Rhysling nominations

For all of you SFPA members, the deadline's drawing closer to nominate poems for the 2009 Rhysling Award.

Nominations must be in (or at least postmarked) by February 2nd, and you can nominate one short poem (1-49 lines) and one long poem (50+ lines). If anyone hasn't chosen their nominations yet and are looking for more poems to choose from, here is a list of all my Rhysling-eligible poems from 2008, with links to the ones that appear online. All are under 49 lines. I encourage everyone to post a similar list in the comments, so we can all browse through them.

I've read all the Shantytown ones. Some very fine stuff there.

Thanks Charles! J always seems to put together a great issue.

Geez, Greg, you've been busy this year! ;-) And by the looks of things, if you're not nominated for a Rhysling, you certainly will get a DwarfStar nod! Nicely done!

Greg Schwartz said...

Thanks Josh! Do you have any poems you want to post links to?

Hi Greg,

I'm sorry some of your poems at Niteblade aren't accessible at the moment. If you would like to send copies of the .pdfs for people to read you can totally do it without guilt -- I don't mind at all.

In case that helps :)

Rhonda - thanks, I appreciate it, but you don't have to do that. It's no big deal... hope getting the site back up's not giving you too much of a headache.
