New Myths is planning to publish our second Best of New Myths Anthology in 2019. Volume 2, TWILIGHT WORLDS, will be a collection of science fiction and fantasy stories and poems chronicling the end of an age or the dawn of a new.

We will be searching through our archives for our favorite end-times or new beginnings stories and poems to reprint in TWILIGHT WORLDS.

In addition, we will consider new submissions inspired by this theme sent to us during our January and February reading period. Those selected for our March and June issues will be voted on by you, our readers, for two Reader’s Choice awards and will be featured in our anthology.
