Unreal Republics

It's taken a little while for things to develop, but now I can finally announce some exciting news: my first chapbook, Unreal Republics, is available for preorder from Finishing Line Press, with the release date currently set for November 22. Details forthcoming, as details happen.

Mezzo Cammin, "Sadness of a Star"

Four of my poems are now up at Mezzo Cammin! Tolle, lege.

I'm also happy to say that my first published translation, of Apollinaire's "Tristesse d'une Étoile," will be appearing in Blue Lyra Review next year. While I've found that I may not have the patience for any long-term translation projects, it's still definitely something that I care about, and hope to keep doing.

Mythic Poetry Challenge Week

Over at Terri Windling's blog, it's Poetry Challenge Week, which does exactly what it says on the tin. Yesterday's theme was Red Riding Hood; I dashed off this contribution. Today's theme is Rapunzel, which doesn't really grab me, but--who knows?--may inspire you.

Nel mezzo del cammin . . .

I'm very happy to say that four of my poems are slated to appear in the Summer 2014 issue of Mezzo Cammin! As is apparent from my previous publications, I'm not properly a formalist, but I do sometimes play one on TV. And I'd been writing a lot of sonnets.

Three things make a post

1. My poem "Duality" is online at The Siren.

2. Tired of Veterinarian-Ballerina-Schoolteacher Barbie? Why not Classicist Barbie? Accessories include a bust of Homer and a tiny Oxford Classical Dictionary.

3. Mel Gibson IS Hamlet. Or, well, maybe not. The Viking-ish setting also gives me pause--I'm well aware of the fallacy of depicting the past as "primitive" and therefore "noble," but it seems to me that the world of the play is rather too subtle, too courtly, too corruptly sophisticated for this age. (Would a true Beowulf-era Hamlet simply have denounced Claudius as a murderer and delivered a challenge to him?)

Strange Horizons Readers' Poll 2012

I guess it's time for even more self-promotion, by which I mean, if you liked "La Dame à la licorne," you could always vote for it, in any slot from #1 to #5. The poll is open until March 11.

Rhysling-eligible poems, 2012

To my own surprise, I have two Rhysling-eligible poems this year (that both have Gratuitous French titles is a coincidence):

"La Dame à la licorne" : Strange Horizons, September 2012
"La Mort et son puceau" : inkscrawl, April 2012

The deadline for nominations has been extended to February 28.
