My piece The Boys and the Dead Man has been published in the January 2021 edition of RIC Journal.
My gratitude to RIC for allowing me to walk the Dead Man into the new year. My goal this year is to not miss a single month (quality of work permitting).
With thanks, as always, to the beneficent Saudamini.
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.
I’m pleased to be able to report that my poem The Dead Man’s Unpaid Debt has been published in the October 2020 edition of RIC Journal.
This piece continues the Dead Man project, which has also, over time, become a RIC project – actually, I don’t know that any other publication has published any Dead Man…
Anyway, because it is also a RIC project, it means that regardless of how much – or little – I’m writing in a month, I am obliged to track the path of the Dead Man. Seeing where he ends up, and how, the mischief he makes, the lies he tells, is always a delight. For this I am very thankful to S.
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.
Very pleased to say that my piece Reverse Obituary has been published in the January 2020 edition of RIC Journal.
This was inspired by the desire to write an obit of sorts for Kabid and pull all the threads of his life story – i.e. pre-death and before he became The Dead Man – together; the Dead Man died long ago, and has since taken on a life of his own. But also I came across this wacky article in QZ on how envisaging one’s death can help with career goal setting…
Enjoyed the writing of this one a lot, felt the high for days. Thanks to S – as always.
