And Also, for Poe’s Birthday. . . .

So, shortly after I posted my birthday remembrance for Edgar Allan Poe, below, what should appear in the ol’ electronic in-box but this, from Editor Maria Kelly:  “Thank you for submitting your story ‘The Farmer in the Well’ to THE WERE-TRAVELER for The Shadows Only Hide the Monsters issue.  I am accepting it for the issue.  I like that it blends both Poe and Lovecraft elements.”  This was another one of those “at the last minute” submissions, sent just last Tuesday for a Wednesday deadline for THE WERE-TRAVELER’s “Tribute to H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe” themed January issue in the Micro Fiction (100 to 500 words) category.  “The Farmer in the Well” is itself a reprint, having first appeared in the original CTHULHU HAIKU (Popcorn Press, 2012 — cf. December 4 2012, et al.).

The acceptance email went on to say that the issue, with story, “should go live within the next 1-4 days.”  For information, and link, check back here.


  1. How serendipitous with Poe & HPL! Congrats, and I look forward to reading it on line, Jim.

  2. Hi Marge, thanks! I thought it was a great coincidence (though between you and me, the story is probably closer to HPL, at least overtly, than EAP . . . though if one thinks about it. . . .) and mentioned that to the editor too. But watch this space for availability possibly sooner than we think!
