My fictional reading is heavily weighted toward science-fiction. I generally try to avoid poetry, but this said it was about science fiction. It wasn’t very expensive, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I’ve read some of this author’s previous work and I was able to see how the writing has matured since then. These poems are more like micro stories; flash fiction of the sci-fi genre, if you will. They read fast and are great to read for a couple of minute breaks throughout the day. Some of the poems were funny, and some were touching. Space was a huge theme (duh) and the technical jargon did not overrun or dilute the writing, IMO. It’s definitely worth checking out.

Sometimes I’ll play Russian Roulette and just choose a random read since I’m such a creature of habit in my reading pickings. Out of This World Sci-Fi Poetry is what I selected. I was a bit skeptical at first because I have never been fond of poetry but since its’ content was sci-fi, I thought I’d give it a chance. I’m glad I did! I’ve never read poetry of this genre before. It is nothing like the stereo-typical poetry I was forced to read through college. I give the author a thumbs up for this one!
