An all-new anthology of eighteen classic myth retellings featuring an all-star lineup of award-winning and critically acclaimed writers.

Madeleine L'Engle once said, "When we lose our myths we lose our place in the universe." The Mythic Dream gathers together eighteen stories that reclaim the myths that shaped our collective past, and use them to explore our present and future. From Hades and Persephone to Kali, from Loki to Inanna, this anthology explores retellings of myths across cultures and civilizations.

Featuring award-winning and critically acclaimed writers such as Seanan McGuire, Naomi Novik, Rebecca Roanhorse, JY Yang, Alyssa Wong, Indrapramit Das, Carlos Hernandez, Sarah Gailey, Ann Leckie, John Chu, Urusla Vernon, Carmen Maria Machado, Stephen Graham Jones, Arkady Martine, Amal El-Mohtar, Jeffrey Ford, and more, The Mythic Dream is sure to become a new classic.

Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Carroll

"Lots of strange and wonderful goings-on in The Starlit Wood. Fairy tales you thought you’d left behind in childhood are back in some very poignant, sly and original versions that will touch the Wow in most readers."

on THE STARLIT WOOD The Press Herald

"Clever, touching, frightening, funny and frequently surprising, The Starlit Wood shines with magical possibility."

on THE STARLIT WOOD Locus Magazine

"The Starlit Wood, edited by Dominik Parisien & Navah Wolfe is one of the best fantasy compilations of the year."

Jeff VanderMeer

A classy, smart, and entertaining volume of stories put together with consummate care—and featuring the best and most exciting fantasy writers working in the field today.

Jonathan Strahan

"The best original fantasy anthology of the year."


"The table of contents alone reads like a who's who of fantasy authors...Highly recommended."


"This anthology is consistent throughout, with well-crafted writing and a tantalizing taste of each author’s unique journey into reimagining classic fairy tales for a new audience."


"The stories range from hilarious to spine-tingling, and each one has its own enchanting qualities...This is a cinematic and well-paced collection and will please both science-fiction and fantasy readers with its variety. Team Robot or Team Fairy? Definitely both."

on ROBOTS VS FAIRIES Chicago Tribune

The all-original stories collected here provide a lively cross-section of current science-fiction and fantasy writers... It's a cliche to say there's something for everyone here, but in this surprisingly eclectic anthology there probably is.

on ROBOTS VS FAIRIES The Washington Post

"Robots vs Fairies is the creature feature you didn’t know you wanted.

Terri Windling

"The modern revival of fairy tale fiction for adults began in the 20th century (with the stories of Angela Carter and Tanith Lee), and The Starlit Wood is proof that the revival is still going strong. Editors Parisien and Wolfe have brought a wide range of writers together to blaze new trails through the dark of the woods. Whether you're passionate about fairy tales, like I am, or haven't read them since childhood, I recommend this excellent anthology. I simply loved it."
