Also what would (will?) be my debut novel, Thingummy.com, An Insider's Story, was shortlisted for the 2018 Guernica Prize from Guernica Editions. I'd blurb it like this:
Four young people move to San Francisco to start a search engine company and change the world. It's the late 90s, Google doesn't yet exist, and the tech world thinks it can build Utopia. But can they master the romantic entanglements even before they get to the professional challenges?

  • "Thucydides in Exile" Vol 18/19
  • "Anchises" Vol 18/19
The Rotary Dial
The poems are all dramatic monologues by figures from classical history or mythology who emigrate to Canada. Go figure. Except for the occasional bit of light verse, such as the Game of Thrones poem, and well, there's this:

Double Dactyl 
"Auden thought the triolet was too trivial a form to bother with..." - James Fenton 
Practally dactally
W. H. Auden
Mastered his verse forms with
Scarcely a miss. 
Some he found slight. There's no
Abecedarius
No triolet, and he
Didn't write this.
Small magazine links have a way of rotting. Should you notice any, feel free to comment below and I'll try to fix it.
