Some things are so obvious that you might overlook them. But the ever alert Ms Miranda Gaw has noticed that the place for a Little Magazine in this century is somewhere among the internets. Issue #1 then, of Peter Parasol. And no, I didn't know that about Stevens, either.

Enter MYLES singing 'Brian O' Linn':
"Brian O' Linn had no breeches to wear,
So he bought him a sheep-skin to make him a pair;
The skinny side out, and the woolly side in,
'They are cool and convanient,' said Brian O' Linn."
(locks door of cabin) Now I'll go down to my whiskey-still. It is under my feet this minute, bein' in a hole in the rocks they call O'Donoghue's stables, a sort of water cave; the people around here think that the cave is haunted with bad spirits, and they say that of a dark stormy night strange onearthly noises is heard comin' out of it - it is me singing "The Night Before Larry was Stretched." Now I'll go down to that cave, and wid a sod of live turf under a kettle of worty, I'll invoke them sperrits - and what's more they'll come.
