Pavane for a Cyber-Princess / She Was There for Him the Last Time / In Far Pale Clarity Pavane for a Cyber-Princess, She Was There for Him the Last Time and In Far Pale Clarity by Bruce Boston
reviewed by Trent Walters
He has three long poems out now and its difficult to say which is best because they're very much the same, and very much different. "As far as the East is from the West" always puzzled Trent. At some point, the East becomes the West, doesn't it? So, too, is the difference between these three poems.

The Complete Accursed Wives The Complete Accursed Wives by Bruce Boston
reviewed by Trent Walters
The author presents the horrors of conjugal bliss in this collection, a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award for best poetry collection (an award that's been sorely needed). If you've ever held the undead fear that poetry was for the hoity-toity crowd or that the vulgar fangs of science fiction may sink into your tea-and-crumpets sanctity of poetry, then these batch of tales the embalming fluid to put those fears to rest.

After Magic After Magic by Bruce Boston
reviewed by Trent Walters
It begins with Stephan, a magician in search of perfecting his magic through spiritual highs, journeying further and further into the Far East. Meanwhile, back at the British séance, Madame Tutoni of the Tarot and of the other world has been waiting for her tidal powers to fluctuate beyond the occasional parlour trick of pulling strange cards out of the ether. Both wish to plumb the depths of their trade. And so opportunity knocked...

Dark Tales & Light Dark Tales & Light by Bruce Boston
reviewed by Trent Walters
This collection includes "With Vorpal Sword in Hand" which creates a cast of furry clawed characters from the nonsense terms Lewis Carroll nonchalantly cast about: like Brillig and the gang of Slithy Toves who guard the Vorpal Sword that had once slain the Jabberwocky. But the author puts the Toves on motorcycles and transforms Brillig into a daydreaming hero-wanna-be -- all very human designs. Brillig's daydreams his way out of his job into rescuing damsels, but digs himself into a hole he must continue to dig when he tries to become a hero when there is no need for one.

3 Broadsides 3 Broadsides by Bruce Boston
reviewed by Trent Walters
Long speculative poems have fewer venues than short, making broadsides necessary. Though written over a span of about 7 years, these 3 more distinct and necessary broadsides could be no more distinct than if 3 distinct poets had written them. The first is light and clean, the 2nd narrative and cursorily expansive, and the 3rd gritty yet oblique. But one poet wrote them all, the 6-time Rhysling winning poet and as yet its only Grand Master.

Icarus Descending and After Magic Icarus Descending by Steve Savile and After Magic by Bruce Boston
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
Icarus Descending contains some of the most impressive short fiction of the year. Plus, it is a tantalizing opening act to the two Savile novels that are coming out this year. In After Magic, you can forget the dark, bohemian settings and jump back to Victorian England, where a medium, a magician, and a somewhat holy man are about to bump in an amusing collision that gets a bit wilder with each paragraph.
