Introduction David Kopaska-Merkel describes rocks (and the holes in them) for the State of Alabama. He lives with artists and numerous chitin-clad hangers-on in an urban farmhouse with a yellow "tin" roof. He collects wormholes & the like. He was born in Virginia, but has lived in the home of the crookneck as long as anywhere. Kopaska-Merkel has published in the neighborhood of a thousand poems, short stories, reviews, and essays over the past quarter century. He won the Rhysling award of the Science Fiction Poetry Association for best long poem in 2006 for a collaboration with Kendall Evans. Kopaska-Merkel has edited and published Dreams and Nightmares magazine since 1986, and has published a few Rhysling winners over the years.
