Poem in APHELION'S "The Best Poetry and Filk Music of 2010"
My lycanthropic dark speculative poem "Howling on the Moor" has been included in Aphelion's "Best Poetry and Filk Music of 2010". Interesting pick. I'm happy this one was chosen, since it's one of my favourites. I tried to let the cunning of real wolves inspire me when I described the actions of my hunting lycanthropes. Their leader leads a brave but doomed tracker out onto the moor, drawing the wretch away from human habitation and potential reinforcements before the whole pack closes in and tears him to shreds.
