Pay the Price

by

A beautifully-written collection of poems that explores the theme of science fiction. Poems such as ‘Where are all the aliens?’ seeks to throw light on the topical, yet contentious, question. In other poems the reader will learn of the love that can last for many years between old friends, as well as the sometimes unexpected consequences of travel to distant parts.

Extract from Pay the Price,
Want to travel to the future?
Want to go back to the past?
It seems all things are possible,
If we know just how to ask,
Of Nature the right questions,
Of Science how it’s done,
For then we’ll have the answers,
It should be lots of fun!

Review comments for Conversations with a Muse.

There is something here for everyone. Some poems are amusing (I laughed out loud at a few),others are disturbing, most are witty and thoughtful. the whole sequence of "Conversations" is clever and funny.

Reading groups don't as a rule choose poetry but this would be a good choice because of the variety in style, mood and subject.
