You might win something if you can guess who they are. The contributors, that is. Not the monkeys.
In the meantime, there is a terrific short story by Kij Johnson that has nothing to do with Mother Goosed or Mother Goose, but has a lot to do with monkeys. Click here to visit Kij Johnson’s Website and read her short story, 26 Monkeys, Also The Abyss. It won a 2009 World Fantasy Award.
So, you’ve read Mother Goosed and then read it again, but Spring is still not here. You have cabin fever really bad and need some release. Head over to Carolyn’s Coffee Connection, 1351 52nd Street, Kenosha, WI, on Friday, February 19th at 7:00 p.m. for a free event, Be Exposed!, an evening of art, poetry, and music.
