My latest anthology with Navah Wolfe, The Mythic Dream, came out September 3rd and while I posted about it on social media I didn’t get a chance to make a post here. So.
THE MYTHIC DREAM IS OUT IN THE WORLD!
This is my third and final collaboration with the amazing Navah Wolfe, and we are unbelievably proud of this book. It’s been an incredible journey working together on these anthologies, and it’s changed my life.
This is the first of our anthologies to get a simultaneous audiobook release, and we’re very excited for that! The narrator is Samantha Desz.
We’ve already received some early, terrific reviews. Publishers Weekly wrote that we “have compiled an impressively varied compendium of myth reimaginings by numerous well-known speculative fiction writers” and that “This eclectic, often subversive collection will appeal to fairy tale fans who want something new and different.”
Martin Cahill also gave the book a glowing review on Tor.com, delcaring “The Mythic Dream is a triumph of an anthology.” His review absolute GOT what we wanted to do with the anthology, and the feeling that brings is amazing.
A few days after the release we also had a post about the book on John Scalzi’s The Big Idea discussing retellings and the ways this connects to our previous anthologies.
