SFPA Members' Activities Round Up: December, 2016

We have some exciting announcements from many of our members of the Science Fiction Poetry Association this month, including three new books, a variety of convention appearances, articles, and other distinctive achievements. My congratulations to everyone, and a special thanks to Michael H. Payne for taking the time to put together the list and all of the links that go with it.

As always, it's appreciated if you share these with your readers and fellow writers on your blogs, podcasts, etc. in part or in full because it helps us to create a good working record of the creative efforts of our members and to help newer poets find places to find writers they admire, and perhaps to submit work themselves. Keep in great spirits! David C. Kopaska-Merkel
