Wednesday Limerick: Giving Birth to a Minotaur
When a horny queen chooses to marry a bull
The offspring are often uncarriable.
Since above the boy half
Juts the head of a calf,
Minor tears & many tears are invariable.
Lockdown Fantasy #4 and #5 both launching in September 2022.
Two of my humorous fantasy stories told in rhyming verse will be among those published this month (September 2022) by Black Hare Press, in their most current Lockdown anthologies. Each volume includes several fantasy short stories or poems by a selection of talented writers.
In LOCKDOWN FANTASY #4, "Malomenire the Mad" tells the "sordid" story of a powerful wizard who becomes so insanely jealous of his apprentice that he plots his death by giving him unsurvivable tasks. It introduces the young wizard and future archmage, "Astromote".
In LOCKDOWN FANTASY #5, "Final Spell of The Archmage Astromote", takes up the tale of Astromote near the end of his illustrious, centuries-long career, as told by one of his former students. It concerns the archmage's quest for just the right ink and parchment to complete a final spell vital to mankind's survival.
Only 99 cents on Amazon:

Eldritch & Ether: Speculative Fiction Poetry (now available)
Eldritch & Ether
With a lot of support from the good folks at Black Hare Press, including volunteer readers, and co-editor Ximena Escobar, we compiled and edited this quality collection of speculative fiction poetry over several interesting but arduous months. It was published April 28. 2022.
It even features four of my own speculative fiction poems, in the last section, following Ximena's poems. Highly recommended, especially for those with "dark" tastes, as befits the Black Hare Press brand.readerlinks.com/l/2317394

Beautifully dark speculative and/or horror poetry
Not only do I have four poems in this poetry anthology, but partnering with Ximena Escobar, I helped edit and compile it. A secret team of volunteer readers was also a major influence on the poems selected.

My science fiction story, "New Owners for Old Earth" was accepted for Space Treks, by Starry Eyed Press. I can't wait to get back to writing more science fiction.

YEAR THREE: Dark Moments and Patreon
TBH, I am a little disappointed in myself for not contributing more works to this collection, but I've been struggling to focus on longer works (with mixed results so far).

My Published Writing for 2021
If I want to represent my year published writing in images, I have to choose pieces according when they are published, since I don't have images for all stories or poems accepted but not yet published. Even so, I'd call this a slow year.
