Poetry collaborations &#8211; such as, I think I remember, between Denise Duhamel and Maureen Seaton &#8211; seem to exist a bit on the fringes of &#8220;literary&#8221; poetry, but it does exist.</p> Jeannine Hall Gailey What you said. 2009-10-06T20:34:21+00:00 2009-10-06T20:34:21+00:00 <p>I&#8217;ve been thinking about this since I saw the teaser on twitter earlier. Speculative fiction combines so many things &#8211; good writing with good knowledge of how things work with good scientific understanding of what is possible with a good understanding of human motivation and how &#8220;what if&#8221;s play out. Granted, other genres require some of this too, but spec-fic is so cool for what it does. Maybe it&#8217;s because I have been reading Gaiman and Atwood a little lately, but I&#8217;m all about the stuff. Good Omens is on my list, my friend.</p> Emily
