Spring is upon us and, with it, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association’s annual “Year’s Best” anthology nears publication.  Or to cop the tip from the horse’s mouth:  Aside from STAR*LINE, the RHYSLING ANTHOLOGY is the SFPA’s single greatest contribution to the larger world of Speculative Poetry.  It is a platform where Speculative Poets are nominated and acknowledged by their peers for single works of exemplary poetry.  But there is a catch.  Although dues-paying members of SFPA receive the anthology as a perk (while those not members may buy it as well), it does cost money.  And so today’s email has brought a plea, that members — and non-members too! — may also contribute donations.

If interested, or for just more information on the Rhyslings and the anthology, one may press here.  And if willing to donate, look to the right for the drop box marked Rhysling Sponsorship and take it from there.

In somewhat related news, Smart Rhino Publications is sponsoring a kickstarter for its and the Written Remains Writers Guild’s upcoming anthology A PLAGUE OF SHADOWS, more on which can be found here.  This is a little unusual for me to report in that I don’t have a dog in this particular pack (though I don’t have a poem in this year’s Rhysling contention either, as it happens), but I have published with Smart Rhino before and, to quote their particular email this time, [o]ur main goals for this Kickstarter campaign are (1) to support the fruitful collaboration of amazing writers (regardless of their current stature in the publishing world), and (2) to bring the best horror and suspense fiction possible to you, the readers.  Smart Rhino takes great pride in publishing quality books for our supporters — and our writers take great pride in providing you with the best stories they have to offer.  My particular stories with them are in the anthologies UNCOMMON ASSASSINS, INSIDIOUS ASSASSINS, and ZIPPERED FLESH 3, and to help the cause one might buy one or more of those books as well.
