Cat Rambo briefly reviews Sybil’s Garage 6 over at Fantasy Magazine. She picks out a few highlights, including ‘Drinking Black Coffee at the Jasper Grey Cafe’:
The magazine finishes with Stephanie Campisi’s “Drinking Black Coffee at the Jasper Grey Cafe,” a place both inviting and umheimlich at the same time, much like the magazine at its [...]
I’m quite sure that this was an episode of Millennium.
Spatterbaum and Zitherbother edits are well underway, and I hope to have approximately the first third revised by the end of today. Lots of slashing and hacking going on (in terms of word count, not content), although somehow my word count is growing in the fast [...]
So, hunting through Duotrope, it occurred to me that an inordinate amount of non-paying or very low-paying markets don’t take reprints. In my opinion, this is very silly.
Also, in case you were wondering, I managed to eat all of my 27 persimmons last week. And today I have had six bok choi(s?). Because, clearly, I [...]
The new issue of Opium magazine contains a 9 word short story by Jonathon Keats. The story is printed on the cover, which is covered with 2 layers of black ink, and an incremental overlay. Over time, the ink will break down, allowing the story to be read bit by bit. You’re looking at roughly [...]

In other news, Jono finally had his cast taken off today, and gleefully informed me that he’d brought it home for me to look at. [...]
Oh no! An extremely silly pun-based idea is intefering with my attempts at serious literature. You know, just for a change.
One of the reasons why Jono’s mum is awesome:
(Okay, so that’s a stock photo that I stole off the internet, but I really do have many, many persimmons on my lounge room table. So many, in fact, that I fully intend to make myself sick from eating all of them over very few days, but [...]
I’ve completed the first two chapters worth of edits on Spatterbaum and Zitherbother, and as a result, my brain is taking on mush-like qualities. The book has turned out to be pitched to a slightly older audience than I first anticipated, so a lot of the rewriting is taking the form of New and Improved [...]
