Two new pieces up, and a poem sale

My poem “After the Mistress of the Copper Mountain,” a queer retelling of one of my beloved childhood stories, is up at Through the Gate. This poem is dedicated to Shweta Narayan. My notes about the poem are at the website. This issue also contains work by Sonya Taaffe, Mari Ness, Michele Bannister, Jack H. Marr, and Brittany Warman. It’s wonderful. Thank you, Mitchell!

The podcast of “Giant,” my magic realist piece about the death of Alan Dundes, is up at Toasted Cake today. Hope you enjoy – and many thanks to Tina Connolly for buying and recording it.

My short poem “Scatter and return,” dedicated to Saira Ali, has been accepted for publication at Cascadia Subduction Zone (Aqueduct PRess).
