the Alpha and the Omega

I was in the first issue of the wonderfully sick and twisted Scared Naked Magazine (Dec 2002) It appears I am also in what may turn out to be the last (June 2004). The magazine has gone on “indefinite hiatus” for what the publisher calls “personal and printer issues”.

One reason I enjoyed being published in this magazine is that it was one of several “horror” magazines that Locus Magazine followed, so I appeared in their annual Index of Science Fiction. I was only paid $5 for each poem (+ 1 copy of the magazine), but appearing in that list made me feel special. (Someday I will get there for a story rather than a poem.)
