Strange Horizons - 10th Anniversary Reading

On Sunday, Gwynne Garfinkle organized a poetry reading and tea in honor of the 10th Anniversary of Strange Horizons. It was iced tea, a wonderful blackberry sage tea as well as a peach ginger tea. We had cookies from Porto's Bakery as well as strawberries and grapes.

Several contributors to Strange Horizons were on hand to read their stories and poems: Gwynne Garfinkle, Kendall Evans, Samantha Henderson, Kaolin Fire, and me.



Gwynne, Samantha, and Kaolin read stories. Kendall, Samantha, Kaolin, and I read poems.
I read all of my Strange Horizons poems, including the rengay I wrote with Ann K. Schwader(ankh_hpl).

2004 - Minions of the Moon (with Ann K. Schwader)
2005 - Assembling Titan
2006 - Virgo H121
2006 - After the Last Spaceship
2007 - Casting Her Lot

Kaolin helped me read the rengay.

Both 2010 Rhysling Award winning poems were read. Kendall and Samantha read In the Astronaut Asylum and I read Ann's poem, To Theia.

Ash Baldon read her haiku from an island of egrets at the open mic.
