Introduction to Issue 6

Welcome to the sixth issue of Eye to the Telescope, which is devoted to formalism in Weird Poetry. Weird verse, which has a long and rich tradition, concerns itself with macabre, spectral, supernatural and cosmic themes. One could go on at length to discuss the genre in its myriad formalist manifestations, but the intention here is to let contemporary practitioners of the art show it, rather than say it.
