I can’t believe January has already almost come and gone. There’s so much to do, but I wanted to take a few minutes and update everyone with some of my upcoming writing appearances.

The Winter Edition of Spectral Realms No. 16 has been released from Hippocampus Press which includes contributions from Christina Sng, Wade German, Ann K. Schwader, Frank Coffman, and a host of familiar faces. The cover was designed by Dan Sauer which features the artwork A Witches’ Sabbath by Cornelis Saftleven, c. 1650.

I will have three prose poems in this issue, ‘The Great Parade,’ ‘The Beast with a Billion Stomachs,’ and ‘The City of Dreams.’

I’m particularly fond of the last piece due to the fact I tend to write a lot of my poetry as if I were dreaming in cities, landscapes and other metallic-scapes.

Next up is the Spring 2022 issue of the award winning publication The Horror Zine edited be Jeani Rector. This issue will feature three of my poems, ‘The Näigöth Waits,’Where No One Goes,’ and ‘Chthonic Dreams.’

Very happy to report that House of Stitched Magazine is available for purchase. The whopping 150+ page publication includes new fiction, non-fiction articles, and interviews from Brian Keene, Dacre Stoker, Jonathan Janz, James A. Moore, Rami Ungar, and others.

I’m thrilled to have some brand new poetry as well an interview in this publication. Being one of my first interviews, I was, and still am unnerved but mostly excited and humbled to be able to share these pages with friends and mutual colleagues. Lisa Vasquez has done an absolutely fantastic job at meticulously crafting this magazine, ensuring that every aspect of the artists’ vision if captured while producing a truly exquisite periodical.

My two prose poems Unable to Run, Unable to Die and Dracula’s Machine will appear in print for the first time in this issue.

I’m always happy to see the newest issue of Spectral Realms from Hippocampus Press! From the product description, ST Joshi had some kind words to say about the poems I have in this issue. “Among the prose poems in this issue, Maxwell I. Gold contributes a trio of his striking ruminations on the terrors of the cyber world.”

My three prose poems in this issue, “Laughter Out of the Sea,” “Télos: The Anxiety of Choice”, and “Of Masks and Monsters.”
