The Five-Two and Best of the Net 2015

© by Gerald So | | 7:00 A.M.

This July, I'm submitting six Five-Two poems for Sundress Publications' 2015 Best of the Net anthology consideration. Of course, I'm biased. I think all Five-Two poems are the best. That's why I publish them after all. So I'm giving Five-Two visitors a vote.

July 1–7, 2015, the Five-Two Twitter account @PoemsOnCrime will tweet links to all fifty-two eligible poems (published July 1, 2014–June 30, 2015) with "2015 Best of the Net" noted. Favorite the tweets to vote for the poems. On July 8, I will submit the three most-Favorited poems along with three of my choice.

If you follow @PoemsOnCrime, you're more likely to see the Best of the Net tweets when they appear, but you don't have to be a Follower to vote.

Thank you for participating. Good luck to all.

DeMarco Marks Ten Years at Mysterical-E

Joe DeMarco informed me that, with the April 2015 Mysterical-E, he marks ten years as the site's editor.

I've been Mysterical-E's TV and film columnist for almost eight years. This issue's column ties into Joe's milestone, looking at two of my favorite series that have aired ten seasons or longer, NCIS and Bones.

Congratulations, Joe.

Because I like a good pun as much as anyone, a spontaneous call for May 4th Star Wars-themed poems resulted in this one by Elizabeth Lash:
