SF Poetry at MINDFLIGHTS: Issue Two

In the February issue of MindFlights, Joshua Gage's poem of historical fantasy will put a smile on the face of anyone who loves illuminated manuscripts: "The Illuminator."

A taste:

Candles perch like angels
beating back the night
with triumphant wings. The scribe
begins his work. “Formavit”
sprouts leaves beneath his quill,


It's a poem begging to be colorfully illustrated by a fantasy artist.

There Will Be Poetry by Dorine Ratulangie is the second of February offerings at MindFlights. The opening stanza:

There will be poetry
in the skeleton of androids
and the hull of stolen ships
as we flee. Outside
a starsystem
spills its essence in
tenuous trails of gas
dark and barren.


Drop by and read all of it--and the fiction, too.
