Mythic Resonance is out!

The Specusphere's long-awaited anthology, Mythic Resonance, is hot off the press and will be ready for purchase soon. You can buy hard copy at the great price of only $19.95, and an e-book version will be available within a few days.

Mythic Resonance contains a lovely line-up of stories and authors, including one, I'm proud to say, by Yours Truly (Satima). There are sad ones and funny ones: thought-provoking ones and some that are just for fun.

We selected fourteen stories from over 50 submissions. I hope our readers will agree that we have a nice blend of adaptations from myths, legends and fairy tales. Here's the final line-up:

The Salted Heart — N A Sulway
The Everywhere And The Always — Alan Baxter
Annabel and the Witch — Paul Freeman
Through these eyes I see — Donna Maree Hanson
A Tale of Publication — Les Zigomanis
La Belle Dame — Satima Flavell
Glorious Destiny — Steven Gepp
Meeting my Renaissance Man — Vicky Daddo
Wetlands — Jen White
Man’s Best Friend — Tom Williams
In Paradise, Trapped — Kelly Dillon
Holly and Iron — Nigel Read
Brothers — Sue Bursztynski

The anthology was edited by Stephen Thompson, with contributing editors Amanda Greenslade, Sue Hammond, Linda Stewart and me (Satima), together with associate editors Astrid Cooper and Jennie Kremmer. Amanda is also responsible for the beautiful cover, all that tricky design and layout stuff and the atmospheric book trailer, which you can watch here on YouTube.

If that whets your appetite, check out the story excerpts. I do hope you love them enough to buy a copy!
