Eugen Bacon studied at Maritime Campus, Greenwich University, UK, less than two minutes’ walk from The Royal Observatory of the Greenwich Meridian. Her arty muse fostered itself within the baroque setting of the Old Royal Naval College, and Eugen found herself a computer graduate mentally re-engineered into creative writing. She is now a PhD candidate in Writing by artefact and exegesis at Swinburne University of Technology. Her short story ‘A puzzle piece’ was shortlisted in the Lightship Publishing (UK) international short story prize 2013 and is published in Lightship Anthology 3. Her short stories and articles are published in Meniscus, Text Journal, Bukker Tillibul, Australasian Association of Writing Programs publications, ABC The Drum, World Literature Today, and other publications.

That Danged Gizmo
“DEY’S A TIME TO MAKE a stand, and dey’s a time to make tracks,” my daddy used to say. I didn’t understand what he meant, ‘cause I’d never had to do either, but the fact is, I’m a right smart gal. I took one look at the yard filled with them danged gizmos and just about hit the road like a scalded cat. --------------------- This is a work of collaboration by Eugen Bacon and E. Don Harpe.
