Werewolves, Vampires, October Night to Dawn Received; An Odd Kind of Lagniappe

Today brought NIGHT TO DAWN #24, dated October 2013, with my “Werewolves vs. Vampires” (cf. July 25 2012) in the lead position for poetry.  It had been bought with two Imageother poems, the micro-length “The Werewolf Explains,” — werewolves being notably taciturn creatures — and “Where the Vile Things Are,” a homage of sorts to Maurice Sendak.  “The Werewolf Explains” and “Vile Things,” the latter also with an illustration by Marge Simon on the next page, both appeared in the previous, April 2013 issue of NIGHT TO DAWN.

And then, harking to the post just below, today I received a new copy of the Portuguese version of “The Third Prisoner” as it appeared in the Brazilian I ANTOLOGIA LUSIADAS (2009) courtesy of another “Maurice,” the story’s translator Mauricio R. B. Campos.  The kind of neat thing about the translated version is it even has a couple of footnotes, so, as possibly the oddest lagniappe that’s appeared in this blog thus far, those up on their Brazilian Portuguese may press here and enjoy.

But more to the point, if you like “The Third Prisoner” in any language (or think that you might) consider buying DARK BITS when it’s out where it should appear along with stories by fifty-one other horror writers, all to the best of my knowledge in English.


  1. Wonderful, Jim! Enjoyed (as always) your poem in NIGHT TO DAWN! It’s a great zine for those who enjoy the creatures of the night –human or otherwise, mostly very wicked or very thirsty. 🙂

  2. Marge, thanks. Also for today, I’ll let you be first to know, I decided on the Strawberry Shortcake ice cream. (Plus cake with whipped cram and chocolate AND strawberry sauce.)
