Hungry Cover Mockup 0Last week I found out that my newest poetry collection, Hungry Constellations, is a Suzette Haden Elgin Award nominee. This is a relatively new award given by the Science Fiction Poetry Association for best poetry collection, chosen by member vote.
I considered Suzette a friend and I'm glad SFPA took a step to honor her memory.
Hungry Constellations began as a reward offered through the Mythic Delirium Kickstarter in 2013. My gratitude goes out to Dominik Parisien, who sifted through 20 years of my verse to curate something extra special to present to the world. Thanks, too, to Amal El-Mohtar for an introduction that states pretty succinctly what my poetry is all about. And finally, thanks, to whichever SFPA member(s) nominated the book.
If you're a SFPA member and you'd like an ebook copy to read (or heck, if you're just someone who'd like a copy, it's not like I'm going to perform a background check) feel free to email me a request at mythicdelirium@gmail.com. The book is available in PDF, EPUB and MOBI formats.
I want to note, too, that among the other nominees, John Philip Johnson's comic-book-in-verse Stairs Appear in a Hole Outside of Town is a truly amazing, original creation, and I would love to see it win in its category.
