The Dark Is Falling
At this season, the editorial pendulum swings further toward horror poetry, which feels more pervasive in everyday life, perhaps because its fears can seem so much more first-hand, so much closer to our reality, than those of fantasy or science fiction.
A couple of years ago, my husband stopped for coffee somewhere near Milwaukee, WI. As is typical of a certain kind of shop, he was never able to remember its name or find it again. On its walls, someone named Julie was exhibiting a series of erasure poems—painted-out pages from books or magazines—inserted in cheap little frames, on sale for $5. This is one of them.
Please vote in favor of the proposed increases to SFPA print memberships rates (our only expenses other than printing and mailing publications are webhosting, contributor/contest payments, and award plaques). Thanks to those Life members who have waived print publications or extra copies and to very generous anonymous donors (2 more color covers!). We’d also like to thank Written Image Press for their donation to the Dwarf Stars anthology.
Onward, into the black night of space.
