I was reading the review of the current issue of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly on the Swords and Sorcery blog and realized I hadn’t scrolled down the contents page far enough when I read HFQ this past week. I missed the final poem altogether. That poem was “Legend” by Colleen Anderson. I found the poem to be somewhat depressing. That’s a good thing in this context. The poem was a moving look at a legend’s passing, and I Ms. Anderson did a good job of capturing the feeling of loss that would accompany such a thing.
My apologies to Ms. Anderson, the editorial team at HFQ, and my readers for the oversight.
