C.M. Simpson edited the description of On a Ship Called Mythicus Saturday, July 28, 2012.
On a Ship Called Mythicus is a short story about the starship Mythicus, which is crewed by creatures of myth and legend, fairytale and urban lore. In this short episode, it and its crew pursue a space pirate until a small team must continue the pursuit on planet. With its firestarter captain and a defense system that takes its nomenclature too literally, this ship is one of a kind, a fact the rest of human space should be grateful for. This story is 5,188 words long and is included in the fourth of The Simpson Anthologies - An Anthology of Worlds, released in mid-September 2012.
