Join us in congratulating Mary Soon Lee for picking up a Rhysling Award nomination for her poem “Not Like This“. “Not Like This” appeared in issue 86.

According to the Science Fiction Poetry Association website:

The Rhysling Awards are named for the blind poet Rhysling in Robert A. Heinlein’s short story “The Green Hills of Earth.” Rhysling’s skills were said to rival Rudyard Kipling’s. In real life, Apollo 15 astronauts named a crater near their landing site “Rhysling,” which has since become its official name.

Nominees for each year’s Rhysling Awards are selected by the membership of the Science Fiction Poetry Association.
