enjoy this otherworldly spring bloom.
