Sein und Werden

Very excited and pleased that the online issue of Sein und Werden (Memento Mori) is now up. There is an amazing collection of stuff there – words and art and all kinds of crazy stuff. I dig it. You can dig it too by clicking on the link on the right.

I will be saying a lot more about the print issue when I have read it – I have got the Witch’s Keys in this. There is, as always, a very exciting line-up in print – so looking forward to this very much. Link on right for getting your unworthy mitts on this. And you should.

Anyway, for now, the online SuW showcases some art I did called ‘Postcard of the Hanging’. I was mightily pleased to find it on the same page as Mr McLean’s poem ‘death’s entrance’ – excellent, of course, but also so perverse that god gets a capital G. And what a bargain (for you, dear reader) – you can simply click this link and see/read both. And I think fitting that the two should be together – for it was the voices in Mr McLean’s head that told me to hang naked woman in my cellar (they were more than willing, and all was consensual, so very glad to have ignored my therapists advice not to do such things).

There is also a review of David McClean’s Cadaver’s Dance by editor Rachel Kendall – you can read that here – you should – and then you can buy it – which you can do here or here or here – you should.

You can also find a link to some other poems at SuW – and why would you not want to read something called rat-foetus blues? (Not wanting to give anything away, but I creamed the screen when I got to the fifth.)

Fantastic, juxtaposotion of your image and McLean words. Astounding effect as the two echo each other. Chilling and brilliant.
