|21 October 2014. Cullowhee, North Carolina.|
Here's a long interview conducted by writer Josie Cook... She bumped into me in Ohio when I was teaching at the Antioch Workshops last summer. Thank you, Josie!

I'll post some pictures of Norfolk and Athens events soon. But I'm having a good time and doing lots of hiking around the mountains and visiting in the Cullowhee area. I'm probably going to take a quick trip to Jonesborough, TN before I depart.

A story of mine that originally appeared in Postscripts #13 (Winter 2007) is now up at Weird Fiction Review, reprinted with the permission of PS Publishing. It is the rather peculiar result of spending a few days on the island of St. John's, where I once hiked into and along the wild, strange beach of Drunk Bay. Thanks to David Davis and the staff of Weird Fiction for that request!
Go here if you dare.
On the Road
I'm still in the Carolina mountains, visiting family and doing some hiking about and seeing friends. On Wednesday, I'll head to Athens, Georgia. On Thursday, October 16th, I'll be reading from Glimmerglass with long-time friend Philip Lee Williams at 7:00 p.m., Athens Barnes & Noble.

Currently I'm perched on a mountaintop in lovely Cullowhee, North Carolina, where I moved at thirteen, and where family still lives in the realm of Blue Ridge and mist and hummingbirds. I'll be reading from Glimmerglass at the Barnes and Noble in Athens, Georgia on the 16th at 7:00 p.m with longtime friend Philip Lee Williams.
Visit me elsewhere: six poems
- Paul Digby reads "The Wish for Roses" A poem inspired by Fredric Koeppel's lovely, lost aunt. Doesn't Paul have a gorgeous reading voice? And oh, that ominous background...
- I read "The Exile's Track." Video/sound by Paul Digby. Very much a Southerner's poem about the doom of living in the polar lands and lake-effect snows of upstate New York.
- I read "The Nesting Doll." Video/sound by Paul Digby. Adventures of a nesting doll in the sometimes demonic world. Sestina.
- I read "The Birthday Roses." Video/sound by Paul Digby. What are birthday roses?
- I read "In Extremis." Video/sound by Paul Digby. Written about a metaphysical "knowing" when my eldest child was in the hospital with meningitis.
- I read "A Fire in Ice." Video/sound by Paul Digby. Couplets. A riposte to Billy Collins, when he was impertinent enough to think he could take off Emily Dickinson's clothes! And then tell...
Glimmerglass with frangipani
Glimmerglass arrives at Margo Lanagan's house. Glimmerglass with lemon-scented gums. Glimmerglass with frangipani. Glimmerglass with bricks. Evidently it goes well with everything!
