The cold hard hearts of gods

despise

the lickspittle loyalty of dogs

Incense and candles

infuriate

appetites weaned on burning bones

Libations and tithes

purchase

only a smirk at the stingy waste

The gods lean down, though,

whispering

in our ears

feeding

on our devotion

We were divine, once,

giving

them names

stirring

them into life




K. J. Kirby came from the historic Hudson Valley and will not say how old she was before she learned that Ichabod Crane and Rip van Winkle were not actual personages. She recently emerged from the surreal fantasy world of tax preparation, and has a forthcoming poem in Abyss & Apex. You can contact her at kkkidder@commkey.net.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in. Though most of those fanzines did not last very long, they played the important role of compiling and delivering information. The key reason why I identify those magazines as fanzines is because all the contributors joined out of their interest in SF and worked for free.
