Published for a Day

Just quickly then. Wordriot has uploaded links to over 60 free downloadable short story collections and novels as part of their Published for a Day project. So if you’re reading this before midnight on 7 June 2010, US Eastern Standard Time (give or take), then follow that there link and get downloading.

And yes, I mention this because Heroes and Civilians is among the assembled throng of words and such. But not only because of that. My recomendation would be to start with everyone else’s books. Mine you already know where to get. (hint: you can get it here).

You still here?

EDIT: So I downloaded 16 manuscripts before I got download fatigue, but I’m pretty keen to get started what I’ve got, including J. Ryan Stradal’s The Incapables, about a found poetry competition and the poets who try to have their poetry found; Dawn Corrigan’s The Power of a Little Green Mask, about two kids who pretend to be superheroes; Ron Singer’s Out of the Office Until… about things going wrong at work; and Tyler Stoddard Smith’s Rap Battles with Emily Dickinson because it’s called Rap Battles with Emily Dickinson.


Poet. Author. Beard. Husband. Dad. Four chickens. Dog. Cat. I can sometimes fix my lawnmower.

Quelle Grammage!
only a fan of 2/3s of the folk in this pic but mesmerised by the story @angustrumble relates below it. . . . I watched last evening’s general election coverage (ABC, natch) in the company of a high Commonwealth official, among others in an undisclosed location, whose name, it soon emerged, may not appear on the electoral roll for reasons of national security. I confess that gave me a bit of a thrill. Canberra: Bless! However, it was also fascinating, extraordinary, in due course to witness that person’s several mobile phones evidently going bonkers, and the measured plans, contingencies, forecasts, blue books of an entire federal bureaucracy duly (one presumed) shredded, turned upside down, just like that. Nothing at all was said, I should emphasise. One simply observed the body language, which was moderately graphic. Whichever way you look at it, this has been an astounding personal victory for Prime Minister Scott Morrison. He believes in miracles, the sexy thing. Pre-polling methodologies in this country, meanwhile, have quite obviously met with serial unforced error on a colossal, epic scale. Who would ever pay them good money again? On my way home, I collided with the (ex-)campaign manager of one of the independent ACT Senate candidates who was alone, drunk and in despair. The campaign manager, that is, not the candidate. This was at about half past eleven on the corner of Jardine and Eyre Streets in Kingston, right next to the rubbish tin, you know, the rectangular green one. He told me he wanted to burn everything down, which was worrying enough, but then he suddenly hurled his mobile phone into the gutter—smashed it to bits—and staggered off into the night. I found myself wondering: Who would touch politics with a barge pole? I should add that this frightening encounter left me, literally, picking up his bits and bobs, then dutifully popping them in the bin. Responsible, me. Back home, I had a cuppa and played patience. I’m not kidding. . . . #Repost @angustrumble with @make_repost
A chance op shop encounter with this Death Liger Lion of Chaos duelmasters card case has done NOTHING to help my attempts to not buy one of this sucker’s namesake toys on ebay. #duelmasters #deathliger #deathligerlionofchaos #metalasfuck #toys

They come up after rain. I often wonder how they feel lying under the ground at right angles to their purpose. #chewton #railspike
