I Snuck Merfolk Into Stone Telling!

Yes, I did. The tailed people come hidden in a poem, a 700+ words prose poem to be exact, A Masquerade in Four Voices. Of course there are more than just four voices in the poem, but who said poets should be able to count stuff accurately? Anyway, you can hear the poem on the site as well, took a lot of people to make this recording happen, because this poem, it's a dainty creature, only the best will suffice, and to be honest, this one was really demanding since the moment it wanted to be written just like that. A little stubborn, as poems go...

Support the Arts

I guess you all know Strange Horizons, they have been around for ages, publishing high quality fiction, poetry, reviews, columns and articles. For free. And they pay their authors pro rates.

So consider this a signal boost for the Strange Horizons Fund Drive. But check this out, if you donate money--just a little--you are eligible to win one of these prizes! Cool, huh? You could also call yourself a supporter of the arts, and who doesn't want that title?
