Science fiction poetry news....

Locus Online has set up a new poll, for SF/Fantasy/Horror Poetry. There are two categories -- "Best SF/F/H Poem of 2005" and "Best SF/F/H Poem of All Time" -- and you can vote for your top five choices in each category at https://secure.locusmag.com/2006/Issues/2006PoetryPoll.html . (Where you will also find additional information, and a very helpful list of poems, with their authors and dates of publication, from the Locus Index to Science Fiction.)

The deadline for voting is April 15, 2006 -- not much time. I'd be grateful if those of you who are interested would spread the word in any way you can. Poetry needs you.
