The Fantastic Muse cover

The prophet of science and SF is shown to be prophetic also in his views on the need for a poetry of SF. To mark Clarke's 75th birthday, this seminal article – the earliest known essay on SF poetry – is reprinted for the first time since its original fanzine appearance in 1938, together with a haunting poem of his own from the following year, "The Twilight of a Sun". Both items are of significant importance in the history of SF poetry, and as an insight into the early thoughts of this major writer.
