Press Release

MYTHOLOG, the quarterly electronic literary journal that looks for myth in all kinds of stories, has just completed (with it's Autumn 2007 issue) it's fifth and final publication year. Having published 20 quarterly issues with some 200 stories and more than 60 covers and illustrations, Editor-in-Chief Asher Black has decided to call it quits to work on his own fiction. "We've had a fantastic run and our finale is awesome. We're not closing shop, we're just satisfied with what we've got, and aren't making more issues." Asher said. "The current and back issues of the magazine are still up for your enjoyment online, and they'll remain available indefinitely. We've achieved our mission, created a publication of note, and put out a plethora of amazing writing and artwork. It might be a cliche, but this isn't the end, it's a new beginning for our staff and, for MYTHOLOG, it's the exciting denouement." All issues of MYTHOLOG can be found, read, and enjoyed at www.mytholog.com

Spring Issue in Progress

Most of the staff took a vacation for the Winter issue, and we dedicated it to staff pieces and the Retro Awards. After four years, for some of us, we all needed a break. We have a big pile of Spring submissions we're going through, now. It looks to be another amazing issue. Jan 21 2007

Forums

We elected to close the Forums. We liked the idea of having twin purposes for MYTHOLOG - a magazine and a community - but, frankly, it was going to be too much of a time commitment to moderate, keep up with spam postings, and ultimately help create a community atmosphere in the forums. In their place, we opened the Newsroom, and will be adding a simple single forum here soon. Dec 25, 2006

Autumn Issue in Progress

We're working on this now. Have to disposition four pieces that remain (we should have the responses to you, if you're waiting, soon). And we're editing the ones accepted so far. It looks to be huge. :) Wait til you see the new cover!
