Visions of the Mutant Rain Forest by Bruce Boston and Robert Frazier
The Mutant Rain Forest is nature’s revenge upon man’s despoliation.
Robert Frazier and Bruce Boston, SFPA’s first two Grandmaster Poets, created and began exploring the Mutant Rain Forest in the late 1980s with both collaborative and solo works.
Since that time, stories and/or poems set in the Mutant Rain Forest have appeared in Omni, Asimov’s SF Magazine, Amazing Stories, Weird Tales, Daily Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror (St. Martin’s), Year’s Best Horror (DAW), The Rhysling Anthology, and many other publications.
In the mutant rain forest it’s adapt or be redacted.
Their collaborative poem “Return to the Mutant Rain Forest” received first place in the 2006 Locus Poll for All-Time Favorite Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror Poem. Visions of the Mutant Rain Forest collects the best stories and poems from this world: two novelettes, four short stories, two flash fictions (nearly 40,000 words of fiction), and 38 poems, including two stories and five poems appearing here for the first time.
