  • About The World of Myth Magazine.



  • Welcome to the 45th issue of The World of Myth.

    Season’s greetings from The World of Myth staff. To kick things off in a celebratory manner, let’s begin by reminding readers that our TWoM Anthology winners for November 2010 are Todd Gordon and Cathy Hamm.  These winners need only to write in to me (SteveBolin@DarkMythProductions.com) from their qualifying e-mail address and claim their prize before January 15, 2011.  Please include a valid, U.S. Mailing address, with your claim so that we can ship your prize.

    Remember, to be eligible for our drawing, you simply need to become a member by subscribing to our magazine. Not only is membership free, but names and e-mail addresses are never sold or targeted for junk e-mail, so you can subscribe with confidence. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to stop by the Membership Box, located on the bottom left-hand-side of this page, and subscribe now.

    Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the entertainment we have lined up for you in this 45th issue.

    The Horror section sees the return of fan favorite, Kevin Adams. In his new story, Control , Kevin gives us a twisted glimpse into the mind of an unusual killer with an agenda.

    In Science Fiction, T.G. Browning offers a thought provoking story involving a different type of invasion in The Conquest of Earth .

    Fantasy showcases Elise Skidmore’s interesting twist on vampires in Edmund’s Story .

    Our Action/Adventure section follows R.J. Newlyn through a series of short-shorts, collectively entitled Wyrm .

    Humor is up to its usual antics as Robin Martinez pens Last Will and Testament , a story of one man who spoke his mind just one last time. I offer The Michelle Tale as an illustration of high school sibling high jinks.

    Our poetry department welcomes the return of Jezzy Wolfe writing Midnight Movie Massacre in haiku while Kevin Magnus works through the night in The Long Wait .

    The art section delivers three new selections for your viewing pleasure. Rebecca Lofgren peeks under the water with Mergirl , Jessie Lindsay shows us a glimpse of The Great Gateway and Mauricio Roldan introduces us to his vision of Moses .

    Our columnists are as busy as ever during this holiday season. Artist Whitney Mattila dares to brave the Myth Master for his exclusive Interview column; will she escape his clutches alive? When you’re finished there, hang out with Reaper Rick for a while in the Movie Reviews column as he rates The Last Airbender, Robin Hood and others.

    Madeline Usher pens her book reviews column while hiding from her maniacal brother in the library. Stay with her as she recounts her read of The Redemption of Holly Dobson by C. Lynn Barton and her experience of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Afterwards, be sure to drop by the aptly renamed Video Game Retrospective and watch A Grue make TWoM history with the magazine’s very first video column as he fondly recalls Apogee’s BioMenace .

    David Montoya writes a “State of the Company” address in this month’s commentary. This is a must read section for everyone who’s interested in what’s happening with Dark Myth Production Studios.

    Last, but not least, the winners for October 2010, were decided by reader votes, wherein an A = 5 points, a B = 4 points, etc. The winners are as follows: Best Poem – Theresa Newbill; Best Artwork – Whitney Mattila; Best Story – T.G. Browning. The Member of the Month for October 2010 is T.G. Browning who had the highest overall points. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who voted.

    I hope everyone enjoys the final issue of 2010. Everyone on TWoM staff joins me in wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. May you find peace and prosperity during this holiday season.

    Hey TJ,

    Thanks--Glad you enjoyed the story, and Yes, I am feeling a bit better. At least well enough to be writing again, so I suppose that is an improvement.

    Best, Terry
