Editorial Reviews


The Larger Earth counts as the best writing Memmott's done yet: his metaphor of the grounded astronaut travels with uncanny speed across the late 20th-century landscape. Each poem within the cycle, moreover, can be read as a self-contained entity, possessing its own mood & character. I admired the simultaneously autobiographical & visionary feel of the cycle...one of the finest works of SF poetry ever. -- Andrew Joron, author

With their Daliesque titles and Ballardian/Malzbergian tropes, these poems evoke all the failed NASA dreams of our fallen age, creating an atmosphere of weary desuetude. -- Asimov's Science Fiction
