Thank you, [ profile] science_at_nasa

How could I have gotten through my Friday without knowing the fate of Camilla the rubber chicken at the edge of space?

Not all genre / speculative poems appear in speculative journals, so it's fun to keep an eye out for them elsewhere.

Today, for example, I was catching up on some recent offerings on Poetry Daily when I ran across this poem.

 "A Little about Not Knowing Very Much" by Christopher Buckley didn't appear in a genre collection, but it is filled with exquisite science/SFnal imagery.

OK . . . these particular zombies are ants, but the idea of a parasitic fungus manipulating the behavior of its (dying) host to promote its own reproduction is still majorly creepy.  Thank you,

For all the horrific details -- and an equally nasty little story about "gaster flagging" -- check here.

And be glad you aren't a carpenter ant in Thailand.
