The Exuberant Ashtray

Notorious degenerate Rob Plath just picked a fag butt out of the smelly ashtray that is my computer and will stick it in his Exuberant Ashtray, a blogzine thing he has decided to start, this ashtray is in need of cleaning here, and he coughs up a phlegmatic blob in it about himself here, if you want to taste his nicotine.

Rob's own poetry rocks pretty hard, and I'm sure the zine will rule. Though he's a lazy douche. Looking forward to his book.

On a happy note, young Lucas has gone over two days without a single accident. Not bad for an eight week old puppy. The cats don't mind him. He will start a puppy blogzine himself - "The well shat-in tasty kitty litter tray." He dreams of it, the cats are crapping in trays on shelves now.

Breadcrumb Scabs

There is a new poetry magazine out called Breadcrumb Scabs. That is a stupendous name and they will be running three things by me in their first issue, probably in January. They are open to most themes, they like, among other things, strong images, confessional content, women's and LGBT content, also dark, emotional work about the human condition. They probably won't want stuff praising the opinions of St Paul. The submissions guidelines are here, so get scribbling, get submitting...

The League of Laboring Poets

Very pleased to have just heard that The League of Laboring Poets will be printing "we never grow" by me in their Spring 2009 issue. It can be ordered here. Seems to be a damn good magazine.

Also pleased to hear from another magazine that I have been nominated for a pretty prestigious award. Not sure if I'm meant to say which magazine, so I won't until I know it's OK.

Clearfield Review

Very pleased to hear that a piece by me is forthcoming in Clearfield Review, Utah's online literary magazine. Their first issue is coming soon and they are here. I'm sure it will be excellent, the poem by me is pretty OK, I think. Always good to see new zines come.

Weave Magazine

The first issue of the new print magazine is out and arrived in my mailbox today. And a very professional production it is. There's one poem by me in it, and I'm very pleased that that poem found such a classy home. The magazine's website is here, and it can be ordered here.

Bolts of Silk

Very pleased that a poem by me has just been posted in the excellent new zine Bolts of Silk. They have some good stuff there in general and are well worth checking out. The poem is here and the zine is here.

Dark Matter

The anthology for 2008 with selected writings from down in the dirt and Children, Churches and Daddies is out. It's on sale for five dollars as a download or for fifteen as a 190 page paperback book (or hardback in varying formats) here. It includes a long poem by me called "dog eye variations" that I really like.

Buy this, suckers, make the world a stranger place.

Unlikely Stories

Very pleased that Jonathan Penton over at the excellent and progressive zine Unlikely Stories, who are here, has taken three things to run just before Xmas, because I'm a very seasonal fucker and will be celebrating the death of the lame-ass savior by whacking off on a toad in a pentagram just like everyone else. I actually have three poemks in their April issue too, you can read those here.

Note that the poems have nothing to do with Xmas and I'm not dreadfully interested in the holidays, it's not like you get cheap blow or anything.

La morte vivante, out soon

My chapbook with Shadow Archer is out very soon. The thing is very inexpensive and it's here. Do buy it, there are several blurbs at the link.

Puma Perl - chapbook available

Puma Perl's excellent first chapbook can now be ordered from Erbacce press here, and there is a link at that site back to my review at this blog, which spares me the trouble of finding the fucker. I say again that you should buy this thing, it's in several ways the best of the many chapbooks that I have reviewed recently. It's as good as Chinese Democracy, but less noisy so you can read it without drowning out the boring crap on the TV, or competing with other albums you also might want to listen to.

chunks of tasty Cadaver

Nobius over at Calliope Nerve has been kind enough to post a couple of poems from Cadaver's dance at the Muse Thing, the Calliope Nerve weblog. The poems are here. It's going to be a great extension of the zine and I'm delighted to be in it. The book is on Whistling Shade here and can be bought at Amazon here.

Heroin Love Songs 4

A nicely non-offensive poem by me, highly decorous and filial, is up in Heroin Love Songs Journal 4. There are far too many to mention everyone, but Pablo Vision, Misti Rainwater-Lites, Rob Plath, Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal, Puma Perl, Lester Allen and Felino Soriano are in it. Print copies can be obtained here.

Also news that Jack Henry's chapbook is on sale from Erbacce here.


Cool to say that a thing by me will be appearing in the February 2009 Decomp. It's an excellent and regularly appearing zine and it's here, so check it out.

