Poems from the Old Speculations Message Board

     Kent Brewster used to run this web site in support of his SF writing magazine Speculations. I was a subscriber, and because of that, much to my surprise, I discovered in early 2002 that I had a message board over there. I used it to write poems for the next two years, and other folks wrote poems back.

     Well, in March, 2008, Kent shut down the Speculations web site, and that, I thought, was that for the poems. Till I remembered archive.org, and typing in the old board's URL, I found the whole thing stored there quite nicely. So I figured I'd put all 104 posts from the board here in the Poetic Annex.

     And so, without further adieu, I re-present Poems from the Old Speculations Message Board.
