Nine Songs and Madrepore

Now up at Daily Science Fiction, Nine Songs, my little slipstream story about, well, Nine Songs.

And also now available, one of the rare poems where I plunged into marine biology, sorta, “Madrepore,” in Spelling the Hours: Poetry Celebrating the Forgotten Others of Science and Technology.  The poem is about Anna Thynne, a 19th century marine biologist who, among other things, studied reproduction in stony corals, and also was one of the first to develop salt water aquaria capable of keeping stony corals alive.

The overall collection, as the title says, celebrates other mostly forgotten scientists.

Enjoy!
