Bent lizard?

No, not a bendy lizard, but a lizard in BENT magazine - or, more accurately, my short story The Lizard King which has been accepted to appear in Issue 4.

The story is based on the Russian version of the old 'frog princess' fairy tale and is deliberately written as a modern fairy tale itself. It tells the story of three brothers who still live at home, until their parents lose patience and give them one call each on a mobile phone to find their true love and move out. All goes well until Patrick, the youngest of the three, dials the local pet shop and has to pretend he wants to buy a lizard.

The story should be available in mid-May but I'll keep everyone posted as soon as I have a definite date.
