I have moved my blog to a new location, rechristened it with a new name, and begun populating it with new content. Newness!

Just go here:

Hope to see you there!

I'm overhauling my blog, so expect to see no new postings at all for the next 2-3 months whilst I revamp the blog's focus, name, look and back-end. The location is likely to change as well, but if it does I'll post the new link here as soon as may be.

I recently finished a very short story called "Epistolary," which is currently making the rounds for potential publication. Here's an excerpt:

My darkness, my core, my unopened eyes,

I write you this on a sheet of dark matter in a burst of electromagnetic radiation. Forgive my poor script but I am cramped and cumbersome on the surface of this neutron star. Time is dragged down into lethargy and my patience is compressed to a painful disc of anxiety.

The time is not yet right. Time is not yet right. I mark the moments in prisoner’s ticks, my anvil, my rock, my darkened lighthouse. The moments collect on my chest, my belly, my eyes. They are tiny. Dense.

Your rescue is distant as a star. But am I not your magnet, your charm, your strange hero?

I will send this on the next rotation.

It is so hard to move.

Wow. A wacky web test that actually yields accurate results! Or at least, I hope they're accurate, given that I came out as...

You're Prufrock and Other Observations!

by T.S. Eliot

Though you are very short and often overshadowed, your voice is poetic and lyrical. Dark and brooding, you see the world as a hopeless effort of people trying to impress other people. Though you make reference to almost everything, you've really heard enough about Michelangelo. You measure out your life with coffee spoons.
