Not Unless They Have Photo IDs: Space and Time and the Zombie Franchise; Peds Proofs Back to Untreed Reads

Only weeks away from the coming election, the Fall issue of  SPACE AND TIME has arrived with a poem of mine in it, “Why Not Let Zombies Vote?” (see July 2).  In it the usual opposition is raised, then countered (“Okay, so they eat people, but isn’t that/ just a choice of diet?”), along with other frankly prejudicial objections (“and don’t be blaming them for the recession.”).  So, indeed why not, and just in time here for early voting?

This is issue #117 of a venerable magazine going back to probably about the time I started writing poetry in a serious manner.  Cf. also October 21 2011 and June 6 2012, below, for notes on another poem of mine, “Monkey See” — the second in what I think of as my King Kong Trilogy (poem #1 was in PAPER CROW, #3 is as yet unpublished) — which was accepted by Poetry Editor Linda D. Addison for the Fall 2011 SPACE AND TIME and went on to appear in the 2012 RHYSLING ANTHOLOGY.

Then in other activity, this afternoon I finished going through the proof sheets for my upcoming e-novelette PEDS (see May 21, et al.).  If all goes well, PEDS should be out before the end of the month — in time, that is, for Halloween giving to friends with a taste for dystopic science fiction — from Untreed Reads Publishing.
