My story “Her Acres of Pastoral Playground” from Cthulhu’s Reign now up at StarShipSofa

As well as some delightfully pulpy artwork. Cthulhu fhtagn!

The podcast also contains an interview with me afterward, full of awkward pauses, strange skips, and giggle fits. I reveal, among other things, that the inspiration for “Her Acres of Pastoral Playground” owes more to John Carpenter’s “The Thing” than H.P. Lovecraft, and Tony Smith praises me for making use of sound effects without screwing up the recording. He’s an expert, so I consider that high praise.

“Surviving Wonderland” appears in Stone Telling; “Heart’s Delight” appears in Not One of Us

/ September 27th, 2011 / No Comments »

Today ends up being a double-poem day.

My poem “Surviving Wonderland” popped up today at the new issue of Stone Telling, which just went live. It’s a delicious looking issue, focused on myth in storytelling, with contributions by Yoon Ha Lee, Delia Sherman, Amal El-Mohtar, Sonya Taaffe, Erik Amundsen, Shira Lipkin and many others. The issue also contains a creepy recording I made to go with my poem, and a few thoughts I shared on the poem in a round table discussion. There’s also a review I wrote of the poems (and just the poems) in Not One of Us 45.

And, coincidentally, my poem “Heart’s Delight” (a Claire-dare poem prompted by Nicole Kornher-Stace) appears in Not One of Us 46, which is being mailed to subscribers this week. There’s also work from Patricia Russo, Rose Lemberg, Sonya Taaffe, Erik Amundsen and more. If it’s not on its way to you, here’s where you go to fix that.
