Indy poetry press Penned in the Margins invites you to the London launch of Where Rockets Burn Through. Edited by Russell Jones, this is the first ever anthology of Sci-fi poetry from writers currently living and working in the United Kingdom.

Blasting into the future, across alien worlds and distant galaxies, fantastic technologies and potential threats to humanity, Where Rockets Burn Through brings science fiction and poetry together in one explosive, genre-busting collection. Discover an array of poems by more than forty contemporary UK writers, including Edwin Morgan, Jane Yolen, Ron Butlin, WN Herbert, Ken MacLeod and Kirsten Irving, plus an exclusive essay on Sci-fi poetry by Steve Sneyd.
