We are excited to announce that we’ve signed a deal with Linda D. Addison and Jamal Hodge for their collaborative poetry project titled Everything Endless. It contains 55 science fiction poems, in 4 sections that explore the universe from its biggest bangs to its tiniest discoveries. We haven’t seen a collaboration with this much star power in a long time and can’t wait to share these poems with you. “There is something magnetic in these poems. I thoroughly enjoyed the complexity of this collection and the way its working on so many levels sneaking in moments of humor between glimpses of awe,” says managing editor Jennifer Barnes.
