Anita and I want to extend our proud congratulations to Swapna Kishore, whose short story “The Absence of Words” from our January-March 2015 issue is going to be reprinted in Paula Guran’s The Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror: 2016, forthcoming from Prime Books.
We’re really happy for Swapna, and pleased that her haunting story will get a chance to reach a new audience.
We’re also delighted for reasons of enlightened self-interest. The Clockwork Phoenix books have had a number of stories reprinted in Best Of anthologies and nominated for awards. The old saddle-stapled incarnation of Mythic Delirium, i.e. Mythic Delirium Mark I, was the first home to five Rhysling Award-winning poems, all of which were reprinted in the Nebula Awards Showcase series. It’s thrilling to have this additional proof that Mythic Delirium Mark II is right in line with the quality and consistency of its predecessors. (And it was a great excuse for yet another celebration!)
