Illusory Flowers in an Empty Sky

Barry Graham, Scottish Novelist, Essayist and Poet

by Barry Graham

My short story The Temp Typist's Tale is published on Dockyard Press's Harbourmaster's Loug. It's a story of sexism, class struggle and different realms of power.

My publisher, Dockyard Press, has a blog called The Harbourmaster's Loug, which, since starting in November, has published work by an impressive variety of writers. From me there's an essay about why I left America and returned to Glasgow after 22 years, a short story updating William Hope Hodgson's Carnacki the Ghost-Finder to contemporary Scotland, and a poem.

There's fiction and poetry by Bart Lessard, Tony Black, daishin stephenson, Lisa Mooncat Stormler, Babs Nicgriogair and Tracy Taggart. There's Scottish political commentary by Xeno Albannach... and something that defies category by Johnny Shaw.

The Harbourmaster's Loug usually publishes twice a week, so I recommend subscribing to its RSS feed.
