It’s so nice to announce that poems I have wanted to show people are going to be available!
First, in the upcoming issue of Bete Noire, my poem “I Am The Dead Twin” will be appearing. It is about as cheerful as it sounds, but I still really like it.
I also have sold a poem to inkscrawl. I don’t know when it will be appearing yet, but the current issue is amazing– “Zipcar in Heaven” “Sarcophagus” are the two I’ve really adored, but I have been savoring the magazine, and reading it slowly.
I also have acquired a day-job, which was much needed. I’m hoping to get good material while waiting tables, in a neat little Tea Room in the only real extant mansion of Claremore history.
Keith West of Adventures Fantastic wrote some very kind things about the latest issue of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly, including about the stories by my fellow Viable Paradise alumni, Seamus Bayne and Spencer Ellsworth.
And about my poem. So kind it makes me blush. And then go frolicking out to tell my mom in the kitchen…
Heroic Fantasy Quarterly Scores a Homerun
I am thinking about how to add some glitz here, and decided maybe I could post some poems that have been published but are no longer under contract, for those who wish to read but didn’t get the issues of whatever magazine it is they went out in.
To start, here’s a humorous sketch that went up in Chizine’s Mega-Issue in March 2011
My Skull, The Garage
This month’s issue of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly includes a poem by yours truly!
Burying the Ploughshare
This poem, uh, borrowed *deeply* from the Oklahoman landscape as I’m familiar with it, and since Heroic Fantasy Quarterly has two editors from OK, my theory is that they recognized it, too.
