Description

The Mutant Rain Forest is nature's revenge upon man's despoliation.

Robert Frazier and Bruce Boston, SFPA's first two Grandmaster Poets, created and began exploring the Mutant Rain Forest in the late 1980s with both collaborative and solo works.

Since that time, stories and/or poems set in the Mutant Rain Forest have appeared in Omni, Asimov's SF Magazine, Amazing Stories, Weird Tales, Daily Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, Year's Best Fantasy and Horror (St. Martin's), Year's Best Horror (DAW), The Rhysling Anthology, and many other publications.

In the mutant rain forest it's adapt or be redacted.

Their collaborative poem "Return to the Mutant Rain Forest" received first place in the 2006 Locus Poll for All-Time Favorite Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror Poem. Visions of the Mutant Rain Forest collects the best stories and poems from this world: two novelettes, four short stories, two flash fictions (nearly 40,000 words of fiction), and 38 poems, including two stories and five poems appearing here for the first time.

Interview with the authors:

What makes this collection so special?

Bruce Boston: "Visions of the Mutant Rain Forest was written by the first two Grandmasters of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. It was more than twenty-years in the making."

How did you two come up with the idea for this science fiction epic?

Robert Frazier: "In the mid-eighties, Bruce asked me for a story for Berkeley Poets Cooperative. I sent him a cautionary tale of a mutated creature from the waters of the Amazon. He liked the milieu: mutation and the jungle. I had previously explored their collision in two poems for Asimov's SF and Amazing Stories, but Bruce insisted there were rich poetic possibilities still to be mined. Soon we were trading stanzas to 'Return to the Mutant Rain Forest,' which proved to have considerable legs, and, more importantly, became the kick-start to a growing series."
