Poetry is Fun, Kids

A bit chagrined at such a self-serving post? Yep. But I can't even keep track of the poetry I've published in the last year, so here's the thing:

Nominations for the Rhysling Award close February 12th. This is the only real award for speculative poetry going at the moment, and if anyone is a member of the SFPA and was loss as to what to nominate for the long form poetry category (as I don't really do short form), do consider these (links where they are available online):

The Child Bride of the Lost City of Ubar
, Endicott Studio Summer/Fall
The Eight Legs of Grandmother Spider Mythic 1
The Descent of Inanna, Papaveria Press (Ha, VERY long)
Suttee, Jabberwocky
Pasiphae's Machine, Heliotrope Magazine
The Descent of the Corn-Queen of the Midwest, Mythic Delirium
Helen in the Underworld, Lone Star Stories
The Frog-Wife, Lone Star Stories
Past the Rivers, Goblin Fruit
The Inkmaker's Wife, Electric Velocipede
Anatmy of a Yes, Electric Velocipede

I'm pretty sure that's all. Thanks for giving it a thought, if you do.

I need to write a few poems and short stories, I think, to transition from The Orphan's Tales-voice to the next novel, so before me this week are the immortal questions: pirate story or prostitute story first?

There is also a criminal lack of hot chocolate in this house.
