Issue 31 (2009)

MC #31 has some new authors and some who return. With us for the first time are Mary Johnson and William Wandless, each with a story from an invented mythology. Joel Zartman and Colin Young bring their pithy short poems, also for the first time. Randy Hoyt for the second time offers us a lens into the world of the Ramayana, while Ryder Miller comes for the third time, with a look at the hinge between reality and the hidden dimensions. Some faithful contributors are also returning: Joe Christopher, (by himself and with a new collaborator, Donald Hinkle) Dag Rossman, and David Sparenberg. Once more Tim Callahan generously applies his talents to the cover design and three other illustrations. Letters are always greatly appreciated in The Mythic Circle, especially constructive criticism to help these writers improve their craft and advance their careers. For this issue, however, our only commentary comes from an odd source. Several issues back, as some readers may remember, we published comments by the diabolic bureaucrat and literary critic Squidgeboodle. We haven’t heard from Squidgeboodle for a while, but apparently he is up to his old tricks. As before, I’m not certain how the drafted minutes of his committee meeting reached my laptop, but in the spirit of giving the devil his due, I print them here, trusting my wise readers to make all necessary allowances for the diabolic viewpoint expressed there.
