Dwarf Stars Out Now + Bonus Nomination

Dwarf Stars 2008 is now out, featuring the best short speculative poetry. We announced earlier that TSA got two nominations but as the book came out I noticed that TSA actually got three. Along with Berrien C. Henderson and John J. Dunphy, Stephen M. Wilson's poem "snipped, clipped and cut" is nominated for a Dwarf Stars Award. This poem was first published in The Shantytown Anomaly #6. Congratulations Stephen!

Dwarf Stars Nominations

The Shantytown Anomaly has received two more Dwarf Stars nominations this year. Congratulations to John J. Dunphy for his poem "museum of alien religions," and Berrien C. Henderson for his poem, "Clone." Both were originally published in The Shantytown Anomaly #6, and will appear in the upcoming Dwarfs Stars anthology edited by Deborah P. Kolodji and Stephen M. Wilson.

Issues going out of print, last chance to order!

I recently took at look at the stock around here and noticed that three different issues of The Shantytown Anomaly will soon be gone. Currently all we have left of TSA #2, #3, & #5 are...

TSA #3 - 1 copy
TSA #2 - 2 copies
TSA #5 - 3 copies

If you don't have one of these issues yet now is the time to pick one up. TSA #2 includes the 2007 Rhysling Award winning poem from Rich Ristow, as well as several Dwarf Stars nominated poems. TSA #3 has several Dwarf Stars nominated poems, and TSA #5 is our well received Collaboration Issue.
