the rolling hills and vast skyscapes

Man, look at me being all Posty McPosterson over here. But I have to promote the newest issue of The Light Ekphrastic, because I'm featured in it: my stories "The Experiment" and "Bohemia" are paired with artwork by Karen Steele. It's super cool and a direct link to my entry is under Published Works.

TLE is a journal that pairs writers and artists up to collaborate on new stuff, which is a really cool idea that I wanted every part of. It's based on the concept of ekphrasis, which I'll let the website explain:

Ekphrasis, or ecphrasis  is the graphic/dramatic description of a visual work of art. In ancient times it referred to a description of any thing, person, or experience. The word comes from the Greek -ek  and -phrasis, verb ekphrazein, to proclaim or call an inanimate object by name.

Cool, huh? Now go ye forth and read.
