The Terraformers by Dan Hoy | September 20, 2017 | Third Man Books
A limited edition pressing in Third Man Books chapbook series, Dan Hoy’s latest collection of poetry chronicles the last days of an expedition stranded on a desolate planet and beset by depression, sabotage and failing equipment. In The Terraformers, human life is mediated by domes and pressure suits, and the history of human beings is buried in ecocide, oppression and longing for the infinite, even if (or because) “the infinite / is death for us.”
