Editorial Note

We must advise of two errors in the Lyre/Liar Long Paddock contents as advertised in the hard copy of the issue. The poem by John Tranter, “Lost Weekend in Boca Raton”, does not appear here, and will be published instead in the next issue, The Naked Writer (Southerly 73.3), and an article by Christine Townend, “The Cat Experiment”, which appears in this edition of the Long Paddock, and which should have been listed in the hard copy as doing so, was discovered to have mysteriously dropped from the list too late to be re-inserted before printing. Our apologies to our readers, to John and Christine, and to the gremlin whom we have so evidently offended.

    It’s been awhile since I’ve really liked one of John Kinsella’s poems, but “Birth on the Road to Gubbeen” is excellent and well-worth waiting for.
