Fascinating new post: Jane Yolen comments about the mythic arts, and we comment on her comment. You need to read it for that first bit.

Here's a thought-provoking new essay from Dr Richards on the aesthetics of narrative #poetry  : http://www.unsettlingwonder.com/2013/08/goblin-market-as-coal-mine-canary/ Well worth a read for all you poetic and literary-minded folks out there.

We're thrilled to announce the launch of our new line of mythic arts books--with a twist. The first title is Seven Ways to Prune a Grapefruit, a poetry collection by Johnny Wink. Strange, startling, often moving, it's offbeat and unexpected in a whole lot of ways. Cover artwork by Peter Herron and an introduction by Joshua Richards. We're accepting pre-orders for the limited edition hardback now--don't miss this one!
