Better late than never, this is the obligatory award eligibility post that every author and poet in the universe does at this time of year…except this is the first time I’ve done it! I am eligible for a number of awards, but often forget to post which poems, essays, and stories published in the past year. You can also find this information in my general writing credits on my portfolio site http://wendyvancamp.com. This post makes the information easier to find.
I’ve published a mixture of speculative and literary poetry, essays, and of course, I’m the editor of Eccentric Orbits: An Anthology of Science Fiction Poetry. My published work is available to read online for free, with the exception of the anthology.
Bootstraps traveling through time envy propels me to claim a life the old man is me
Time travel has always been a favorite science fiction concept for me. I am drawn to the paradox of such stories. I ended up writing a series of scifaiku on the topic, drawing from this well known trope.
This poem is a part of the scifaiku poetry series about time travel which appeared in the August Issue of “Far Horizons”. This was a magazine of science fiction stories, art, and speculative poetry.
