The Illumen Winter 2021 issue is on sale now over at Hiraeth Books; you can purchase it right here. If you do get a copy, please check out both poems of mine in this issue — “Not of Byzantium” and “All Our Faults Are Fallen Leaves.”
Thanks again to Editor Tyree Campbell for allowing me the opportunity to see my work appear in this outstanding science fiction and fantasy poetry magazine!
The Spring 2020 Issue is great read. I am currently enjoying the work of featured poet Francis W. Alexander.
If you can lay hands on a copy, I highly recommend K.S. Hardy’s short poem “Night.” It’s perfect.
Hey, I got one really terrific early Christmas present — Illumen will publish a poem of mine, “Smiling Among Inert Shipwrecks,” in its Spring 2020 issue. This will be the second time that the print-only publication has featured my work — the first was when Illumen published my “Three Dreamers” set of poems back in 2013.
Illumen is a speculative poetry journal that is released quarterly by Alban Lake Publishing. Its editorial focus is to “describe other worlds in poetic prose, challenge heroes and villains with eloquent words, show the nightmare of real life in all its disgusting mud and muck.” It’s a wonderful place for a writer to see their creative work appear, and I’m grateful to Editor Tyree Campbell for allowing me to share my voice there.
I’m honored to share here that Dead Snakes published “Three Dreamers” today. This is a set of three related poems that was first featured by Dagda Publishing, in the United Kingdom, in January 2013 — the poems’ individual titles are “The Writer,” “The Secretary,” and “The Bureaucrat.” Dagda subsequently featured these poems in print format in its 2013 poetry anthology, “Threads.” Finally, these poems were published in 2014 by Illumen, a quarterly print-only poetry journal here in the United States.
Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams also kindly informed me the he would feature the poems on another site for which he serves as editor — UFO Gigolo. This online publication focuses on poetry in the genres of fantasy, horror, and science fiction. I’m new to the site, but it looks like great fun, perhaps especially for the sci-fi and horror fans with whom I’ve become acquainted here at my blog.
You can find “Three Dreamers” at Dead Snakes right here:

I finally got a hold of a copy of the Autumn issue of Illumen, in which my trilogy of poems, “Three Dreamers,” was reprinted.
And it looks just beautiful!
I thought it would be fun to include a “cover gallery” at my website for places where my work has appeared:
