My Green Man poem "A Weed-Crowned King" (dedicated to [personal profile] cybermule ) has just been published in Dark Mountain #11. My contributor's copy came in the post this week. This is a new market to me, a journal of eco-minded prose, poetry and art. I'll be at the launch in Bristol next month, and might do a reading (the poem's mercifully short).

The nightbell* tolled two am a few nights ago. As if on cue a crow glided across the estate, perched noisily in the eucalyptus tree outside my block, and cawed. Twice. You just needed Vincent Price reciting down on the towpath to complete the scene.

Just about to start reading Sylvia V. Linsteadt's post-apocalyptic/folkloric novel "Tatterdemalion" (thank you, H <3). Gorgeous illustrations by Rima Staines, more of her art can be found here.

*For new readers, the "nightbell" is a nearby clocktower or church I've as yet only heard, not found.  I've been procrastinating looking for it! One less city mystery, this is what I tell myself...
