The Starlight SciFaiku Review, Summer 2022 (issue #2)

6 | Editor’s Choice Award

As is always the case, this was an outrageously difficult decision.

I kept coming back to John J. Dunphy’s poem about alien DNA. I took a DNA test myself recently and while I learned nothing about an extraterrestrial provenance, the poem revved up my science fiction engine. I think it’ll do the same for you.

Without further ado, this issue’s award of the Sloanie goes to John and the timeless joys of ancestral discovery.
