The Lost Librarian’s Grave—coming October 1, 2021.
I am very happy to start the week by announcing that Don and I have chosen Rhonda Parrish’s poem, “The Grotesque,” for The Lost Librarian’s Grave anthology.
Rhonda is a prolific Canadian author and poet. So far, for 2021, she has received several Aurora Award nominations, including for her novel, Hollow, and a Rhysling Award nomination for her poem, “The Luck Eaters.”
Rhonda’s poem reminds me a little bit of Howard Lovecraft’s take on houses in several of his stories. Not exactly but enough that the remembrance made me smile. Probably because I’ve often had strange thoughts myself when I walk by or go into a very old domicile, especially if it appears abandoned.
Things are moving quickly now and we’ll have more announcements over the next few days.
