"Every time Bruce Boston releases a new collection of poetry, I have to resist the urge to proclaim it his finest. Once again he has created such a collection. Artifacts is a finely woven tapestry of speculative poetry. Within this lovely cloth are gems such as 'Sailors Evermore,' 'Triptych of the Tower,' poems inspired by Robert W. Chambers King-in-Yellow stories, 'The Surreal Fountain Pen,' and delicious short poems such as 'Blurred Future' and 'Failing Masterpiece.' Reading this volume was more than enjoyable, it was a privilege."
- David E. Cowen, author of Bleeding Saffron
"Good poets, by their talent, draw you in to read their work. Great poets, by their talent, compel you to experience their work by creating memorable sensory imagery. Boston is a great genre poet, perhaps our best ever. I knew this when I read the unforgettable images in his poems of the Mutant Rain Forest. Down through the years I've looked forward to each of his collections, experiencing remarkable imagery told in compelling language. Artifacts is another of these wonderful collections. But don't take my word, experience some of my favorites here: 'The Surreal Fountain Pen,' 'Salamanders: Fire,' 'Sailors Evermore,' and 'One More Shade in the Shadow City.' Each of these poems demonstrates the imagery and precision that make Boston the best."
- Gene O'Neill, author of Frozen Shadows
"In his 40th poetry collection, Boston meets the challenge of free verse with the same ease with which he makes the familiar strange and the alien strangely familiar. A brilliant cascade of music, math, myth, and literary motif, Artifacts excavates what lies beneath the everyday."
- Kyla Ward, author of The Land of Bad Dreams
