Sal Salasin has died

Sure, most of you have no idea who that was, but I had many email exchanges with him more than ten years ago when he published some of my poems in RealPoetik.

here's a link to some of his poetry

and also here

here's the news You can find the poems he accepted from me in the 1998 and 2002 archives. They are very early efforts, including the first version of "Mrs. Grape" (later published in Eclectica). RealPoetic was sent out periodically featuring one poet.

I may have copies of our email exchanges with my old compuserve files. He was very kind and generous to a very green writer.
