Science Fiction poetry spanning thirteen years of collaborative writing. It highlights the difference between SF and other genres of writing--the intensely shared, interactive, collaborative elements of SF, since we all have a stake in the Future and a soul in the Other. In his introduction, Andrew Joron sums it up well: "SF is, in fact, a dialogical genre, one in which texts are written in direct response to other texts, in which meanings are produced and sustained by community effort... I believe the cross-pollinating spirit of SF can be authentically transferred to the writing of poetry." Illustrated with strange photos by noted surrealist Thomas Wiloch.--Don Webb
