Issue 37 (2015)

In this issue, we welcome some new writers with a variety of tastes and techniques. In fiction, C. F. Cooper and Kevan Bowkett debut with excerpts from their respective invented mythologies. In poetry, Chelsi Robichaud and Adam Massimiano offer new interpretations of the traditional “Leda” and “Undine” myths, while Kevan Bowkett gives us a different view of Saturn, monarch of the Golden Age. Joseph Murphy also provides three poems exploring the life and vision of a shaman. Among illustrators Raquel Finol offers a striking illustration of Boyer’s poem, “I am a Witch.” In all categories, we also welcome back some previous authors. In fiction, William Wandless, who published “The Third Mercy” in MC31 (2009), is back with magic (or is it?) in a contemporary setting. October Williams, whose previous contributions were three poems published MC32 (2010), is now back with a short story, not without poetic adornment. Ryder Miller, who explored the relationship between modern life and virtual adventures in MC36 (2014), has moved on to “Laser Cell Phones” and the exploration of Mars. In poetry, Nicolo Santilli, author of “On a Sea Wind,” MC36 (2014), presents more poetic vignettes of the life of Saliessen, the bard of that series, and David Sparenberg, whose poems evoking the mythic qualities of nature, have appeared in the last five issues, offers us “The Wild God” for this one. L. C. Atencio once more provides a cover and three illustrations. He also offers his invaluable help as associate editor, without which, very likely, this issue would not be appearing.
