The Science Fiction Poetry Association has announced the winners of the 2008 Dwarf Stars contest. As the name implies, this competition is for very short poems (10 lines or less), which allows them to post all 3 of the winners on the awards page. They have also opened nominations for the 2009 Rhysling Awards. The Guardian ran a nice story about Steampunk, which looks very much like the author recently got his hands on a copy of Jeff and Ann VandeerMeer’s instant classic anthology of the same name and was amazed. As well he should have been; I told everyone last May this was a book they did not want to miss, and ordered my own copy before it hit the bookstores.
