The Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog has just announced my latest editorial project with Navah Wolfe, The Mythic Dream.
I am unbelievably lucky to have worked on this with Navah, my fearless, talented, and kind co-editor. The Mythic Dream will be our last collaboration due to our increasingly busy schedules, so it feels a bit bittersweet announcing it. We got to work on three amazing anthologies together, and the response to each one has been nothing short of humbling. But there will be other times for retrospectives on all of that. For now, I am SO excited to share these incredible stories with all of you!
The spiritual sequel to our The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales, this features original retellings of myths from around the world. Like Starlit, it is very near and dear to both our hearts. Navah and I love old stories, and we love making them new for new generations. Here’s the cover copy:
These are dreams of classic myths, bold reimaginings of the stories we tell about gods and kings, heroes who shaped nations, the why and how of the world.
Journey with us to the fields of Elysium and the Midwest, through labyrinths and the space between stars. Witness the birth of computerized deities and beasts that own the night. Experience eternal life through curses and biochemistry.
Bringing together stories from the world over, eighteen critically acclaimed and award-winning authors reimagine myths of the past for the world of today, and tomorrow.
The book will feature these incredible authors:
Stephen Graham Jones
Carmen Maria Machado
Look for it August 27th, 2019.
