Haiku, Mythology and a new Shoreline

This week I have two pieces in the Japan Times. One is a look back at haiku master Basho’s classic work The Narrow Road to the Deep North, the other is a review of the final part in Lian Hearn’s The Tale of Shikanoko quadrilogyThe Tengu’s Game of Go. I’ve already reviewed parts 1, 2 and 3. Both Basho and Hearn are worth checking out if you’re looking for something to read.

Also out now is issue 5 of Shoreline of Infinity. In addition to the usual amazing stories, artwork, articles and reviews, I’m also delighted that my story ‘The Revolution Will Be Catered’. The story arose from a conversation with my friend Thom Day who makes his Shoreline debut as a reviewer in this issue. You can get it as a print magazine or as an ebook over at the website.
