Wow! Winamop uploaded on the first of the month? What's happened?
It could be because I'm a little distracted at the moment. To the surprise of everyone, including those who wanted to go, Britain seems to be about to leave the European Union.
In case you haven't been following the news, we had a referendum and the "Great British public" voted to leave. A bit like turkeys voting for Christmas I suppose, but I guess we'll have to lump it because it's a democratic decision. One made in the face of an enormous barrage of disinformation from both sides, but a democratic decision none the less.
It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good of course and people have been inspired to put "pen to paper" on the subject. We have a couple of Page 94s this month, one from Martin Friel (maybe it should be Page95?) plus the usual selection of stories and poems for you to enjoy.
Never mind the boll.. I mean politics, back to the important stuff!
It's been a good month for Winamop with our contributors working hard to entertain and inspire you.
Stories first as usual.
We'll start with Donal Mahoney. I always learn things when preparing Winamop. This time I have learned that U.S. KFCs sell more than deep-fried chicken! Gizzards and gravy anyone? No? Well try Chicken Breast or Rump Roast. Saucy but nice!
Martin Green is back with us and this time he brings us the tale of a house guest who has started to outstay his welcome. What can be done? Read A Visit From My Brother Jake.
Now it's time to welcome Jerry Vilhotti back to the fold with a piece of flash fiction. This is about a little sibling needling. It's called No Ears.
Louis Sisto contributed some flash fiction last month, but this time he has a full length story for us. This is a rather unsettling tale called A Sober Mourning.
On to poetry - and it's been a couple of months since we last heard from Richard Schnap [BIO], but now he has returned and he brings as a wistful poem called Suspended Animation.
Neil Ellman has been studying art works and producing poetry to accompany them for some time now. Here we have his latest collection featuring works by Endre Bartos, Hannah Hoch and Tadashi Nakayama.
KJ Hannah Greenberg has a poem for us this time, and I must also inform you that she has a new book out called ,Friends and Rabid Hedgehogs, available from Amazon. The poem is about the trials of The Five to Eight Parent.
Now to our Athens correspondent Sofia Kioroglou who returns with three super little poems. I Try, A War and the rather sad Like the Measles.
Perry L. Powell writes good poetry; ideas captured on the wing. This collection of five poems is called The Mixture As Before. I hope you enjoy it.
What a collection!
Well done all, let's do it again in about a month's time.
I'm looking forward to it.
