The pandemic continues, we are in lockdown and the Dead Man stays dead. As I write this, the state government of Victoria tells the residents of my state we cannot enter. I cannot leave my home without a mask; I cannot go beyond a 5km radius. Calasso died today. It is 2021.
There is little left to say.
Read The Dead Man Did Bad Things.
Read Untitled (The Dead Man Must Come Back).
With thanks, as always, to Saudamini.
The pandemic continues, the Dead Man wanders on. My piece The Dead Man and the Drop Tower has been published in the April 2021 edition of the ineffable RIC Journal.
With thanks, as always, to Saudamini for giving life to the Dead Man.
Very pleased to be able to say that my piece Untitled (The Dead Man’s Mother) has been published in the March 2021 edition of RIC Journal (we hardly know what year it is, and neither does the Dead Man).
With thanks and gratitude to S for giving continued life to the Dead Man.
My piece The Dead Man’s Circumstances has been published in the final edition of RIC Journal for 2020.
The Dead Man has again accompanied me through the year, guiding me through the madness of 2020 like Virgil. I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating: I couldn’t have continued to write The Dead Man without RIC’s support. Though I need The Dead Man – and, this year, needed him more than ever – without RIC there would no need to write on him.
With thanks, as always, to S.
Very pleased to be able to share that my piece Ueno Zoo has been published at Fugitives & Futurists, an exciting new lit journal out of the UK.
Wrote this while watching nature documentaries and reading Kafka’s Lost Writings but also while holding in mind a couple of pieces I wrote a few years ago, specifically Then God and Economies of Scale. I love the image that accompanies the piece, it matches the intent perfectly.
With thanks to Andrew.
I’m very pleased to have a new piece in the November 2020 edition of RIC Journal titled The Dead Man’s Gift.
The Dead Man buys birds, the pandemic continues: New South Wales has had eleven days with no reported community transmission of Covid, Victoria has had 20 days straight of no new cases, SA has just entered full lock down.
Thanks, as always, to Saudamini.
Quick post to announce the full release of Full Stop Podcast Episode #9, in which Kyle Coma-Thompson and I talk about our book, 926 Years, Sublunary Editions, how we met and more.
I wrote about the podcast episode and how it came about.
Listen over at Full Stop.
With thanks again to Max and Jesse.
This is the recording of a reading from 27 August 2018 of my short story Faulkner On The Balcony, originally published in Burning House Press.
Forgot about it, don’t remember why I made it, but found it the other day in my voice memos.
I have a piece in the January 2019 edition of RIC Journal titled Poem for the Dead Man.
Thought I could leave the dead man behind… This could only have been published by RIC.
I’m deeply thankful to S – as usual.
My short story or fragment Sundown has been published in the final edition of RIC Journal for 2018. It’s always always a serious pleasure to be in RIC, a singular journal that continues to do its very own thing. Long may that continue.
With thanks to S, as usual.
