So the Dead Man is finally dying, dies, dead… my piece The Dead Man’s Death has been published in the June 2020 edition of RIC Journal.
I hope you like this one – it was a nice one to write, appeared in my head and simply needed to be set down, adjusted a little, polished and then sent.
Thanks as always to Saudamini.
Wrote a few things I probably shouldn’t have while in Melbourne last month for Burning House Press’s September, impressions of home edition. It’s a story now – called Faulkner on the Balcony.
With thanks and gratitude to Rachael.
I am delighted but saddened to have a new piece of fiction titled John in Tincture Journal – delighted that Tincture’s tireless editor Daniel Young gave the story a home, saddened because this is the journal’s final issue. The local literary culture is unquestionably poorer for it; apart from being a top guy, Dan edited closely, paid contributors, implemented an innovative e-publishing model and, crucially, gave many new writers their start. As with so much that goes on locally lit-wise, we are likely to only really understand what we had in Tincture now that it has ended.
Oh, and the story? The story is about a chance encounter with John Berger, who I am missing dearly.
Hugs and thanks, Dan.
My short story Then god; or, the daily torments of the devil has been published by Dead King Magazine.
The devil is not lonely.
Thanks to Penny.
My short story Selected passages from the diary of P has been published by Fanzine.
The story is related, directly, formally, to my writing on Kay Boyle in The Scofield, and thematically to Hellhole, published by Black Sun Lit. I think. I don’t know; the story meets, to my mind, at a point somewhere between the two.
With thanks to Blake Butler.
My short story The Taipan has been published over at Berfrois.
Ted “The Taipan” Barrie is a semi-professional boxer from the suburbs of Western Sydney. He will fight soon, but he probably shouldn’t.
Big thanks to Russell Bennetts for giving it a chance.
