Steve Sneyd has been nominated by the Science Fiction Poetry Association for the 2008 SFPA Grandmaster award.

He faces tough competition as the other contenders are Ray Bradbury, Joe Haldeman, David C. Kopaska-Merkel and Marge Simon.
people who have vanished
pressed into poems in small defunct magazines
still breath sometimes athwart my dreams
he wrote in Tributary Fractions which I published in The Hallamshire & Osgoldcross Poetry Express back in 1973.

I've published numerous poems by Steve Sneyd over the years in the magazines I edited, as well as his collection A Mile Beyond The Bus.

Two of his talks have been archived on Zimmerzineand you can read brief reviews of some his other collections on NHI Review.
