NewMyths.com - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
We like to balance each quarterly issue between science fiction and fantasy, dark and light, serious and humorous, hard and soft science fiction, and longer and shorter works.
Our readers are not fixated on a single style or tone or genre, but prefer a
quality sample of the field. Think tapas or dim sum.
