The planets have fascinated humanity since the dawn of time. We've looked up into the heavens and wondered what these wandering stars are and why they are different from their more stationary cousins. In modern times, humans have sent probes to all the planets in our solar system, sending back tantalizing views from faraway worlds. The planets are woven into our culture and history. They are signposts of our journey ahead.
This collection of 108 science fiction haiku poems (scifaiku) will take you on a journey of exploration showcasing tiny moments of wonder with each of the planets of our solar system.
The Planets has been nominated for the 2020 Elgin Award for Best Speculative Poetry Book of the Year by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association.
