The half-price sale has sold out, so all of the available poems have been published for An Army of One: The Autistic Secession in Space. I have updated the series page accordingly.
I have updated the Serial Poetry page based on the February 5, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. New poems have been written in An Army of One: The Autistic Secession in Space, A Conflagration of Dragons, Hart's Farm, One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis, Path of the Paladins, The Steamsmith, and Tripping into the Future. Published poems have active links.
I have updated my Serial Poetry page following the January 8, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl, which had a theme of "military science fiction." There is a new entry for "Tripping into the Future" and a new poem linked in "Lacquerware." The subpages for Kung Fu Robots and Monster House have been updated with new poems. Another new series, "An Army of One: The Autistic Secession" is already long enough to have its own subpage.
There will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, January 22 featuring a poetic series.
All of the poems from the September 18 bonus fishbowl have been added to the Serial Poetry page. A new Steamsmith poem has also been added.
I have added three new poems to the Hart's Farm series on the Serial Poetry page. There are also a couple of new poems on the menu page for Schrodinger's Heroes over on my Dreamwidth blog. These are my first bingo set for Cottoncandy_bingo fest. You can see my bingo card here.
B1: "Sweet Words" (Hart's Farm)
B2: "The Threads of Our Lives" (Hart's Farm)
B3: "Hartlines" (Hart's Farm)
B4: "Come In, Please" (Schrodinger's Heroes)
B5: "The Cat's Pajamas" (Schrodinger's Heroes)
My hope with this fest is to attract some new readers and expand some of the more light-hearted series.
I'm working on a major site update and reorganization. First, there is a new tab: My Work. The former tab Books Written (along with all the subsections) has moved under that. The Serial Poetry page is also there, moved from the Crowdfunding tab. The main My Work page contains summaries of some project categories, each of which will lead to a section of individual projects.
New is the Shared Worlds section. Its main page contains summaries of the collaborative projects I frequent. Each shared world will then have its own page or subsection with a more detailed project description and links to available materials such as poetry, fiction, and websites.
So far, I've created the page for The Silk Road Allies, an alternate history setting in which China and Italy made friends in the first century A.D. It arose from interactions between myself, thesilentpoet, and marina_bonomi. There are five poems written at this time; three are posted in full, one is being funded in installments, and one is slated for later publication. Those visible online have been linked.
I have updated the "Serial Poetry" page with a link to my poem "Queen Choufa Protects the Drones from the Wrath of Arash-keen."
The "Serial Poetry" page now shows a link to the new Monster House poem "Grandma's Kitchen." There is also a link to the sketch of "unfolding wings" by Meeks.
One of my recently published poems is part of a science fiction series that I wrote quite some time ago. I decided to reprint the first poem in The Wordsmith's Forge, and I also added an entry to the "Serial Poetry" page. So now you can read about "Queen Choufa and the Rebel Drones" along with links to the two poems that are visible online.
I have updated the "Serial Poetry" page, adding links to new poems from the March 1, 2011 Poetry Fishbowl along with their prompters and sponsors. I also added two science fiction series that I forgot to include earlier, "Alien Ants and Butterflies" and "Poems About Phobic Starships."
This blog showcases my writing, editing, and other projects. It also provides space for the discussion of diverse topics. Please lean on the windowsill and join in.
