"Coin Opera" edited by Kirsten Irving and Jon Stone (Sidekick Books, 2009)

A pamphlet on the theme of computer games. I'm not usually keen on themed anthologies especially if there's commissioned work. In this case the pamphlet's style matches the theme, which is fun. There are many allusions to games I've never seen, so I find the poems hard to assess. I didn't get Amy Key's pieces at all. I liked Chrissy Williams' "Goldeneye 007" best. There's VisPo too.
