APOCALYPSE by Frederick Turner – a science fiction POEM


“…There’s nothing for it then but to explain.
Perhaps for most of you it’s history,
But there’s a right way and a wrong way
To tell a story, and this one is epic…”


Frederick Turner is an internationally known poet, lecturer, and scholar, and Founders Professor of Arts and Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas. Today marks the launch of his epic science fiction poem, APOCALYPSE, with Baen Books.

Book 1 is online NOW here at Baen.com

“Fred Turner and his brilliant future-epic poem” – bestselling and award-winning author, David Brin

“I loved the blank verse, so supple and expressive; and the command of a fictional history, the epic sweep of a macro-plot along with the many interesting characters and situations at the personal level.” – bestselling and award-winning author, Kim Stanley Robinson
