A FEW HOLIDAY COMMENTS

Since I noted the demised of MURKY DEPTHS I learned about four other magazines that were paying markets for poetry have folded. On the other hand another dead market,ABANDONED TOWERS . I bring this up for this reason.

A BRIEF OBITUARY

I am sad to hear that the outstanding British df/h ezine and important showcase for poetry MURKY DEPTHS. To me its amazing as to how quickly a new ezine like MURKY DEPTHS Many of the poems it publishes are nominated for RHYSLINGS and other awards. can quickly become an important showcase for poetry. Its an interesting contrast to long established magazine like ASIMOV'S publish a vast number of poems and it cant get a single Rhysling nomination. There is a moral out there but I am damned if I can see it. I would love to see comments on the topic.
