Happy Hour at the Tooth and Claw

20th June 2013 | 0 Comments

So, you may remember that Mike Allen had a Kickstarter for Clockwork Phoenix 4, and that his $10K goal, which he made, was that he’d start a new magazine. He hit the goal, and we all got a little ridiculous on Twitter. ******* Me: Hey @mythicdelirium when do submissions open for your BRAND NEW MAGAZINE […]


The Busker, Broke and Busted

16th May 2013 | 0 Comments

I’m in an odd position with this poem, in that I don’t really remember writing it. I remember it coming out, and me being bewildered – because it isn’t actually a poem. It’s a song, a Gilbert-and-Sullivanesque patter song about an obsolete robot. I remember bits of it coming to me in the shower, and […]


I Am Thinking of You in the Spaces Between

7th October 2011 | 0 Comments

I travel more than most, less than some, and I have a special love for liminal places. Especially when I’m alone and not having to manage anyone else. Buses, trains, airplanes. I like being between. In March 2009, I had the exceptional fortune to be on the now-legendary Trains of Heaven trip with SJ Tucker […]


The Library, After

23rd June 2011 | 0 Comments

I originally wrote “The Library, After” at the very end of 2008; it was one of five unprompted Wind Tunnel Dreams flash stories. (Note: I dug this information out of my personal blog; in so doing, I found that I use the word “library” in WTD stories rather a lot.) Several of the stories in […]


The Portal to Heaven

14th February 2011 | 1 Comment

“The Portal to Heaven” was another Wind Tunnel Dreams story-prompt. I seem to have gone through a mild addiction to soft-singularity stories. “The Library, After” is entirely posthuman. “The Portal to Heaven” isn’t quite, but it’s getting there. What happens to heaven and hell after we upload ourselves? “The Portal to Heaven” appears in Electric […]


And To My Wife…

23rd October 2010 | 0 Comments

This is another piece that came out of my reader-prompted series, “Wind Tunnel Dreams”. One of the prompts I got was “and to my wife, I leave the electric kettle and the screwdriver set.” Now, what do you do with that? I had no idea. I sat on it for most of the month, looking […]


When Her Eyes Open

29th March 2009 | 0 Comments

In September 2008, I did one of my frequent collaborations with Kythryne Aisling of Wyrding Studios. We solicited prompts from our readers… and every weekday, I wrote something and she created a piece of jewelry based on the same prompt. We had lots of fun – Kyth’s a great collaborator, a very gifted artist, and […]


Unruly Harvest

29th March 2009 | 0 Comments

At WisCon 2008, I went to one of Elise Mattheson’s haiku earring parties; she makes dozens of pairs of earrings that can be all yours for the price of a haiku. You go in and pick out your earrings, and she gives them a title. You write a haiku, based on the title or the […]