Problem Child

Pleased to say that a thing by me, "dirty memory," is in Problem Child, which, as we all remember, unless we are children with problems with amnesia, is a delicious song by the Damned, from Music for Pleasure, unless I misremember. It's also Penn State's alternative literary magazine; and this magazine can be ordered here. There is an excellent selection of work online too at their site here.

the lesion that is the ego

Well, about my not noticing things, I missed two issues of Poetry Repairs, one is easily one of my favorite poems by me, really weird shit about Sid Vicious, Curt and Courtney, Lacan, Hegel, and the authenticated medieval divine prepuces of Jesus, it is here and I love it though it is, in a profound sense of the word, crap, and sucks monkey balls, but effortlessly.

The other one includes me, yet again, nicking the trumpetings of the prophet Yeats. That one is here. By the way, Poetry Re-pairs is a really great site to read to get a little inspiration, to get the old emulative instinct flowing. Yeats much better poem is on the same page, but he's dead and I'm still sort of living, so fuck him.

Misericordes - Marie Lecrivain

Another thing I failed to notice earlier is that a review by me of the excellent Misericordes by Marie Lecrivain has been posted at Subtle Tea here. Do buy it.

Alors et toi

Forgot to mention that a couple of poems by me are up at Alors et toi issue three, which is here. Great zine and the poems are here. A lot of things I miss, get posted without me noticing etc, but I remembered now, temporarily fighting back senility like old King Cunt, or whatever they used to call him. I shall also try to update my many links better as issues change and move to archives and so forth.

Static Movement Nov 2008

Seem to have forgotten to mention that there is a poem by me called "fall" in the Nov 2008 issue of Static Movement. Well there is, it's a great zine, and here the poem is.

La morte vivante - advance orders and reviews

Very pleased that they have posted a few reviews of La morte vivante at Shadow Archer press. There's a link to advance order for a mere five dollars by card via PayPal. It's a limited signed edition and I'll soon be receiving the sheets to sign so it is coming soon. It's available here. Thanks to everybody there who took the time to read and write a review blurb.

Calliope Nerve 17

Happy to say that Calliope Nerve 17 is out and can be ordered for $3.50 here. It contains five poems by me and also work by J.D. Nelson, Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal, Jim Benz, Ariel Lee, Christian Ward, Felino Soriano, Puma Perl, Sergio Ortiz, and John Grey. In other words, it's an excellent read. So get a copy.

Opium Poetry Blogzine

Very pleased to just have had a thing posted at OpiumpoetryBlogzine, a very good new online magazine with some first rate poets in it. They are here and my thing is here. The zine is well worth adding to your list of stuff to read regularly, so do check it out.

Gutter Eloquence

Pleased to say that I have a thing in the inaugural issue of Gutter Eloquence magazine. That will be coming here and it will probably be very good since Jack T Marlowe edits it.

the dead living girl - forthcoming chapbook

Everybody must love the film The Living Dead Girl? Once I watched it while simultaneously reading Verlaine's collected - this resulted in me writing a thing, twenty odd poems, called the dead living girl. Only the title poem has been published, in Zygote in my Coffee, this poem is still here, though the zine has since folded they still have the website up.

Now Shadow Archer Press, publishers of the first rate Fissure mag, are going to do a limited edition signed and numbered copy of the whole thing. I'm dead chuffed about that since I love the film, and the poems I did I quite like too. I mean, any film Rob Zombie likes must be great. His The Devil's Rejects is one of the few that comes close to it.

Anyway, Shadow Archer Press are here, they have lots of chapbooks by other poets on offer there, buy something. Buy a copy of Fissure if you can, the new issue, very sensibly, includes two by me.

Poor Catherine, she was dead and her girlfriend wouldn't let her be dead. She had to feast on all these people.

The Journal

Very happy to announce that two things by me willl be in the Spring 2009 issue of the excellent print mag The Journal. "one day the air" and "sidewalk." The Journal can be ordered etc here, and ,by the way, you can read "the ultimate slice " of editor Sam Smith's novel here at bibliophila.

Blue Fifth Review

One thing by me is in the October 2008 issue of the Blue Fifth review here. The zine itself is here. Well worth a read.

Red Peter

Very pleased indeed to note that seven poems by me are up at the absolutely excellent zine Red Peter. They are here and the poems are here. They present an eclectic mix of stuff bound together by the unifying feature of being very good and cool. So read them and my poems there, lots of other goodies too.
