Two quick notes: Resurrection Man Poem — And More! – Published in New Grave Robbers Antho; Kurt Vonnegut Contest No. 2
Editor James Ward Kirk has announced that a new anthology, GRAVE ROBBERS, has come out under his own imprint. Originally planned to be published by Static Movement (cf. June 7 – the second anthology noted there, HELL, is also out but, a funny story, in the confusion of changing imprints a story of mine that was going to be there, “The Sidewalk,” was accidentally dropped and — are you ready for something truly weird? — seems to have ended up in GRAVE ROBBERS too! So it goes), GRAVE ROBBERS features both poetry and fiction, including my own poem “The Resurrection Man,” concerning the need for anatomy subjects in medical colleges a few centuries back. “The Resurrection Man” is itself a reprint — a resurrection, if one will — previously appearing in the Edgar Allan Poe/”The Raven” tribute anthology ONCE UPON A MIDNIGHT (Unnameable Press, 1995), now out of print, but risen again can be found in its new home by clicking here. (As also can “The Sidewalk,” cf. just above, originally published in the Fall 1996 edition of TERMINAL FRIGHT, although not really having to do with graves, per se., or robbery.)
And, speaking of SO IT GOES (see March 5, 2, et al.), Max Booth III has announced a new contest, this one for non-writers with Photoshop-type skills, with one or more copies of the Vonnegut tribute anthology offered for prizes. More information can be obtained via the Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing link in the March 2 posting or, to go directly to Max’s newly created “contests only” page, just press here.
