Lately, writing has taken the upper hand which he does mainly for his own amusement. He has posted various snatches of prose and poetry on various writers’ sites over the years and has been published in Facets of Friendship—an anthology of work published by the Creative Writers Group (through iUniverse) and online at Australian Writers.

John Irvine is an Old Aged Pensioner in New Zealand with delusions of immortal failure and a cynical view of life. He has a mole under his left arm, and a wife who hates pizza and tripe. He hopes to die painlessly one day without warning, and with a minimum of leakage.  He had a volume of poetry published in 2005 by Zenith Publishing Group: of New Zealand called Man of Stone. It has been positively reviewed in NZ's Takahe magazine by Raewyn Alexander, in Valley Micropress by Tony Chad and given a thorough pizzling by Sam Smith of The Journal in the UK. John's pathetically grateful for all of that. He also has a web site where you can waste some time:  He has been published in a number of print and online magazines, including Australian Reader, Wicked Karnival, Black Ink Horror, Illuminations, Sam Smith’s Select Six, Whispers of Wickedness, Scifaiku, Stylus, the NZ Poetry Society's 2006 haiku anthology and NZ’s own Magazine. And now he may be read in that truly amazing, splendiferous, astounding, heroic online magazine Noneuclidean Café. Oh, yes... and Noneuclidean Press is to publish a volume of poetry about my pet rat Brian some time in 2007, which has been cleverly illustrated by Australian self-confessed teabag squeezing genius Dave Freeman.
