Join “The Dance” in the Latest Issue of “Lovecraft eZINE”

Lovecraft eZineQuite a few readers (and bless their hearts for caring) have complained that none of my work is available in electronic format.  This news is for them.

“The Dance”—one of my little prose poems/nano fables/micro tales—awaits your perusal in issue #22 of the always stellar Lovecraft eZineaccompanied by a delightfully macabre illustration from a certain Nick “The Hat” Gucker.

Edited by Mike Davis, this issue of Lovecraft eZine also includes stories by Samantha Henderson, Simon Kurt Unsworth, Don Webb, Joe Nazare, David Conyers and John Goodrich, as well as art by Steve Santiago, Adam Baker, Robert Elrod, and Dominic Black.

And for those who prefer listening to reading, an audio edition of the entire issue—elocuted by Chaz Engan, Morgan Scorpion, Vincent LaRosa, Lou Columbus, and David Binks—is available directly from Lovecraft eZine.

Thanks for reading, friends.

“Would-Be Selves”

Come along, my would-be selves, and let us live a life, if for no other reason than to say, when it is over, that we did.

Think of all the loves and hates we will temporarily adopt, all the troubles and delights we will foster into being, all the laughter and the tears we will cause and quell alike, the days we will wake to and waste, the nights we will dream in and forget, the children we will make and mar, the parents we will thrill and bury, and all the silly things we will wear along the way, the hairstyles and habiliments, the passions and opinions, the banners and boredoms and outrageous beliefs. How mad it all will be. How mad and miraculous and not to be missed.

So come along, my would-be selves, and let us live a life, if for no other reason than to say, when it is over: “How ridiculous and wonderful it was.”
