April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate we’re taking the opportunity to showcase poetry written by notable names in the science fiction and fantasy fields.
When thinking of the mediums that deliver SFF, one invariably visualizes descriptive prose, be it in doorstopper hardcover or dog-eared paperback form, but poetry is well-entrenched within the SFF genres and often pops up with surprising regularity.
There’s a rich well of material to draw from and we’ll be posting some every Sunday afternoon in April. (And perhaps more often than that.) We hope you enjoy the series! Our first poem is Sonnet: Against Entropy by John M. Ford.
