I had the opportunity to sit down with Bram Stoker Award nominated author and editor of the HWA Poetry blog, David E. Cowen the other day and speak a little about the mechanics of prose poetry, the reason or unreason of the Cyber Gods and where it all fits into the subgenre of Weird Poetry.

You can read the full interview here. It was quite a rewarding exercise being able to talk about the how and why of my prose style.

I’m beginning to post a little more frequently here and will have a longer update coming soon talking about an anthology I’m currently editing (the Kickstarter is live and you can learn more here), some poetry that is forthcoming in Strange Horizons as well as an amazing book from Hex Publishers that I’m thrilled to have a piece in.

Today’s Kickstarter launch day! The debut anthology Hybrids: Monsters, Misfits, and Other Phenomena from Hybrid Sequence Media will feature a lineup of excellent writers and poets with stories and poems centered around the idea of hybrids.

“Stories and poetry with themes of otherness, outcasts, and creatures birthed by random or purposeful mutation, evolution, or perhaps even, a curse…”

The Kickstarter launches today so please consider backing this project. We have some really great stories so far. We also want to thank Luke Spooner for the fantastic and chilling artwork.

There will be an open call period for short stories and poetry which will be announced later, so stay tuned!

I’m very pleased to announce I will be co-editing an anthology Hybrids: Monsters, Misfits, and Other Phenomena from Hybrid Sequence Media with Donald Armfield.

The anthology will include stories and poems from an all-star cast of authors. Stay tuned for updates as Donald and I release more about each of the contributors!

In the meantime you can sign up to follow the Kickstarter launch page here.
