Blinking Cursor

Pleased to have a poem coming in first issue of Blinking Cursor, a new zine, coming in their first issue. Check them out, they are also on the lookout for people who are quite new to submitting.

And so are we of course, at the epic rites netzines: not the journal though, that's by invitation.

There are five by me still up at L'Intrigue from the 2008 issue, pleased to say that five will be coming there soon in next issue. Thanks to Kat Tracy for incredibly swift response.

A poem by me raining sweetly blood will be up in the 15th October issue of The Bicycle Review. Seems to be a great zine.

Sex & Murder

Delighted that two by me are coming in Sex & Murder, in fact I killed two mothers with one bone there and one of the poems is "for Edmund Kemper" - a poem about my favorite murderous pervert, present company excepted.

I am delighted by this zine and quote them a little below. Send your sicknesses.

"There aren't many magazines that go in for extreme horror, or splatterpunk. The general reason that's usually given is that there's no market for it, the stuff is just not palatable to the mainstream audience. Quite frankly, I think that's bullshit. Horror movies have steadily become more and more extreme in their depictions of violence and gore, and their audiences have come back time and time again begging for more. So, the audience is there, they're just not being reached.

In the weeks and months to come, Sex and Murder will become a place where fans of the truly dark and depraved can come to sate their thirst for gore, so stick around; great stuff is on the way."

Belly at OW

David Blaine at Outsider Writers, a great poet himself, was kind enough to post the Rob Plath review for a bellyful of anarchy. It's up here.

Killauthor - Barthes issue

Appropriately, the 1st issue of Killauthor is "Barthes" - four by me starting with this one here.

Origami Condom

Pleased to see two by me up in the guest issue of Origami Condom, it's available here as a pdf, the poems are in dreams i often see and the streets are. Why do all zines assume you need Adobe to read pdfs? Anyway, happy to be there.

Leaf Garden Press

Happy to say that Leaf Garden Press were kind enough to accept three poems, a little history, under the trees is rock, and like crystals, for issue three of their fine new zine, which will be available in tree-killer paper, as well as for download or online consumption. Thank you Robert Henry and Melanie Brown, editors. This is a consolation during this day of canine diarrhea.

Glasgow Review

I often include music or film references, only once Jarboe, so far, and that poem, music smoking, will be in the excellent Glasgow Review in September some time.

Speaking of film references, my chapbook Hellbound is being printed this week, young cenobites, so get evil and get it.

The Muse Thing

Just noticed that another two, a dog on a mountain and words and eternity, were up at The Muse Thing a couple of days ago, and are, obviously, still there. I hope they are for a long time since The Muse Thing is a really great netzine and should be there with all its wonderful words for a damn eternity.

Target Audience Feature Summer poet 2009

Delighted that the excellent mag Target Audience, who also have a great interview with Ministry - a pretty phenomenal band - have decided to run a little bit about me as their summer featured poet for 2009. It's a really enlivening zine thta features not only great poetry, but much more, my bit is up here. (Jesus built my hot-rod too.)

Literary Chaos Print #2

My copy of Lit Chaos #2 print came today. Excellent as one would expect from "the web's pre-eminent experimental writing site." It starts with five poems by me and there are others too numerous to mention, but including Cindy Rosmus, Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal and R.-M. Chiaia. 'Tis on sale at the ridiculously low price of $13.95 at their website.

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


Two by me, I'm happy to say, are in LoBrow and posted in the zine's premiere issue here, though you have to scroll down, no direct link possible.

Calliope Nerve's Muse Thing

Muse Thing, which, as you should know by now if you read this blog, is the web presence of the great free zine Calliope Nerve, has just posted two by me. Run by the dedicated Nobius Black the zine has become one not to miss. Buy their diverse (non-poetry) stuff on Amazon here. They get positive ratings. And get the poetry (non-porn) side here at white rabbit: black hole.

Edit: Another up, the hooligan clouds.

Muddy River Poetry Review

Pleased to say that one by me will be in the reborn zine Muddy River Poetry Review, they have great work in the first online issue in their new incarnation already so check it out.

Acappella Zoo

Happy to see that Acappella Zoo did an early launch of their web version, I have one in issue two which is already on sale and is now also online, my poem is here.

Spark Bright

Happy to say that a poem we bury her in us will be in Spark Bright Magazine, a new netzine. The poem is one of many that references Chucky and Tiffany, though the implication that they are unfaithful to each other now is one that Tiffany resents.

LoBrow Magazine

LoBrow are a zine whose basic idea is to have absolutely no shame. They are taking subs for the 1st issue, which will include two shameless pieces by me, frog flopping and the sea in Stockholm. Look out for guidelines etc here.

Saturday, June 6, 2009


As promised, three poems seem to be up in Aposiopieces. The first issue is here and the poems are time bounces a pine cone, a symbol is a falsehood, and virtuous vulture.

I would encourage all my readers, in general, to strive to be as much like Saint Edmund Kemper as possible. I mean, do you love your mother, or do you really love her?

EDIT: Looks like these poems are actually posted now, seems to be a great zine

kill author

There's a new zine around that will have good stuff, at least four passable poems by me, in the first issue, i'm sure. They are kill author and are open to submissions now so send them stuff, it's literature "for the mostly alive" - at least 70% of me is ticking over nicely, so I qualify easily. Maybe not in ten years time.

Callused Hands Feature

Happy to say that Ivan at Callused Hands just posted a five poem feature by me and also a brief interview where I am asked a little about advice for beginning poets or young poets, and about influences and so on. (I forgot to mention Roky Erickson there.) There's also an excellent first issue up below. A very promising zine and they are open to submissions. I wholeheartedly support their idea of "ordinary literature for ordinary people," getting rid of the nasty taste of elitism that plagues academic poetry.

Anyway, the interview and feature are here.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009


Because of my extraordinary laziness I have failed to mention two poems by me in Neonbeam 8 and link them. Issue nine of this great zine Neonbeam is coming soon which I didn't even submit to since I didn't know, living in a doggy daze as I do, with wrong links and dubious nihilsitic ideologies and god knows what else. They changed url so my links, now corrected, were out of date.) Anyway, the pdf is free here and the issue on sale at Lulu.

As always, Sammi Leng did a great job, and the issue includes work by myself, Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal, and many others.

Heavy Bear 2

Heavy Bear 2 is posted now as well. A couple of poems by me here, also work by John Yamrus, Misti Rainwater-Lites, and Puma Perl - among many others, of varying sorts.

Then the reviews - one of the new epic rites masterpiece a bellyful of anarchy by Rob Plath, two others, one of the great relentless, part of Todd Moore's Dillinger epos, and antebellum messiah Marie Lecrivain.

These will probably be the last reviews I write for a very long time, I'm not going to be reviewing or blurbing any more, maybe a few for epic rites, of course. There are some forthcoming in the next Clockwise Cat I believe, but then that's it.
