“Rich word choices and settings that blend speculative concepts with quotidian reality highlight this stellar anthology of prose and poetry.”
“One of those rare long-term survivors of the small-press landscape…contributes mightily to the health of our genre.”
Assembled from the second year of the digital journal Mythic Delirium and recast in an artfully arranged anthology, this latest offering from editors Mike and Anita Allen will introduce you to harrowing deserts and vengeful waters, to quantum mythology and edible religion, to slipstream explorations of love and identity.
Publisher and editor Mike Allen writers in his introduction, “If you’re on a quest for the weird, lowercase, here is a book where you can find it. And likely The Weird as well.”
