i'm surprised i got away with it as well as i seem to have done.
and yeah, its totally playing with the lovecraft ideas, mainly from the filtered point of influence. mixed with various more "traditional" science fiction references to see what i ended up with.
Keep Things Strange
I am finding the "issue" concept of Mythaxis Magazine rather constricting. We are therefore reformatting the way we index and access the stories.
Also, the forum is completely static.
Meanwhile, it's business as usual. More news on the new format later.
A few new stories will be available soon.
Please, all you imaginative people, more stories, more stories!
Well, Issue 6 of Mythaxis has proved very reluctant to come out, and I've decided to retain both the issue concept and the blogged index.
So, find Mythaxis here.
And find the Mythaxis blog, here.
The forum, one of the least active forums (fora?) in the history of forums, succumbed to a swamping from some morons advertising a poker gaming site. It was, moreover, so packed with all that crap that it blew my filestore quota on the ISP. It would have been so hard to revive that I ditched it. But there's always comments on the blog if you want to say something.

That's excellent, Gil. It is awesome to have an index of stories, but it is also cool to keep the issue format too. I'm glad to contribute when I can.
You can't take the sky from me.
Much midnight oil burned as I try to allocate time to edit Mythaxis magazine. There'd be more issues if I had more time.
However, announcing Issue 7 of Mythaxis Magazine - the acceptable face of fantasy and sf webzines, lacking references to Star Wars, Star Trek and quasi-Tolkien.
Containing stories by at least two illustrious NGBers. And, guys, plenty of time to get ready for issue 8.
Please also feel free to check out Mythaxis's companion blog. A recent review of William Gibson's "Zero History" is on there, too.
It now appears that some submissions to the original Submissions address on the website seem to have disappeared into the internet black hole.
There’s a new address for submissions to Mythaxis magazine – email@example.com
The old one – firstname.lastname@example.org doesn’t seem to work for everyone.
My advice: Send your submissions to both!
Mythaxis continues to expand its readership without resort to cheap tricks and vampire movie reviews. We do not publish to a deadline, and can afford to wait until the right stories come along, which they have done in this issue once again.
Latest issue – issue 8 of Mythaxis Magazine.
In particular, Les Sklaroff, lifelong writer of very short fiction, has supplied us with two unlikely tales, “Conspiracy Theory” and “Spawn” and he promises more delights in our next issue.
Martin Clark unleashes another excellent story – “The Great Divide” – a thriller within a fantasy within a mystery.
This issue’s featured science fiction author of old is Lester Linesmith. There is an ‘original’ story from Linesmith together with an incisive biography of this pillar of the pulp era by Liam Baldwin. Liam’s movie blog was recently highlighted by BBC Radio 4′s Film programme. (He specialises in what you might call B-movies, or C-movies, if there were such a category).
“The Prophets Speak”, from Andrew Critchley, carries a clever idea to an ingenious extreme.
The chilling “Outpatients”, from Jonathan Joseph, completes this issue. You will not readily forget the pictures he leaves in your minds.
And may I remind aspiring writers to submit short stories for the next edition. See the magazine for submission advice. We had some problems with e-mail last year (due to a casino hack collapsing our website), so if you don't get an acknowledgement of your submission, I didn't get it. I can be reliably contacted via PM on this forum.
I seem to have failed to report the release of issue 9 of Mythaxis Magazine. In the meantime, I am preparing for issue 10 and would be interested in short stories from aspiring writers.
See Mythaxis Magazine for the kind of material we like.

I even have a story in Issue 9. And there are some really other cool stories in there as well. I look forward to the next Issue.
You can't take the sky from me.
The December 2011 Mythaxis is out today.
With this issue, its tenth, Mythaxis has
moved into double figures. And a fine edition it is, too.
We have another great story, a haunting one at that, from Les Sklaroff.
Martin Clark contributes a sequel – “All Avenues Closed” to the story he
gave us in issue 9 – “Let Every Voice be Still”.
Matthew Kirshenblatt delivers an atmospheric little story based on a
Tom Davies contributes a weird little nightmare.
My own modest effort about an unusual NIMBY situation now seems rather
bland in comparison to the fevered imaginations of our other authors.
The issue is rounded off with two unconnected and separately contributed
stories of personal development from Andrew Leon Hudson and Jonathan
Joseph. When you read them you will understand why I felt compelled to
head them with fragments from Hieronymous Bosch.
Somewhere along the line, I lost the ability to log into the NGB, and readers may have assumed that Mythaxis had stopped. Far from it. We are now at issue 14, available from Mythaxis.
Submissions for issue 15 are invited.
Mythaxis now offers a book prize to any author featured in the magazine.
Having failed once again to restore my persona on the NGB, I now appear as the same person to advertise issue 16 of the Mythaxis webzine.
Submissions for issue 17 are invited. Apply
