The MYTHIC DELIRIUM anthology: cover reveal and table of contents

Mythic_Delirium_paperback_cover_frontOkay, so we haven’t quite kept this a secret. (How could we sit on a treasure this pretty? Seriously?)
Nonetheless, consider this the official cover reveal for the first Mythic Delirium paperback anthology. We’re proud to have Hugo Award winner Galen Dara on board as our cover artist for this first venture into not-quite-charted territory.
I add the caveat because obviously it’s not our first venture into paperback anthologies. Once upon the time there were the two MYTHIC anthologies (volume one, volume two) and of course there’s the entire Clockwork Phoenix series (the homepage for them now lives here.) In a way, this book is a return to what we tried in the MYTHIC series, this time with much more experience that we can bring to bear.
The creation of an omnibus anthology of the first four issues of Mythic Delirium magazine’s digital incarnation (collectively known as “Mythic Delirium Zero”) was the stretch goal of the Mythic Delirium Kickstarter. Rather than simply offering the exact same thing on paper that we’ve offered in ebook and web form, I hit upon the idea of letting Anita work her magic and rearrange the stories and poems for thematic flow, so readers really are getting an anthology rather than four zine issues bound together. That approach earned us a starred review in Publishers Weekly (more about that matter in a forthcoming post.)
Our plan is to release the book in time for the World Fantasy Convention in November. Here’s the complete table of contents:
