A bold and beautiful anthology
Reviewed in the United States on September 26, 2019
In this anthology, Parisien and Wolfe wanted writers to use and subvert the old tales and engage with the classic narratives "by recontextualizing them, giving them new perspectives, new worlds to inhabit”. The stories in The Mythic Dream achieve that goal in spectacular fashion. This is a vivid, evocative, often visceral, collection of fiction by authors who have unique, bold, and original takes on the source material, spanning the genres from horror to science fiction and fantasy.
