3-Line “Vampette” Taken by Star*Line; Isis to Get a New Dress

They’re not really haiku nor do I usually call them such, but I am fond of writing three-line epigrams with syllable counts approaching, though not necessarily exactly, 5-7-5.  These are fun and, especially, seem from time to time to find homes in STAR*LINE (cf. April 15 this year, May 18 2013, others).  So this afternoon it has happened again, with a three-line mini-epic called “Sign Me Up as Well, Quickly” exploring the borderland between vampirism and the insurance industry accepted for a future issue.  The actual issue it will appear in is not yet decided, but when word comes it will be shared here.

In another item, Isis — that is, THE TEARS OF ISIS — in honor of her turn on the stage as a Stoker® Fiction Collection nominee, is scheduled to come out with an all-new cover reflecting that status.  This may come about fairly quickly according to Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing’s Max Booth III, perhaps as soon as about the beginning of July, but at latest, hopefully, in time for some copies to be shown at NASFiC, the North American Science Fiction convention for those who can’t make it to WorldCon in London this year.  More on this also as it becomes known.


  1. Congrats on the Star*Line sale! I like that you say the poem is more an epigram. Often, I think that what passes for haiku and is so labeled– is just that, syllable count or otherwise. Bravo!
    Great news again about the ISIS collection!
