MIPPO, MERMAIDS, AND MORE

So you know how I am really averse to rhyme, and also strongly dislike everything that has to do with mermaids? It’s become something of a competition among certain poets to try to sell us rhymed mermaid poetry – so far, to no avail. If you have ever felt this dreadful urge, fret no more: the MERMAID issue of Stone Telling is for you! Shweta and I will look for the mermaidest, rhymiest poetry to showcase in a special April 1st issue (or, if we can’t resist it, earlier). We’ll also accept limericks, nonsense verse, and assorted ridiculousness, all to be lushly illustrated with artistic B&W photographs of the Mippo as a mermippo, like this:

This is your chance to inflict this marvel of marvels upon the world of extremely serious speculative poetry. Plus, it’s sure to cheer you up on those days when absolutely nothing else does. Almost guaranteed to be better than cats! (Warning: may include cats).

    Just backed the Kickstarter, mainly because I had forgotten about it, but also because I really hope you and Shweta can make the mermaid issue a real thing. I’m dying to see you all get flooded with submissions of epic rhyming mermaid poems. 🙂
