"All of us who knew the late Steve Abbott will now be happy that the stone has rolled back, to reveal the amazing accomplishment of Beautiful Aliens, poet Jamie Townsend's masterful take on Steve's multigenre work. Prose, poetry, journalism, the essay, the comic book, the novel: Steve was driven to try his hand at all these categories, excelling more often then you'd think possible. It's time that people knew a genius (of sorts) once lived at the corner of Haight and Ashbury." –Kevin Killian
