A new issue of inkscrawl is up. This is one of my favorite little zines, largely because of its targeted focus: short little poems (under ten lines each) all on a specific theme.
This issue includes my little poem a note found beneath a moonstone, as well as work by Sonya Taaffe, Beth Longford, Alexa Seidel, M. Mack, J.C. Runolfson, Sara Norja, and others.
And another little story from me just popped up at Daily Science Fiction today: The Dollmaker’s Rage. It’s a story about, well, a Dollmaker, and her Rage.
I really need to learn how to write better titles. In the meantime, enjoy!
My latest short story, Inhabiting Your Skin, just popped up at Apex Magazine, along with an interview with me, where I talk about some of the stories that I’ve written, and admit that I’m still having problems programming the microwave oven. What can I say? It’s a rather terrifying oven.
Two poems from me today:
The first, over at Tor.com as part of their celebration of National Poetry Month, and as further proof of my obsession with dragons, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Dragon.
The second, buried down in the webpage for Eye of the Telescope, a little poem, The Binding.
Ignore the date. Mostly. The following announcements are real. Mostly:
1. Stone Telling has launched its joke issue, which includes three limericks by me. (And yes, one of those includes dinoflagellates because, well, dinoflagellates.) If the thought of limericks makes you cringe, good news: the issue also includes a considerably better villanelle by David Sklar which is definitely worth a look.
2. But if the thought of limericks doesn’t make you cringe, read on. Well, read on anyway: Unlikely Story is launching a Kickstarter for Clowns: The Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix. If the project funds, it will contain a book with a little flash story by me about, natch, a clown. (Actually it’s only somewhat about the clown. That is, it has a clown, but it’s mostly about other things.)
Among the backer awards: limericks, by me, printed on little clown postcards. If that horrifies you, and I can’t say I blame you, Unlikely Story is offering other, considerably better backer awards, including microfictions, clown art, and short story critiques. Or you can just grab the ebook.
Samples of the sort of story you’ll find in the final book appear here. I think this is going to be a fun little project: fingers crossed that it funds.
My little fairy tale, The Fox Bride, popped up on Daily Science Fiction last week.
My poem, Understand, just popped up at Polu Texni.
