A few October releases

I can officially share this now:  I have a science fiction poem due out in the next issue of Apparition Literary Magazine, themed around Nostalgia! 

Also, my latest poem, “Where in the Zoo Is Carmen Sandiego?”, just posted on Sidequest.  I’ve been focusing a lot on speculative poetry lately, but this poem is autobiographical.  The Carmen Sandiego themed event really did happen, and I dug out my old ZooTeen yearbook and found the following excerpts: 

Good memories. 

One of my other Sidequest poems, “Nightmarens,” is part of this year’s Halloween reading by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA).  You can hear lots of spooky works, most of them read by their poets, on the SFPA Halloween page.  I’ve also got a poetry reprint coming out in Pastel Pastoral later this month. 

In fiction news, I’m looking forward to the impending release of Flame Tree Publishing’s Christmas Gothic anthology, which includes my story “Midnight for Clementine.”  If you love a dose of darkness in your winter holiday season, this is the book for you. 

And remember, registration is open for the online Creating Nonhuman Characters workshop next month!
