2014 Rhysling award eligible poems

Hi everyone! I’ve recently joined the Stone Telling team, and this is my first blog post. I love making lists, so I present you with a list of all Stone Telling poems eligible for the Rhysling award this year.

A further note before we begin: Stone Telling is not eligible for the Hugo awards in Best Semiprozine category this year because we didn’t have four issues out. We recommend people vote for Goblin Fruit instead!
