Polyphony 6

So, yes, I have sold my story 'theleeharveyoswaldband' to Deborah Layne (mme_publisher) and Jay Lake (jaylake) for Polyphony 6. It's probably not that hugely surprising, maybe, given the whole Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth chapbook sold to Wheatland Press earlier, but who knows.

I quite like 'theleeharveyoswaldband', because if I had a band, I'd maybe call it that, and as stories go, it's an odd piece about a musician and a girl who bootlegs live shows, and it sits as one of my favourites.

Congrats.

I spend a lot of time making up band names. Lately I've been quite fond of Topless Coroners and 2 Minute Hate.

Re: leeharveyetc
thanks, man.

i probably can't take full cred for 'theleeharveyoswaldband', since there's a band in aus called 'theredsunband' and i sorta nicked the style from them. (they're not a bad band. i saw them open for an art of fighting gig, but the lead had the flu, so i don't think i got the best from them.)

but yeah, i spend my time thinking of band names, too. hemingway's gun is my current favourite...

To be honest, it will depend on the author photos.
