A Rhysling one.

February 1, 2010 - 6:33 am 6 Comments

I was just notified that my poem FAMILY JAUNT was nominated for a Rhysling award, and will therefore at the very least, be included in The 2010 Rhysling Anthology, a collection of the poems nominated for the Rhyslings (published by the Science Fiction Poetry Association); members use the Rhysling Anthology to cast their final votes for the Rhysling Awards.
Poets appearing in past anthologies include: Isaac Asimov, Margaret Atwood, Diane Ackerman, Alan P. Lightman, Ray Bradbury, Ursula Le Guin, Bruce Boston, Peter Redgrove, Jane Yolen, Robert Frazier, Gene Wolfe, Joe Haldeman,  Thomas Disch, Catherynne M. Valente, Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann, John M. Ford,  Michael Bishop, Lucius
Shepard, Jeff VanderMeer, Mike Allen, David Kopaska-Merkel, and Amal El-Mohtar.

This is indeed quite an honor.

    That was a typo, I meant to say I was “chafed” on your behalf.
