This story, originally published in Science Fiction Age, March 1998, sums up how I feel about the Space Western genre in a lot of ways. These Space Westerns, the ones on this site and the many more that have yet to appear, the reprints and the original works, the Space Western fantasies of Edgar Rice Burroughs and the hard science fiction Space Westerns of Isaac Asimov, even the crappy little Space Operas and Bat Durstons, all of them are “a poem and a story.” — ed, N.E.
