Stuff to read

If you're looking for stuff to read, there's plenty to choose from this month.

The May issue of Roadrunner is up now, including two new haiku by Issa, with commentary and translations.

OG's Speculative Fiction #18 just went on sale. It's a special double issue, including a story by Bruce Golden and poetry by G.O. Clark. Download it for only 99 cents, or buy the paper copy for only $6.50.

The new issue of SP Quill just went out in the mail. It's the first issue since the magazine changed format -- now it's a perfect-bound paperback, full of the same great poetry, including cinquain by Deborah P. Kolodji and J.E. Stanley.

If you were considering buying David Dunwoody's zombie novel Empire, but didn't want to pay full price, now you can get a copy for only $8.20 from Amazon (45% off). It's a great book -- you can read my review of it here.

Just as a side note, the winners of the Balticon 43 Poetry Contest were recently announced. You can see the list of winners here, but I just thought it interesting that a haiku took an Honorable Mention.

I didn't enter Balticon this time. I've done so a couple times in the past but never got anywhere close.
