John McKernan and Ricky Garni
John McKernan and Ricky Garni have new poems published in the Summer 2012 issue of Otis Nebula. John’s “Maybe” is a list poem with each line beginning with… you guessed it… ‘maybe’. I like ‘Maybe every number in the universe is contained within the number 1’ most. How about you? Ricky’s “Ceres” tells us about a boxer named… you guessed it… ‘Ceres’ (but is this his real name?). The poem also reminds us that planets that are barely discernible ‘still cast a shadow’ (but are we really talking about planets?).
|| Ricky Garni’s poetry was published in Issue #16 of Cha.
Shivani Sivagurunathan‘s short story “Catching Iguanas”, first published in her collection Wildlife on Coal Island and later reprinted in the November 2011 issue of Cha, has now been translated into Japanese and can be read on Birds Singing in Englishes. Tai Dong Huai’s short story “New Babies” and Sushma Joshi’s short story “Betrayal”, both first published in Cha, were also translated into Japanenese and are available on Birds Singing in Englishes.
