I have just learned that the critically-acclaimed speculative fiction magazine Murky Depths has won the 2010 British Fantasy Award for Best Magazine/Periodical. Congratulations to Terry Martin, the whole editorial crew and all the artists and writers who contributed to this success.

Which would include...

Me! My epistolary short story "The Longest Road in the Universe" was published in the magazine last year, so of course I am especially excited to hear about this award (Incidentally, that publication marked the first time my name ever appeared on the cover of anything too, so...like...SHAZAAM!)

I have taken on the roll of volunteer poetry editor for Aontacht, an online publication of Druidic Dawn. What follows is a call for submissions.

Volume 3, Issue 2,
Deadline Aug 15, 2010

The Celts understood the Wild Earth as sovereign, as a goddess; what is sovereignty and how can we apply this to our everyday life?

For this issue, I'll be looking for poetry that addresses the relationship between the sovereign and the land as expressed in Celtic cosmology and literature. Your interpretation of this theme might be Pagan, Christian, historical, modern, fantastic or other. You might write free verse, structured verse or prose poetry. Submissions should be sent in the body of your e-mail as plain text to aontacht (at) druidicdawn (dot) org.

This is a bodhrán duet I played with Tristan at the Chelsea Sounds & Sights festival in June, 2010, which was recorded and cut by banjo player Dave Foster. I thought we sounded pretty good!

When I first learned this song as a child, I thought it was about flowers.

My very first favorite folk song. I've known the words as long as I can remember. They're here, along with the tin whistle tune.

An easy tune, and the first one I've felt I could play reasonably well. The lyrics can be found below the sheet music. Enjoy!
