Poem Published in the October Issue of THE SCAREALD

My dark speculative poem ""The Redcap of Dunnor Peel" has been published in Issue 2 of The Scareald, available to purchase as an e-version here.

Now, don't confuse "The Redcap of Dunnor Peel" with "Redcap of Glamtallon", the latter being my short story slated for publication in the March 2013 issue of Cover of Darkness. There are similarities between poem and story, since both were inspired by the borderland tales of murderous dwarfs known as redcaps, but there are differences as well. I like to think of the poem as something of a preamble to the story. The poem doesn't really stray from the standard redcap lore, while the story adds a few more elements and goes a bit farther.

Even though the story was written first, the poem has been published first. Such is the way of the publication world.
