Hiraeth Books will publish three of my poems!

Great news!  The good folks over at Hiraeth Books will publish three of my poems in the coming months.  “Not of Byzantium” and “All Our Faults Are Fallen Leaves” will appear in the Winter Issue of Illumen magazine, which will be released in January.  “Industrial Revolution” will appear in the September Issue of The Fifth Di magazine.

If you follow this blog, then you know that Illumen is a favorite magazine of mine because of its excellent speculative poetry, but The Fifth Di is a magazine with which I’m not yet acquainted.  It sounds like a terrific science fiction periodical, and I’ll be looking forward to reading my first copy when the September issue is published.

Thanks once again to Managing Editor Tyree Campbell for allowing me to share my voice with such outstanding indie lit publications!



“The pine I climbed when I was nine.”

I ran an old poem of mine here not too long ago called “Not of Byzantium;” you guys were really cool about giving me positive feedback.  (Thanks for that, by the way.)

Then I found an old photo of the tree I described in the poem — “the pine I climbed when I was nine.”  I snapped it during a trip to New York two years ago, and it surfaced when I was cleaning out some old computer files.  I’d forgotten all about it.

I wish I’d run this photo with the poem.
