Cats and Dogs

May 1, 2011

The Cats and Dogs are online, and a very lively bunch they are, too.

This issue has been fun to edit – though selection was difficult.  Plenty of high-quality runners-up, who I hope won’t feel too discouraged at not quite making it.

Apologies for not blogging for a while – I was away for quite a bit of the month. Fans of Mr Bentzman will be pleased to know that he arrived back home safely. I think there are still further tales to be told of his travels. For his essay this month, Bruce did not contribute to the Cats and Dogs theme (but instead has given me the excuse to include a video of some thirties big band jazz). Those who would like to read Bruce on the subject of dogs, however, should look at a piece he wrote for Snakeskin many years ago,  his obituary for Boris, the huge Newfoundland who  for a long while was part of his family.

Please note the announcement that July Snakeskin will be a short poems issue – eight lines maximum. I’ll write more about this later.
