Today I’d like to share a review (by Peter Pierce, Sydney Morning Herald) of the wonderful anthology of Australian speculative poetry I had a poem included in last year, The Stars Like Sand, edited by Tim Jones and P.S. Cottier, published by Interactive Press.
The breadth and depth of the poem selection in this anthology, which focused my interest on speculative poetry as a genre of huge and fascinating possibilities, was part of the inspiration for opening an award dedicated solely to speculative poetry. You can find information and guidelines for the Interstellar Award for Speculative Poetry here.
I recommend The Stars Like Sand, and am pleased to see its value as a beautifully organized and intriguing collection acknowledged by reviewers. You can read Pierce’s review here. The Stars Like Sand is available here.
