The Choir Competition Continues

14 Apr

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

The moment we have all been waiting for is almost upon us. Well – that is perhaps a rather grand promulgation for what is, essentially, the culmination of a somewhat juvenile practical joke. Hershel – the architect of this connivance – is no doubt watching from the wings with interest. As the Hawkins College Choir emerge from the nave, Head Porter, Professor Duke and I strain to see if any evidence of our stratagem can be observed.

I am somewhat ashamed to say that I am delighted to see that they look rather like I feel – heavily sleep deprived.

UFO Gigolo features my trio of poems, “Three Dreamers”

3 Apr

Eric Robert Nolan, Author

I was honored today to see my first poems published at UFO Gigolo.  Stephen Jarrell Williams, who is also Editor of Dead Snakes, kindly featured “Three Dreamers” there.

Check out UFO Gigolo.  It’s damned fun.  It focuses specifically on poetry in the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror.  I am currently enjoying three poems there by contributor Alan Catlin.

If you’d like to peruse “Three Dreamers,” and you didn’t see them yesterday over at Dead Snakes, you can find the set of three poems here:
