Starship Sofa covers the Elgin Awards for Science Fiction Poetry Book of the Year

This week Starship Sofa coverage includes the 2014 SFPA Elgin Awards for Book of the Year, including my first place book, DEMONSTRA and Jeannine Hall Gailey's Unexplained Fevers and Bruce Boston's Dark Roads: Selected Long Poems.

A big thanks to Diane Severson Mori who spoke about our books during the Poetry Planet section of the podcast and read selected examples of our work for their readers. She'll soon be covering the winners of the 2014 SFPA Elgin Awards for Chapbook of the Year, including Helen Marshall's The Sex Lives of of Monsters.

I'm grateful to everyone who's been so wonderful in covering the news and helping us all to create a space for speculative poetry for today and future generations. And perhaps previous generations, if we ever perfect time travel.

On a personal level, a big thanks once again to Innsmouth Free Press for their wonderful support over the years and for taking a chance on a book of poetry, and to my colleague Vongduane Manivong for her amazing art that really helped to take DEMONSTRA to the next level.
