Illumen is a print magazine of speculative poetry co-edited by Tyree Campbell and Karen L. Newman. It is published biannually by Sam’s Dot Publishing, on 1 April and 1 October, in chapbook format. It contains speculative poetry, illustrations, articles, and reviews.
The Spring 2011 Illumen presents Mike Allen of Mythic Delirium as the Featured Poet. Mike is a kind of synthesis of David Kopaska-Merkel, Kendall Evans, s.c. virtes, and Emily Dickinson. Oh, and this issue of Illumen features an article by Ann K. Schwader, whose collection Wild Hunt of the Stars is on the final ballot for the Stoker Award. The article relates the poetry of Dickinson to science fiction poetry. Come see how Schwader does that.
