It seems that our contributors have approached 2018 with
great enthusiasm and started producing books galore!
First we hear from Bruce Harris whose new book of stories
The Guy Thing - which he has published to raise money for Huntington's
Disease charities - is now out (excerpt featured this month). His partner of
over thirty years, Anthony, was diagnosed with Huntingtons Disease in
October 2016 and since then Bruce has been working to raise money for
Huntingtons Disease research. The book is
Bruce's stories are excellent as you will know if you've
read any of the ones we have featured in the past. Here.
Adam Kluger has a new illustrated collection of flash
fiction: Desperate Times: Short Stories (45 stories) which, he says:
"Has miraculously been published by a wonderful French Publisher, Belphegor
Editions. It's available
Amazon as a paperback and is soon to be translated into French for the
French Book Market".
Also new on the market from one of our contributors is
Gary Beck's short story collection Now I Accuse. "Diving deep into love,
enmity, compassion, and regret, acclaimed poet Gary Beck brings us through the
complexities of life with his brilliant collection". Find it at
Bruce Harris's book The Guy
Thing is out, as mentioned above, and we are lucky to have an excerpt from
it to whet your appetite. It's a story of school days - but relevant to life at
any age. Read Us and Them.
JD DeHart brings us a piece of
"Prose Poetry" this time, I'm in a quandary as to where it should go. Should it
be in the Prose or the Poetry section? Well, it's here now and it's called
Green Sandal Monologue.
J.B. Pick started a satirical
literary journal called "POINT" back in 1957. In this article from the first
edition (which hardly anyone read) we meet Adam Picklewit and John Charlatan,
stars of the book "A Land Fit For 'Eros" which also came out in that year. You
now have the chance to find out about The True History of Vacuism - an
entirely new art movement..
Orbindu Ganga has another poem for
us this time and this one is about a close encounter of the amorous kind. The
title is Touch me not ... .
KJ Hannah Greenberg returns to
poetry this month. She has created these three intricate poems: Clouds of
Bad Attitude Precede Rainbows, When Adopting Great Dangers and Least He
Cattail Jester was last with us in
2016 when he was starting out as a published poet. He has stuck with it and is
making waves. Here are three of his latest poems: Glider, Routine
Creature and Tongue in Cheek.
Jenny Lu is an imaginative poet who
contributed to Winamop last year. She's back in 2018 with two super new poems
Ready, Row and Butterfingers . I hope that you will enjoy
It's funny how things ebb and flow isn't it? Everyone's

month. If you have a story in you I'd love you to send it in to Winamop. The

I already have lots of poetry for March.. let's hope we
can find some fiction (or fact) too!
See you next time.
Winamop was conceived on a
whim, is run on a shoestring, ignored by the many, loved by the few and has
continued unabashed since 2003.
