The Sword Review Poetry Contest
Runner-Up: "After The Crash"

Would you like to read a truly enthralling, warm-spirited, sophisticated speculative poem on the subject of hope?

Take a moment today, Sunday, a day of special graces, to drop by The Sword Review and read Samantha Henderson's really terrific poem, "After the Crash."

Here, have a taste:

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, she read,
in something called Hebr that flickered in transient pixels
on the star-cracked handscreen.

Faith was the name of the ship,
Substance came in sealtubes,
but Hope had no referent.


The end is truly moving.

I'm always excited when I discover a poet who's new to me and whose work I want to continue to find, read, and enjoy.



Join the discussion the Christian Fantasy, Christian Science Fiction, or just Speculative Fiction from a Christian Perspective!
