Bewildering Stories

This week Ludek's Dawn is up in Bewildering Stories. It was inspired by Wojtek Jacobson's photo Sunrise beyond Belot Strait, also appearing alongside. Do go and read it.

Don Webb, the editor of BwS said: You have the right idea about poetry, but other contributors -- with the notable exception of those from Britain and Ireland -- seem to think that poetry should be either prose with line breaks or else some incomprehensible balderdash. Thank heaven for you and John Stocks and Doug Pugh.

I love the work of both these writers and I am so happy to have been compared favourably with them.

The photograph is from, My name is Ludomir/ mam na imie Ludomir by Maciej Krzeptowski and Wojciech Jacobson and is in Polish and English.

Ludomir Maczka was a geologist and master yachtsman and explorer who led an exceptional life which I have been privileged to touch, through his friends.

I'm off on holiday now... Lucky me!
