About the Author:

Bruce Boston is the author of 24 books and chapbooks, including the novel Stained Glass Rain. His work has won numerous awards, including a Pushcart Prize for fiction, three Asimov Readers Choice Awards, and the only Grand Master Award given by the Science Fiction Poetry Association in its 22-year history

Review:

"...an attractively printed and packaged poem by one of our finest speculative poets....The pacing and cadence of the poem are conversational, almost blank verse. The reader seems to be listening to a monologue by the body thief, and as such it reminds me of some of Robert Browning's monologous poems. And it lives up to the comparison....highly recommended." -- --Star*Line

...burns with strong ideas and important themes...the heart of speculation and its serious commentary both reside here... -- -Trent Walters, SF SITE, May 2001

...cleverly designed broadsheet...a poem whose wry musings compress a novel into a dozen stanzas. -- -Paul Di Filippo, ASIMOV'S SCIENCE FICTION, August 1999
