Egrets Reading

Two Scifaiku at Lone Star Stories

The new issue of Lone Star Stories is online now with two of my scifaiku. This is the first time that Eric has published scifaiku in Lone Star Stories. Also, it has turned out to be an all female author issue, with work by Sandra MacDonald, Pam McNew, Samantha Henderson, Jo Walton, Marina Lee Sable, and myself.

I'm still running the "Dwarf Stars" contest in my blog here. It's not too late to enter a poem for a chance to win your choice of a copy of Dwarf Stars or a copy of the print issue of Scifaikuest.

The response to Dwarf Stars has been very positive so far. Emily Gaskin gave it a nice review in her blog. One person thought I should make it a biannual journal. Another donated money towards my postage expenses. I don't know if it has convinced anyone to vote for my short-short Rhysling Award, but I'm happy that people seem to be enjoying it and my fingers are crossed.
