From terraforming texts on hostile planets to siege verse within the walls of beleaguered cities and deep space stations, this collection of poems gives voice to the people and places of The Verse.
Follow the trials of the colonists as they try to farm dead worlds, the street vendors scraping a living in oppressed cities, the space marines drinking away their pain in the battle bar, and then deeper, into the mountains and the asteroid fields, marching alongside the guerrillas opposing the system lords and their corporate masters.
Dive into outer rim rhymes and deep space sonnets, space marine banter and bounty hunter ballads. Let the action drip from your tongue with the taste of blaster fire and brimstone, or wallow in the dry fields waiting for True Rain™.
If you enjoy your poetry sitting by the fire in an off-world bar then you’ll love Bran Nicholls’ dark, adrenaline-fuelled, sometimes humorous, science fiction poetry.
