“Rich word choices and settings that blend speculative concepts with quotidian reality highlight this stellar anthology of prose and poetry from well-known editor Mike Allen (CLOCKWORK PHOENIX) and his wife and copublisher, Anita Allen ... This anthology is a winner from cover to cover.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
This new anthology from the creative team behind the critically-acclaimed CLOCKWORK PHOENIX series assembles beautiful poetry and strange prose from the first year of the digital journal MYTHIC DELIRIUM. Funded by Kickstarter, this international gathering of writers spans cultures and blurs genres, showcasing work that, in the words of co-editor Mike Allen, "makes our notoriously offbeat Clockwork Phoenix seem like a product of the straight and narrow."
