The last time I blogged in August 2015, I announced that several of my poems had come out in the brand-new Syzygy Poetry Journal.
A couple months later, I had the privilege and pleasure of having two more poems appear — "How Eternal Night Was Created" and "Letter to Zelazny from Olympus Mons" — in the second Syzygy issue.
The cool thing that's happened since then is that in February 2016, those two poems were nominated for Rhysling Awards in the Science Fiction Poetry Association (SFPA). "How Eternal Night Was Created" was nominated as a short poem (less than 50 lines), and "Letter to Zelazny from Olympus Mons" was nominated as a long poem (as a prose poem of 500+ words).
Both poems will soon come out in the 2016 Rhysling Anthology, in preparation for the SFPA voting process. If you are a member of the SFPA, I hope you will consider voting for my poems. Thanks!
