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 am delighted to report that my poem 'Leviathans' has been accepted for publication in Strange Horizons.
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!
"The Interstitial Fairy Demolition Crew Casts a Circle" is now available at Eternal Haunted Summer.
