My 2006 Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry

When reviewing my overall 2006 poetry publications, I've discovered that I published a lot more speculative poems than I thought I had!

In addition to editing the first official SFPA Dwarf Stars Anthology, I published two science fiction poetry chapbooks – Symphony of the Universe and Red Planet Dust. Including a few that weren’t reprints there, I published a total of 59 speculative poems, 30 of which were scifaiku. Since the scifaiku are untitled, I’m going to list them separately as a convenience.

There are also another 10 poems which I believe straddle the border between speculative and mainstream.
