Some Interviews of Interest

I've recently posted a couple of interviews that should be of interest to readers here.  You can check them out at Hub Pages.

The first is an interview with Patrick Todoroff, author of Running Black.

The second is an interview with speculative poet and fiction writer (amongst the many other roles he plays), David C. Kopaska-Merkel.  You'll find a video there of Kopaska-Merkel reading some of his own poetry, accompanied by art from Dreams and Nightmares, the speculative poetry magazine he edits.

I'll have more of these coming up in the future, so keep an eye out.

Catching Up

Since I got back to Singapore from Shanghai, I've been able to do a bit of catching up on my reading.  While I've read several books (I'll review some of those lately), I think what I've enjoyed most has been catching up on the magazine subscriptions that have come in while I was away (3 months' worth of 'em).  And, best of all, I've still got several to go, so I've got things to look forward to.

I just finished the most recent (April-June 2012) issue of Star*Line today, the official magazine of the Science Fiction Poetry Association, and found lots of good things there (including reviews of a couple of books I intend to buy). "How Things Change," by James Door, had me laughing out loud.  I really enjoyed that piece.
