Barbaric Yawp Literary Magazine and MuscleHead Chapbooks


John Berbrich: The World Boneblog #20

Posted by BoneWorld Publishing on May 15, 2016 at 5:25 PM

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.

Also reading the May issue of Poetry magazine, featuring the poets of Australia.  Very impressed so far.  My favorites include Sarah Holland-Batt, Cassie Lewis, & Elizabeth Campbell.  But special mention must be made of Amanda Joy & Petra White.  Their work is excellent; in fact, Petra's poem, an excerpt from "The Wife, Ezekiel & God," practically exploded off the page at me, it's that amazing.  I was really stunned. 

As for Barbaric Yawp, I'm working on the May issue, which should be ready in June.  Catching up, a bit at a time.  Still not taking any new manuscripts for chapbooks--perhaps next year.  

So that's it for today.  The rain just quit, which is fine because it was turning into snow.  The vagaries of spring.
