A poetry collection. An expanded print edition of the 2002 ebook.
Night Smoke, by Bruce Boston and Marge Simon is a brilliant collaboration of two of speculative poetry's brightest lights. This collection contains twenty-seven poems, prose poems, and flash fictions, as well as fifteen full color illustrations, all of a dark persuasion.
