I've had a sonnet published, with a small amount of actual money attached! I feel quite happy about this. It's in this autumn's issue of Goblin Fruit. I'd read a couple of their back numbers, liked them, decided that it was my sort of magazine and, in a fit of late-night insanity, sent them two sonnets, of which they took one.

Not only that, but it's been reviewed at The Black Gate. The reviewer is C. S. E. Cooney, whose poem, Ride of the Robber Bride, I liked very much in last spring's Goblin Fruit. Here's the review, for posterity:

Graham’s sonnet is… Well. It’s funny! I don’t know if it was meant to be funny. But there’s a rue in that lovelorn confession — “I’m every idiot who’s ever stood/ At dead of night beneath a balcony…” It’s old fashioned. It requires a velvet doublet and a rapier and a fine feathered hat. I liked it!


I don't know if she actually liked it or was just being polite, but she definitely gets it. Henceforward all my poems will come with a dress code.
