Poems: Ausema's at Raven & Mine at The Fifth Di

I'm a little late in posting news of an acceptance I received on May 29 from The Fifth Di. In beginning to write this entry, it dawned on me that the acceptance was for the June issue. I dashed over (in the virtual sense) to check it out, and, lo and behold, the poem is already online. Would that all my submissions had the same acceptance to publication speed! (I won't speak about the one I've been waiting 4 years to see in print. Well, okay, here's a hint. The magazine is named after a famous horror writer.)

In any case, the accepted poem is entitled "When Robots Found Religion," and is available here:


In other poetry news, I just added Daniel Ausema's SF poem Machines Tend the Abandoned Fields to the poetry contents at Raven Electrick. Daniel's story "City of Games" appeared in Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic.
