SPECIAL ISSUE #2: Poetry is all but finished. Stunning. This came about because I was receiving some great poems, but either didn't have room in the current/upcoming regular issues or they didn't quite fit what I had assembled. The line-up includes Kristen Michelle Håvet (Special Issue #1), Salvatore Buttaci, Lynn Alexander, Howie Good, Carla Criscuolo and Robert Crisman. Photography by Anna Szczekutowicz. Here's a snippet from "To Kim," by Robert Crisman:

I hit those indifferent rocks down below
left shards of bone that the rats wouldn’t touch
I relearned to walk
through the Bonneville Salt Flats
It took me 800 years…

I know, man. I know. Robert's poem is the first I chose for the Special. He will also have a short story in Issue #3/December 15, 2009.


I wrote and submitted a poem the other day to a fledgling magazine. The first thing I'd submitted in two months. Publishing disenthralled has been more satisfying than I imagined. I'm still writing every day (see "i carry your heart" at right), but have no interest in seeing my own work published at the moment.


If you haven't been following Jodi MacArthur lately, you're missing out. Jodi is my favorite practicing horror writer. I really can't say enough....

I have a poem called "Walking the Halls" in Shoots and Vines #4, recalling one of the most important and unforgettable nights of my life:


I also have a 100-word abomination, "John Denver's Head Ate My Grandmother," in MUST #7. You can read the collected material from MUST's #1-#7 here:

I finally started using my twitter account. Look for the blockbuster premiere-sized crowds, then head the opposite direction and ask the first person you'd rather not talk to how to find pitchbrite.

I also have some flash fiction in the new issue of Glossolalia. Check it out here:
