Okay, where are we? Right now I'm reading Robert Heinlein's novel Starship Troopers. If I don't finish it tonight, it'll be tomorrow. It's got all of that breezy Heinlein speed whisking along in a masculine military world. And it won the Hugo Award for the best science-fiction novel of 1960.
I'm about halfway through the June issue of Poetry magazine. Standouts thus far are Paul Hoover, Erin Belieu, & D. Nurkse.Read Full Post »

I finished that Connie Willis book of award-winning short stories. It was indeed wonderful; I wouldn't call this hard SF, although some time travel is involved as well as some dismal looks into the future a few decades hence. Don't worry, there's madcap comedy too. One interesting fact: Every one of these ten tales is told from the first-person viewpoint.
And I'm getting a bit further in the May issue of Poetry Magazine, devoted to Australian poets. T...Read Full Post »

Okay, I'm ba-a-a-ck. The plan is to post a new blog every Sunday or, failing that, at least once each year. Just kidding. The goal really is a weekly post.
So what am I reading? First, a delicious book of short stories by Connie Willis. This is science-fiction, a collection of some of her award-winning tales called The Best of Connie Willis. After reading the first four I can see why she's considered a Master. Highly recommended.Read Full Post »

Greetings & felicitations! I attended the Poetry For Peace reading yesterday evening at St. Lawrence University. This was a special reading, held once a semester, when all the foreign language students read works in the original language along w/ an English translation. It was quite a menagerie of poetry. I heard one poem in Arabic, two poems in Portuguese, one in French, three cuties by Shel Silverstein, three in Italian, four in Chinese, one poem by Char...Read Full Post »

Anyone in northern New York should consider attending the poetry reading to be held this Friday evening in downtown Potsdam, at 7:00 at the Creative Spirit Art Gallery on Raymond Street. Eleven readers are scheduled (including me) w/ a free-form musical jam to be performed afterwards, in which everyone is invited to join. Kayla French has organized this entire extravaganza & hopes to make it a regular event, w/ open-mikes included for the future. I'm looking forward to g...Read Full Post »

Okay, the Lorrie Moore thing didn't work out; she apparently got the flu & couldn't make it, although I hear they are trying to reschedule for next school year. So on Tuesday we saw Katherine Riegel at SUNY Potsdam who gave a talk on poet craft, specifically about making sure the reader cares about what you write. Riegel has produced two collections of poetry, Castaway (2010) & What the Mouth Was Made For (2013) both published by FutureCycle Press located down in Georgia.&...Read Full Post »

Just a heads-up if anyone is interested. Author Lorrie Moore will present her work tomorrow night, Monday the 28th, @ 8:00 in Sykes Hall on the St. Lawrence University campus. I assume she'll read selections from her new book of short stories, Bark. I've read two books by Moore, the collection of short stories Self-Help, & the novel A Gate at the Stairs. Funny, acidic, casual mastery o...

Hey, faithful friends & fans, we are back. Just sent out our latest issue of Barbaric Yawp, January 2014, volume 17, number 1. Mailed it out in April, sure, but at least it's done. 2013 was a meltdown. Working on the April 2014 issue now, which I expect to have out in May. By July I expect to be fully caught up. Then we'll see about chapbooks.
Thanks to everyone who has stuck by us. We plan to do more on the website, inclu...Read Full Post »
