A Little Eastern Style...

I have never been a big fan of poetry, and when someone starts talking about haiku, it's true, my eyes do begin to glaze over, but (for some reason I now don't recall) I wrote a tanka a few months ago called nelle ombre, and I now find it in the November print edition of Scifaikuest.

I know, the website itself isn't any great shakes, but I'm fairly impressed with the production of the magazine itself - a clean, glossy colour cover; perfect bound - and it's something different to add to my publication CV.

I may never write another tanka, so go on, get it while it's hot.

As The King would say, "Tanka very much."

Hey, Mr. Ross, welcome to the SDP family. We're a noisy, confused lot, but having a good time.

I have a couple of books out on the SDP shelves along with stories in a few of the magazines.

Ian - poor, very poor... :o)

Marva - you seem to be carvin' out a nice niche for yourself. Well done.
