Egrets Reading

p.s. on Goldbarth



Several months back there was a LJ controversy in some circles about a comment tomsdisch made about the Science Fiction Poetry Association, The Rhysling Award, and Albert Goldbarth. You can read all about that here.

This, of course, led to samhenderson and I posing with Goldbarth's 2006 Rhysling nominated poem, wearing what we thought were erotically stimulated expressions. (Ok, I admit I'd fail as a porn star).

Anyway, I was reading The Kitchen Sink the other day where I was pleased to see that Goldbarth thanks the Science Fiction Poetry Association in his Acknowledgements section for nominating his poem, "Cock," for the 2006 Rhysling Award.

I thought it was an interesting postscript to the entire LJ affair.
