Congrats to Jeff Lyman; his short story in IGMS #23, The Hanged Poet, earned a recommendation from Locus Online’s Lois Tilton!
Layer after layer of revelation, the backstory becomes more interesting, fuller of significance. The author has done an audacious thing: making a poem the center of his work, declaring the power of the poem to alter human affairs, he is challenging himself to produce that poem. Some authors evade this challenge, but Lyman comes through.
