Coyote Musings
Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises

What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?

The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Now, I know there are a lot of talented writers and poets on my f-list...

Call for Stories & Poems: November 2005 Issue of The Harrow

Theme: Reptiles

Submit By: The end of September. The earlier, the better.

Length & Rules: The usual Harrow guidelines and payment rates apply. If a story, the work must be horror or fantasy with the presence of magic or the supernatural either explicit or implicit within the plot. If a poem, the work must contain some horror or fantasy element or evoke an atmosphere of horror or fantasy.

If you already have a reptile-themed story under review at The Harrow, we'll automatically consider it for this themed issue.

More Information:

The reptiles can be heroes or monsters; funny or deadly; intelligent or feral; metaphorical or actual; real, extinct, or mythical. The reptiles should be, in some way, a significant part of the plot and not just thrown in for atmosphere.

Don't confuse amphibians and reptiles. To keep it simple: reptiles have dry, scaly skin; amphibians have moist, smooth skin (but maybe warts). Reptiles fertilize eggs internally and lay hard-shelled, amniotic eggs on land (a few give birth to live young); amphibians fertilize eggs externally and lay jellylike eggs in water. Baby reptiles look much like adult reptiles; baby amphibians go through stages of development starting with a larval stage. Mythically, a dragon is probably a reptile, whereas a sea serpent is probably an amphibian....

We love dinosaurs, but mind your genres. Jurassic Park is science fiction — that is, technology revived the dinosaurs, not magic. If you want to see what a "horror" dinosaur story might look like, check out The Harrow's 2002 story "Ann's Dragon."
