Thank ye, Graeme

My buddy Graeme Phillips has been publishing some of my older work in chapbook form as his contribution to the Lovecraftian apa, Esoteric Order of Dagon. He is now going to include ye above poem illustrated by Jeffrey Thomas--but neither Jeff nor I can now remember in whut small press journal it was publish'd! He plans on a print run of just 50 copies, thirty of which need to go to ye EOD; so there will be few to spare, but if he has any extras left over he wou'd like to sell them for five or ten quid @. His email is
This new booklet will be entitled Antient Dreams--and he be ye Contents:

Dang! That's a lot of old stuff. I shall have to pinch me nostrils as I peruse it, methinks. I mean, some of it ain't stellar. The opening lines of "My Worms," for example, go something like
"I like worms, indeed I do.
I like them fat, with lots to chew."
