Science Fiction Poetry Association Grand Master
I did NOT expect to win. But I am now the 7th Grand Master named by the SFPA. The first-named is Bruce Boston, elevated, if that's the word, in 1999. The award is voted on by the members of the SFPA, and is awarded on the basis of a sort of speculative-poetry gestalt: skill, accomplishment, and service. Here's a link for more info: http://sfpoetry.com/grandmasters.html
I am honored. Basking in the glow.
