Praise for "Iron Angels"

"These poems by Geoffrey A. Landis run the gamut from … silly putty to supernova. … Some poems I read twice (and out loud!) My favorites are about the ten ways to tell if your cat is a space alien, the time machine used for hiding Christmas presents in the future, and the absolutely glorious word picture of Gulliver striding through the universe in exponential seven league boots." -- Jane Yolen, poet and two time Nebula winner for "Sister Emily's Lightship" and "Lost Girls"

"Yeasty poems-- they're as engaging as they are eclectic." -- David Barber (poetry editor, The Atlantic Monthly)

"People say there's poetry in science and they must be right because here it is. "-- Jo Walton, author of The King's Peace, The King's Name, and Farthing

"… Each poem simply launches off its page into new realms of witty insight. After reading Iron Angels, you will be convinced your cat is a space alien, that you need a Time Machine for Christmas, and that you’ll know what to do if given a pair of exponential boots. A simply wonderful book, I can’t recommend this one enough." -- Deborah P Kolodji, President, Science Fiction Poetry Association
