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.
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.
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.”
