This month, Kind of a Hurricane Press has published its best of 2013 poetry and fiction in an annual anthology, Storm Cycle. Editors A. J. Huffman and April Salzano selected pieces from both the print magazines and online journals that they felt were ‘truly special and deserved extra recognition’. I’m delighted that three of my pieces – Landmass, Snowball Effect and Twenty Questions – were picked for the anthology and are published alongside some great poems and flash fiction. Among my favourites were ‘Nocturnal Syllables’ by Serena Wilcox, which describes the bleakness of wilderness and a beautiful sense of finality, and ‘The Things’ by Jon Bennett, a soliloquy by a man reflecting on his doomed relationship in a poignant stream of consciousness. Definitely worth a read with its great range of poetry and prose.
