MatchbookÂ has a very unique project where they publish stories as Google Ads. Mine is about Velella, or By-the-Wind Sailors. They’ve always fascinated me, not least because theyÂ look like blue upside-down hearts. Read Velella, Velella and the entire Volume 4 of Ad Stories.
I have a new micro prose piece up at New South Journal today. Another retelling of the always retellable Alice in Wonderland. Before she went to space, Alice Ate Mushrooms. She collected asteroids from the belt, saved stars, spilled milk, spun dust, fished for stars, and jumped into tea.
A happy belated New Year’s. It’s the Year of the Monkey! Here is an amazing video of some very zen snow monkeys.
Some new Twitter fiction this week, mixing up Alice in five different wonderlands. Her adventures involve the Queenâ€™s tarts, a dropped ball, borrowed shoes, her magic looking glass, and a house with edible eaves.
These stories were published in 7×20, a long-running Twitter fiction and poetry magazine that is currently edited by Julia Patt.
I have a tiny superhero poem called Dragon Girl that will be included in this yearâ€™s Dwarf Stars Anthology. Thank you to whoever nominated my poem!

This poem originally appeared in Ideomancer back in December.
