Mark Pirie and Tim Jones publish Star Words

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 by Mark Pirie

In December, a new anthology of Science Fiction and speculative poetry, Star Words, compiled by Tim Jones and myself featured in the relaunched ESAW mini series.

We compiled the A6 booklet anthology from poems read on 30 October 2019 at the 10th anniversary reading for Voyagers: Science Fiction Poetry from New Zealand, winner of the Vogel Award for Best Collected Work 2009. Tim Jones and I co-edited Voyagers together. The event was held at Vic Books, Lambton Quay.

Contributors to Star Words include Janis Freegard, Tim Jones, Harvey Molloy, Vivienne Plumb, Nick Ascroft, Margaret Jeune, Tabatha Wood, Tony Hopkins,  Michael O’Leary and myself.

We have dedicated the booklet to the memory of  B. E. Turner, technical editor of the ESAW Mini Series, d. October 2019.
