Boston and Frazier are longtime Science Fiction poets whose work combines a surrealist sensibility with a hard technological edge. Their CHRONICLES OF THE MUTANT RAIN FOREST invokes a jungle gone botanically mad: "It is a Sphinx that lifts the world upon its back and grows./ Its veins are road maps that lead nowhere,/ its breath a cipher,/ its inscrutable eyes spin mandalas that drift and blue/ shift in toward Armageddon." Eerie and evocative, these poems effectively explore a terrain most poets don't even realize exists.--Thomas Willoch
