Have had my interlinking collection of prose poems, "Some Things Disappear", provisionally accepted for publication in Bewildering Stories, Issue 192 (April 10). It will be worked in earlier, if possible.

This is the piece that didn't get anywhere when I subbed it to the CBC literary comp. Bewildering's chief editor sent along some insightful comments to me before forwarding the piece over to another review editor. He wasn't sure my 'cabbage' leitmotif worked and wondered if the story couldn't be better told in prose.

Fortunately, the review editor likes the story and says the verse form adds to the 'mystery'.

Well ... if we had much snow, it just might be melting. This winter's been kinda like spring. Actually, it's been kinda like English weather!

I read a quote somewhere just recently and it said  'theres a name for a writer who never gives up -- published.'

Wonderful quote, Walker. I'm pinning that one to my bulletin board.

Thanks all ... for your cheers.  kiss

They do a nice job over at Bewildering. Nice mix of content, weekly updates. And their first print anthology is very well done.

Robert Blevins' Adventure Books team put this one together. The illustrations for each chosen story are perfect!

Yep - I keep meaning to sit down and write a time-travel story and send it in for consideration for an anthology they're doing.  Just haven't got around to it yet.  No ideas are springing to mind, either - most of the stories I can think of have been done to death. undecided

What?confused
What was that?

There is still time for good writers to get into that TT book. It's going to be hot...and a short book.
The idea will come to you in the early morning...just send it directly to me, Blunt. I will clean it up and stuff it into the book. (lol)
Donna forgot to mention one of her stories was included in the first BWS anthology... cool

I wonder if Grin would like to send in his story 'The Grandfather Paradox' for consideration?  With a little editing I think it would fit nicely into the anthology afro

I'll try harder to think of something, Robert - there's probably a flash lying around here that I could expand upon to make a decent story. smiley

Sorry, Robert. But I DID mention the anthology in my previous post ...

http://www.lulu.com/content/256419

Here's where you can find The First Bewildering Stories Anthology. And the editor was kind enough to include my story "A Trick of the Mirror". 'Tis a lovely book!

P.S. Robert ... when you click on the book cover images in your Lulu bookstore ... nothing happens.

A little crow for my sweetie, Flirtybee -- he's had a story accepted for publication on Monday:

http://www.bewilderingstories.com/issue193/walk_park.html

And ... NO ... I had absolutely nothing to do with it, nothing at all. I just made the suggestion that it was a perfect piece for Bewildering. The rest was up to the editor.

Romance writer? Hmmmm ... might suggest that to him as a future career path. He'd have to change his name, of course, to something a bit more feminine, eh?  bleh Any suggestions?

He does have a wonderfully emotive way of writing ... for a guy. Could be part of why I fell in love with him!

Fleurty has a 'je ne sais quois' about it, I must say!

grin Or "P.T. Fleur"  grin

And even though this brings P.T. Barnum to mind (the circus! the circus!), must say I like this, too.

Will ponder a bit and put forward a selection for Sir Flirty's review!
