Science fiction poetry, when it’s serious, has the entire cosmos to consider. And when it’s playful, it has the entire universe to play with. On the serious side, take a look at Campbell’s poem “Evolution,” which opens the collection. Or you want playful? Read his poem titled “How the Solar System Really Lost its Tenth Planet,” or “Garden Party.” And there are dragons! Plus hope, sorrow, joy, humor, pith, and vinegar.
