Speculative fiction magazine The Colored Lens published my short story “A Diamond in the Mind’s Eye” in their Summer 2017 issue #24. You can buy a Kindle copy of the whole issue here. The story itself just went live on the magazine’s homepage today; you can read it here.

The story follows an explorer who has been tracking a legendary giant diamond across the galaxy. What he finds is more disappointing than he expected, and ultimately far more valuable.

I’ve published a few stories before, but this is my first paid piece.

Otoliths #46, the southern autumn issue, is finally live on the web. A massive collection of visual, textual and video works, the issue includes my text poem “Hashing the Input” along with a link to the “Succubus Highway” video poem, and six stills from that video piece. The stills and video incorporate a section of the text piece: “lies like flames dance across time.” You can check out the whole package here.

Midnight Lane Boutique features outlaw poetry with a dark tone, with great visual design. Well worth exploring.

My text poem “Last Nickle Phone Call” appeared in the literary blog Your One Phone Call. This one features a recurring character in my poetry–Ouija, basically a living “mystifying oracle.” You can read it here.

Four visual poems appeared in the weblog The New Post-literate, which “explores asemic writing in relation to post-literate culture.” Asemic writing includes any kind of marks that seem like they might be writing, or suggest some intent to convey meaning. You can view the images here. All four pieces are stills taken from my video poem “Earth Remains Flat,” which can be seen on my Bionic Eyes YouTube channel here.

“Some New Wizard at the Wheel” in Streetcake

This morning my poem “Some New Wizard at the Wheel” went live in Streetcake magazine, Issue 53. You can read it here.

The poem is one of a series inspired by lost civilizations around the world. Under the current American regime, it seems important to examine the fragility of languages, cultures and nations.
