For the past several years Vick has been approaching authors and asking them to provide her with three words, from which she has then built a poem.
Some are short, some are long, all are touched by wonder. Just Three Words contains the results of this project: 53 poems, all original to the book, inspired by words from the late great Iain Banks and Tanith Lee (both of whom saw the poems shortly before their passing and were suitably impressed) and the equally great and thankfully still current Mark Gatiss, China Miéville, Alan Moore, Ramsey Campbell, Peter F. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Kelley Armstrong, Jeff VanderMeer, Nancy Kress, Guy Gavriel Kay, Trudi Canavan, Sarah Pinborough, Brent Weeks, Pat Cadigan, Joe Abercrombie, Lauren Beukes, Dan Abnett, Stephen Baxter, Paul Cornell, Ian Watson, and many more…
