Rhysling Anthology, Bubba Claus Contract Received
Two quick items for today, the first being that THE 2015 RHYSLING ANTHOLOGY has arrived. This is the book of nominees for the Science Fiction Poetry Association’s annual Rhysling Award for short (50 lines or less) and long poetry, in which I have one entry in the short category, “Beware of the Dog” (see March 16, et al.), a tale of werewolves and working-class values originally published in GRIEVOUS ANGEL in September 2014.
Then, in the electronic mailbox, the contract came for “Bubba Claus Conquers the Martians,” a jolly Christmas tale (with zombies) to be published in Upper Rubber Boot Books’s upcoming “anthology of fiction and poetry,” THE MUSEUM OF ALL THINGS AWESOME AND THAT GO BOOM (see February 16). “Bubba Claus Conquers the Martians” originally appeared in Yard Dog Press’s HOUSTON, WE’VE GOT BUBBAS in 2007.
