I had the honor of being the first reader to publish a review for this great collection of poetry. I love when that happens. Here is my review:

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bruce Boston's poetry spans many years. I love how Brief Encounters With My Third Eye groups his poetry through the decades and allows the reader a glimpse into the progression of a poetic master's work. His earlier poetry is certainly grand, but I found that the poetry I enjoyed the most came from his latest poems, Noir People - with the description of a colorless existence, home to shadowy shades - and The Music Of Particle Physics being my favorites. Poetry in the sci-fi genre is new to me. I love Bruce's play of words as he bounces along in an enchanting manner, bringing majesty to the world of Physics.

Read this great collection and you will discover a true master at the craft! 
Book description:

 Brief Encounters with My Third Eye collects over one hundred of Boston’s best short poems (under fifty lines) from more than forty years of publishing, including fifteen award-winning poems. Boston’s poetry has received the Bram Stoker Award, the Asimov’s Readers Award, and the Rhysling and Grandmaster Awards of the Science Fiction Poetry Association.

“Boston forces us to make eye contact with alchemists, angels, ghosts, werewolves, demagogues, monsters, demons, spacers, robots, berserkers, their lovers, and their victims. Inventive, speculative to the point of skewering us with wonder, innovative, resonant with melody, this overview of Boston's work from the early 70's to the present dramatizes the development of one of America's most skilled and inspired poets.” – Mary Turzillo, Lovers & Killers, Mars Girls, Elgin and Nebula Award Winner

“In these fleet, always musical poems, Boston spotlights not only infinite vistas of time and space but also the grottos of our most intransigent longings and fears. These same poems may move us to gasp or guffaw to the point of finding ourselves, to purloin a phrase of the poet's, ‘polymorphously pleasure-spent.’ Brief Encounters twinkles luminously and always delivers.” – Michael Bishop, Nebula Award Winner, author of Other Arms Reach Out to Me: Georgia Stories

“With Brief Encounters, Boston manages an amazing feat: he not only knocks it out of the park, but also shows us he's been doing it for decades. A great read for anyone who enjoys seeing what wonders words can work...and who isn't afraid to step into the dark from time to time.” – Michaelbrent Collings, multiple Bram Stoker Award Nominee and bestselling author of The Longest Con

Hurray for Bruce Boston and Crystal Lake Publishing!
