Issue 40 (2018)

In this issue The Mythic Circle welcome new authors. Mathew Block offers a take on spiritual struggles in the current millennium, while Gea Haff deals with a more aesthetic perspective on existential angst. Clinton Nix does something new with heroic encounters and metempsychosis. Mileva Anastasiadou offers a tale which shows that the trasition between the Zodiac ages of Pisces and Aquarius may not be as smooth as some Jungians have thought. Christopher J. Tuthill and Jude O Mahony also show myths invading our present in ways which, in prose or poetry, are always unsettling. Holly Day, Robert Field Tredray, and Marissa Glover explore the Mythopoeic tradition in varying tones ranging from cheerful to cryptic to somber.

Returning to our pages once again, Ryder W. Miller examines how culinary skills affect the war between the sexes. S. Dornan, as she explains, follows Mark Twain as he seeks more experience of the world, this time not as a gadfly but as a firefly. Joe Christopher, R. L. Boyer, and Gwenyth Hood also return with short poems.

Bethany Abrahamson provides our evocative cover. A quilting piece by Marion Snee Hood illustrates the poem in her memory by her daughter Gwenyth. A helpful cat posed, but anonymously, as the shadowy feline to get out of Holly Day’s “Carving,” on the back cover.
