Themes from science fiction, fantasy, and horror have been an intimate part of contemporary poetry in the United States and abroad. The publishing of poetry by those American writers who view themselves as primarily science fiction/fantasy/horror writers has been less common and generally relegated to infrequent appearances in genre publications; this has changed dramatically since the early 1970s. In Contemporary Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Poetry, Green provides evidence that there are, in fact, many opportunities for publishing such genre poetry in both commercial and small press publications. Contemporary Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Poetry includes guides to major magazines that publish this type of poetry, each with an index of poets published, a bibliography of major anthologies, and a biographical directory of poets active in the three genres. The book also includes an appendix of awards.
