I'm giving up writing

The world doesn't need any more writers, any more poetry or any more fiction. There's far too much already. Everything that needs to be said has already been said very well. You wouldn't spend your time writing if you knew the world was about to end. So why do it now, when it is?

You heard it first here - I can explain

From Glass Hombre: "Well, I have very exciting news [...] I've just signed a contract with Future Fiction London, an imprint of Creation Books, to publish my novel Balzac of the Badlands" Steve Finbow

Steve Finbow, hotfoot from Japan, started the evening off with a virtuosic, almost musical recital in effect, of an excerpt from his extraordinary 'Balzac of the Badlands'. If that is not a novel in poetry, then...there is no then—it is. (From: There Now: Launch of New Short Stories 1)
