Jim Bennett, who reviews poetry for KBR (The Kindle Book Review)and is himself a poet, liked I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust (my collection of science fiction and fantasy poetry, written as Edward Willett) rather a lot, giving it five out of five stars:
“Willett writes speculative fiction, so these poems are unusual. They are also a lot of fun. Willett’s illustrator, Wendi Nordell, has added to our enjoyment of this book with an amazing full-page drawing accompanying each poem. That makes this an even more unusual work…”
He singles out five specific poems, “The Telling,” “Saint Billy,” “I Remember His Eyes,” “I Will Ride Off the Horizon,” and “Emily Alison Atkinson Finds God,” and ends with:
“My personal guidelines, when doing an ‘official’ KBR review, are as follows: five stars means, roughly equal to best in genre. Rarely given. Four stars means, extremely good. Three stars means, definitely recommendable. I am a tough reviewer. I try hard to be consistent. I rate this work on literary merit and enjoy-ability, and I think it is five star material. Highly recommended.”
