"Frog-o-Mighty" by Edward Picot


You understand nothing of my schemes, Penguin..."

A mighty tale in three chapters, featuring a megalomaniac frog, a hypnotist penguin, two quarrelling chicks, a bemused goose, a plan so fiendish that it's completely incomprehensible, a pot full of shutting-up phrases and an insatiable lust for mints!

The perfect antidote to that just-after-Christmas feeling.

A touch of the Verbals - The Hyperliterature Exchange, Nov 06


New on The Hyperliterature Exchange for November 2006: a review of 'The Chicken Coup', 'Chopper Drop Out' and 'Underground Station' - three CDs of comedy, poetry and music from Mac Dunlop.

"One respect in which Dunlop differs from earlier performance poets, of course, is his use of new media... His interest in experimentation is apparent on these CDs, where he is constantly playing with sound-effects rather than just presenting us with straightforward recordings of his readings..."

Some fragments of my mum


My mother was eighty earlier this year, which prompted me to create an animated Flash portrait, incorporating three different pictures of her, twenty-one of her most characteristic phrases, and a clacketing noise which is a bit like a typewriter, knitting needles, or out-of-control false teeth.

Saints be Praised?


New on The Hyperliterature Exchange for August 2006: a review of 'Broken Saints', an epic 24-part 12-hour-long Flash-animated comic book, which has been visited on the Web by more than five million people, and has sold more than 10,000 copies on DVD. A new DVD version, distributed by Fox, is published this month.

"Senecan tragedy is a useful point of reference for Broken Saints because it shares the same preoccupation with bloody violence, particularly violence within the family. At the end of Broken Saints a deranged father pulls out one of his daughter's eyes, wires up her brain to the Internet and hangs her on a crucifix made out of computer monitors as part of his attempt to achieve world-domination: a climax so lurid and grotesque that even Seneca might have found it hard to outdo."
