“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"I think the people on this forlorn planet, the aliens, the severely disabled spacers, the junkyard technology, etc., leave the reader (I hope) with a far larger picture of terrible wars, unthinkable distances---a great many stories, secrets, lost causes and fears, that we'll never know. I think every good story should do that. My favorite stories and novels are those that come off well on
their own, but leave such a sense of wonder behind. The untold parts of the stories are often what make the stories themselves so wonderful."
