DANGER TO SELF AND OTHERS by Tyree Campbell
What is the difference between ordinary poetry and science fiction poetry?
The answer to this question can be found in Tyree Campbell’s poetry
collection, A Danger to Self and Others. Science fiction poetry, when it’s
serious, has the entire cosmos to consider. And when it’s playful, it has the
entire universe to play with. On the serious side, take a look at Campbell’s
poem “Evolution,” which opens the collection. Or you want playful? Read
his poem titled “How the Solar System Really Lost its Tenth Planet,” or
“Garden Party.” And did I mention it has dragons? – from the Introduction
