"Five Rivers in Hades" is a sequence of five vignettes, and a different version of the Lethe vignette was published six years ago in Everyday Genius (a beautiful zine, now defunct). It's kind of a lyric sequence, not for everyone, and I've hardly sent it out anywhere, but earlier this week got a snippy reply from a magazine saying they don't print previously published material. So I'd just decided not to send it out any further, when I got this nice acceptance from Nicolette Wong at A-Minor, a small elegant zine that I've always wanted to be in. They "lean toward the lyrical, ecentric, ambivalent, and wildly imaginative." They like "surrealist dreamscapes." It will be out in their January 2018 issue. I've suddenly got a lot of flash lined up between now and spring.
For atmosphere, here's an illustration of Styx that Gustav Doré did for The Divine Comedy.
