‘Astroverse: Sci-Fi Poems’ marks the author’s second book, after ‘Petrichor’. This book is a collection of poems composed against a backdrop of space travel and exploration, astronomical phenomena, futurism, dystopia, droids, A.I. sentience and much more. Under these themes are encrypted stories, messages, events, original characters, their thoughts, lives and activities. Laid out in verses and rhymes, each poem is supported by drawings and illustrations by the author making use of her unique and unconventional art style, as the drawings inspired ideas for certain poems and sometimes, vice versa.
