Morte d'Arthur, poem, Issue 30, June 1, 2015


Birthdate? 1949!
 
When did you start writing? Twice. Once as a young man, which in hindsight was a mistake, and again, in the last five years. Perhaps forty years from now I'll frown on all this too.
 
When and what and where did you first get published? I had a long relationship with Bewildering Stories before I was paid for a poem by Strange Horizons. It opened up possibilities. I kept the cheque.

What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? I'd be embarrassed to call myself an author. The work of professional writers belongs to another world.  
 
What themes do you like to write about? Still working on that. I'm trying out different genres. Still can't write fantasy.
