“One of those rare long-term survivors of the small-press landscape . . . contributes mightily to the health of our genre.”
Assembled from the second year of the digital journal Mythic Delirium and recast in an artfully arranged anthology, this latest offering from editors Mike and Anita Allen will introduce you to harrowing deserts and vengeful waters, to quantum mythology and edible religion, to slipstream explorations of love and identity.
Publisher and editor Mike Allen writers in his introduction, “If you’re on a quest for the weird, lowercase, here is a book where you can find it. And likely The Weird as well.”

Within these stories -- set in alternative histories, far-flung futures and times just around the corner -- dinosaurs whimper and waste away or roar and rage. People can be dinosaurs, as can ideas, fictions and flesh. Knitted dinosaurs share space with ghostly, genetically engineered and even narcotic ones.
Teenagers must embrace their inner dinosaurs in order to find peace and belonging, a dying woman duels a God in a far future city that echoes aspects of our past, an abused wife accompanies her husband on a hunt for an ancient power and finds more than she could ever have imagined and a girl with wonderful magical powers stumbles across the bones of a giant long-dead lizard. And so much more!
Blend reality with fantasy. Mesh science fiction with mystery. Mix history with what should have been. They are all chimera.
A shadow tells a tale of schoolyard bullies. A long-vanished monster returns from the cold dark. Make-up makes up a life. Alchemy, Atlantis, and apocalypse. These 26 tales bring both chaos and closure to dark and elusively fantastic geographies.

What does it mean to break? How many ways can someone become pieces? An assembly of authors explain how the aurora can steal a soul, how curses can break a village and what it means to dissolve into nothing more than airy memories. Here there is an android frankensteined together for sex, a shattering of glass, a falling apart on the wings of mythological dreams, distress laid out in tarot and the exquisite isolation of diamond flesh. B is for Broken takes us deep into the varieties and horrific beauties of brokenness in stories as individual as their authors.
With works by Brittany Warman, Sara Cleto, Gary B. Phillips, Beth Cato, Cory Cone, Steve Bornstein, Pete Aldin, Lilah Wild and so many more, B is for Broken is the ideal companion to A is for Apocalypse. It fires the imagination and sighs into the heart at the same time.
For our fiction offerings, C.S. MacCath combines Norse mythology with quantum theory in “Sing the Crumbling City,” Jessy Randall's "Maybe a Witch Lives There" supplies a wicked homage to Shirley Jackson, and Adam Howe's "'Kid' Cooper & the Blackwood Ape-Man" provides a rollicking, bruising fusion of history and folklore set in the American South.
As for poetry, Jane Yolen returns to our pages with no less than three poems recasting fairy tales in new molds; Natalia Theodoridou gracefully encapsulates one of the most tragic of Greek tragedies; Wendy Rathbone paints a wistful portrait of a season; and Dominik Parisien shows how delightfully monstrous art can be.
Our striking cover art comes courtesy of Italian sequential artist Elena de' Grimani (her American debut.)
