On ‘The Dead Man’s Gun’

My piece The Dead Man’s Gun has been published in the May 2020 edition of the ever-mysterious RIC Journal.

The Dead Man shifts and shakes based on mood or the position of the stars – I’m never sure where I will find him or where he will end up, especially in the era of the virus. It is always a thrill to have his deeds and wanderings appear in RIC – thanks to Saudamini, as always.

On ‘Crocodilian’

Very pleased to post that my poem Crocodilian has been published in the October 2019 edition of the ever-off-centre RIC. This issue also happens to be the third (!) anniversary of the publication, and as is now customary, the anniversary comes with a theme. This time it’s the Devil and Hell, hence the subject of the poem.

Wanted to write something fun but disconcerting and which also linked back to a piece I wrote a while ago called Then God, about the daily torments of the devil.

Thanks, as usual, to S, but also congratulations on making it this far despite everything and staying true to the original vision and intentions of RIC – long may it continue.
