New poem, ‘Packing Tips for Time Travelers,’ in Mithila Review

It’s an honor that my work — “Packing Tips for Time Travelers” — is in the latest edition of the Mithila Review, No. 15!

This is my second poem in this publication, which is out of India. My first work was “Instructions for Astronauts,” which was in Issue 8. The new poem has been selected be a new editorial team, which started with Issue 15. I think Mithila Review does a great job of bringing together interesting writing and writers from around the world.

Thank you to Ishita Singh, the managing editor, and the whole crew at Mithila Review. Check it out.

I’ve been nominated!

More specifically, my poem, “An Offering,” has been nominated for a 2021 Rhysling Award in the category of long poem by the Science Fiction Poetry Association.

The nominations are anonymous, so thank you to whoever nominated my poem.

One thing this means is that the poem is being republished in the 2021 Rhysling Anthology, edited by Alessandro Manzetti. You can pick up a copy, check out all the other great nominees, and support the work of speculative poets on the SFPA website.

Congrats to all the nominees.

A cold December night

Someday, 2020 will make sense. As the year draws to a close, there are a few pre-pandemic “lasts” to remember.

  • Last movie at a movie theater: “1917” on Feb. 2 — Glad I saw it in a theater on a big screen. At the theater I often go to, there is rarely a big crowd for the movies I want to see (and by then “1917” had been out for a while).
  • Last meal in a restaurant: Le Colonne Restaurant at the Hilton Hotel at Leonardo da Vinci International Airport on March 11 — The food was fine — I can’t remember what we had, but tables had been spread apart for social distancing, and there were diners at only about four other tables. We were only there to be sure to get our morning flight out of Rome, leaving the country early as more and more flights were being canceled, including our flights out of Genoa.
  • Last workout at the gym: Feb. 29 — I did some warmups and cooldowns, with a 5K run on the indoor track in between at a time of 33 minutes and 22 seconds
  • Last day working in person at the office: Tuesday, March 3.
  • Last time I had a cold: Maybe sometime in 2019

Merry Christmas!
