Android Girl: And Other Sentient Speculations

(1 customer review)


Android Girl is the perfect title for this collection of poetry. Like an android, this collection balances humanity and machine with an adequate dose of horror. Michael expresses himself in a variety of forms, utilizing both rhyme and free verse to offer wry warnings and submerged truths.

Android Girl is a deliciously varied collection from the industrious pen of Michael H. Hanson, wherein you may find your own truths in his winsome verses. A section titled “Phased Transitions” is mostly dedicated to big names in SF, with lines such as “The box is closed, terrors mildew/the master of our world is mute” (for Richard Matheson). With some nostalgic, some amusing, even a few profound, Hanson offers us a mix we can’t refuse. Buy a copy for your shelves and share!”

    Evidently, Hanson has many works, but I just (accidentally) purchased this one and it’s my first read of his. I was amazed by the range of subjects, diversity of the characters, the insightful observations, and most importantly the quality of each piece. I didn’t keep track of how many Poems/Essays are included but estimate at least 60+ (10+/- of them about the Android Girl). I totally enjoyed at least 90% of them. Highly recommended, even if you haven’t tried this style of book previously (which I hadn’t!).
