Where Rockets Burn Through: Contemporary Science Fiction Poems from the UK

Hello everyone!

A quick update to say that “Where Rockets Burn Through: Contemporary Science Fiction Poems from the UK” is now available to pre-order online:    

Please check it out!
I’m super excited about this anthology and was very fortunate to be asked to submit a few poems for it. Three of my poems – The Costume, In Mobius, and How the Beasts Survive for So Long – appear in the anthology along with poems from some 40 other great writers! I can’t wait to pick up my copy (and will post up some photos soon as I’ve got it in my hands!)

And most importantly! Apologies for the late notice, but the Edinburgh launch of the anthology will take place TOMORROW night, Thursday 29th November, 6pm at Blackwells book store (EH1 1YS). If you’re in town, I’ll be at the launch and it’d be great to see you so do say hello!

If you’re further afield or don’t like super-last-minute notices, the London launch is Thursday 6th December at 7:30pm, at Toynbee Studios (28 Commercial Street, London E1 6AB), so you have another chance to pick up the book in person and hear some brilliant readers there.

This anthology is definitely going to be one of those books you can give to people who aren’t so sure they like poetry but might be willing to dabble – I have a feeling. And at the (very reasonable!) price, it’s perfect for stocking fillers! Super excited. =)

So hopefully see you tomorrow night – and definitely check out this excellent anthology when you have a chance!
