published: The Sea King's Reclamation

I completely flubbed my understanding of an exchange earlier (wherein money appeared in my paypal account). See, I didn't quite realize (and again and again forgot to check) that that meant a poem of mine was actually _published_.

Chances are you haven't read "The Sea King's Reclamation". It's over at Quick Fic as of a few days or a week ago. Read! Comment! :D

"He sho' nuff is!"
Does this mean *you're* the real Shogun of Harlem?

And, yes, that's my shameless Last Dragon allusion for the day.

By the way, that's my kind of poetry--tight, economic, well-turned.

Re: "He sho' nuff is!"
I think Harlem and I have a non-aggression pact and that's as far as that goes. ;)

Thank you! :)

I'm in a sort of poetry groove the last few months, and it's great to see it getting out there.

Nice! I hadn't read this one before. I don't know enough about peotry to give a qualified opinion, but I liked it. Strange and a little disturbing!

Congrats!

I need to make some more Southern stuff, yeh?

I had jambalaya last weekend and have been eating gumbo most of the week.

I'm sure it's in there somewhere ;)

Marvelous poem. Just amazing. I just finished a book called The Sea King's Daughter. I was grinning ear to ear reading that.

Thanks :D

Seems "The Sea King's [...]" is a far more popular title than I would have expected. Who was the book by?

It was an extremely popular book. It's by Barbara Michaels, who when not churning out thrillers (and good ones) has a Phd in Egyptology. Most of her books are archiology based. This one was set in Greek Isle of Thera, about the legend of Atlantis. She knows of what she writes. What I liked about it was the humor and a labyrinth

She writes under three names. Under Barbara Mertz, books about ancient Eygpt (non-fiction) Elizath Peters (more well known under that name...The Mummy films were based on them)
