Well-Dressed Vampiress Finds a Home; One More Hellnotes Review for Torn Realities

Artist /poet Marge Simon, cited in these pages in the past, and I have occasionally done collaborations, most notably in VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE) where she did the cover and interior illustrations.  So it’s happened again — twice!  I had sent her copies of “The Well-Dressed Vampiress (advertisement)” as well as the just-sold “Where the Vile Things Are” (cf. July 23, 25 respectively) in response to some vampire poems she’d showed to me, but also suggested they might be amenable to illustration.   She agreed, and almost immediately had her interpretation of “Vile Things” accepted by NIGHT TO DAWN to accompany that poem there.  Then, after some discussion of where the “Vampiress” with her new portrait might go, she sent them on to Terrie Relf at HUNGUR.  Just one day later, today, Terrie bit (ahem).  “The Well-Dressed Vampiress  (advertisement),” with illustration, is set to appear in HUNGUR in the company of other (from the guidelines) “original works in a rich, decadent, literary artery . . . er, vein.”  Both “Vampiress” and “Vile” are scheduled to see print next spring in their respective publications.

Meanwhile TORN REALITIES has been mentioned once again in HELLNOTES, this time in their own review.  Several stories are briefly described although this time mine, “The Calm,” seems not to be among them.  Hey, not everyone’s gonna have taste 😉 .  But otherwise the review is worth checking out by pressing here.

  1. Indeed! Not bad for a couple of very hot July nights’ work, eh, wot?
