First Sundays Readings Back in Business; New Logo Announced for PMMP

Its summer hiatus having ended with August, the Bloomington Writers Guild (cf. post just below) is back with its regular schedule, including monthly prose readings every first Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. at local bookstore Boxcar Books.  This year’s fall season started with a perhaps more science fiction/fantasy/horror bent than most, with three featured readers, Joan Hawkins (author of CUTTING EDGE:  ART HORROR AND THE HORRIFIC AVANT-GARDE plus a number of articles on film and popular culture), Richard Durisen (Professor Emeritus on Astronomy now writing poetry and short fiction, often with fantasy, dark fantasy, or sf components), and Karen A. Wyle (author of four novels “of science fiction and other genres”).  This was followed by an open mike session for which I’m beginning to run low on sufficiently brief short pieces to read, but for which this time, mindful of the coming of fall, I selected a b0c8c403-07a4-4ac0-9a8e-9c4d3810ee14_PMMP_LOGO300-word opus called “School Nights” in which a young girl learns things definitely not in the standard curriculum.

Als0 yesterday came an announcement from Max Booth III of Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing that they were changing their official logo.  There had been some discussion about it before, but Saturday was the official unveiling which is now shared here.  “PMMP,” we may recall, is the publisher of THE TEARS OF ISIS as well as, also in 2013, the Kurt Vonnegut tribute anthology SO IT GOES with my story “Dead Girls, Dying Girls” in it (cf. April 9 and 24 2013, et al.).
