    1. The Rhysling Anthology pulls together science fiction and fantasy poems nominated for a Rhysling Award presented by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association. As such, these poems represent many of the best works published in journals throughout the year. A multitude of forms, styles, and themes fill these pages, revealing some surprising, powerful, and gorgeous work. Always worth a read.

    2. A sampling of the best science fiction, fantasy, and horror poems published in 2016 as selected by members of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. Many outstanding poems in the collection with images and ideas that are staying with me after reading. A few poems weren't quite to my taste, but still worth the read.

    3. This anthology contains all 152 poems nominated for the 2017 Rhysling Award for the best speculative poetry. Inevitably, the poems range from those not to my taste to those that I love. Many of the ones that didn't appeal to me are still skillful. There are poems that I might have loved if I had understood them more clearly, and poems that I liked even though I didn't fully understand them. There are poems that made me wish that I could write that beautifully, and poems with a sense of humor. Th [...]

Strongly narrative verse continues to be favored, and pure science fiction (as opposed to fantasy, dark [...]

    5. Reading an award anthology, as a voting participant, is a bit different from reading a multi-author collection for pleasure. I had enough time to read every line, and so I chose to do so; but in a general magazine or anthology I'll quit on a poem after a couple of stanzas that don't grab me. Or that actively exclude me. The result of reading everything in this anthology was being inspired and impressed, and then suffering intervals of excruciating disinterest.Disinterest is the right word, I bel [...]

    6. Lots of great poems in a variety of genres. My favorites were usually the science fiction or horror poems; I thought the fantasy poems seemed limited to myth and history. I liked some of the supernatural tales, too, but few of them really surprised me. If I have one critique, it is that many of these poems overall seemed lacking in surprise. I don't have a lot of experience reading genre poetry, but I think poets might approach it in a more straight-forward manner and rely on existing genre trop [...]
