I’ll be the featured poet at this week’s Superior Poetry Cafe, tomorrow, Thursday, October 9, 2014, at 7 pm at Bayliss in the Sault. Wolf Skin will be available for sale and signing. The open mic after the reading is always interesting! U.P. poetry folks and fairy tale aficionados, see you there!
My sci-fi short, “Primrose, or Return to Il’maril,” in which a crotchety old woman xenoanthropologist investigates a culture set on dying with its star, is out now in Apex Magazine. This story was a blast to write, and I’m so pleased it has found a home there!
My review of Elizabeth Robinson’s haunting hybrid collection, On Ghosts, is now up at Verse:
Elizabeth Robinson’s fourteenth book, On Ghosts, is indeed a haunting collection. Elusive and difficult to characterize, the book contains poems as well as abstract essayistic passages, floating quotations, anecdotes, an e-mail, mathematical formulae, and descriptions of (absent) photographs. In her “Explanatory Note,” Robinson writes that the collection “is an essay on the phenomenon of ghosts and haunting,” and at first glance, this statement appears to be true.
