In Days to Come by Lisa Timpf now out!

SF Canada member Lisa Timpf’s book of speculative haibun poetry, In Days to Come, has been released by Hiraeth Publishing, and is now available!

The poems in this collection are grouped into four sections. The first, “Terra, Terra,” includes poems set on the planet Earth. That is true of many of the poems in the second section, “Looming Shadows,” though they have been grouped together in relation to some of the potential disasters we as a human race have set ourselves up for—nuclear warfare, climate change, and so on. “Alien Encounters” contains poems relating to imagined interactions with other space-faring species. “Other Worlds” rounds out the collection with speculations on what life might be like if and when humanity spins out to the stars.

Find In Days to Come at Hiraeth Publishing and find Lisa here.
