Time marches on and now there isn't much of 2018 left..
how did that happen?
Firstly, one parish notice: JD DeHart's new book
Five Year Journey is out now.
Let's get the November edition on the streets before
Christmas comes round again!
This month the wheel has turned and we have a bucket-full
of poetry but not so many stories, I just can't win. But to balance things up
we have some art photography from story-smith Martin David Edwards. It's a
little different to our usual fare, see what you think.
Off we go!
Harry Downey wrote this piece some
time ago, he sent it to me and I lost it. It's so small it went down between

KJ Hannah Greenberg has a moving

Read Change, Too, is Good.
Martin Green is here to tell us
about A Day In March. Yes, I know it's November but you can't rush these

Boozehounds Last Song before maybe finding some hope in
JD DeHart has three new poems for
us this month. They are called: Glossophobia - Jab and Costumes.
By the way, he doesn't wear his underpants outside his tights.. that's
John D Robinson is also back with
new material. Some bad things have happened but the poems are all the better
for it. Try The Bums Dispersed - The Same - The Hollow People - The
Excercise and Much More.
