2016 Rhysling Antho Arrives with Fay Wray vs. King Kong
Well, more of a lovers’ spat really, but it was enough to doom what might have been the greatest romance of the Twentieth Century! Fay Wray and King Kong! But as the poem “On the Other Hand” reveals (cf. March 20; September 5, March 30 2015), a long term relationship between them most likely would not have lasted anyway. And yesterday afternoon, what should arrive but the 2016 RHYSLING ANTHOLOGY (see also March 17) with “On the Other Hand,” as originally published in August last year on the British e-site GRIEVOUS ANGEL, as a nominee in the short poem section.
The Rhysling itself is an annual award for best speculative, science fiction, fantasy, horror, surreal, etc. poem of the year, in two divisions: Long and Short, voted on by members of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. Mentioned here many a time before, for more information on the award from the space-horse’s mouth (in a manner of speaking) one can press here.
