Just Released: 2 Powerful Poetry Collections
Embrace the Hideous Immaculate is an excursion through nightmarish landscapes, vast alien terrains and shallow earthly trenches. Within these realms of darkness await outer space monstrosities, ancient undead goddesses, serial killer prophets, and revenants from the Deep South and South Pacific. Bram Stoker Award nominee, Chad Hensley, pushes the reader face first off a cliff and into the bottomless, abyssal plain where vast horrors lurk underground in cities made from infant bones.
â€œSick, macabre, and charged with lyrical intensity.â€ â€”Nasty Piece of Work
Mourning is the new blackâ€¦
The tradition of mourning jewelry began with Queen Victoria after the death of her husband, Prince Albert. Without photography, mementos of personal remembrance were important to commemorate the lost and keep their spirits close.
Wytovich explores the horror that breeds inside these lockets, the quiet terror hiding in the center of the rings. She shows that mourning isnâ€™t a temporary state, but rather a permanent sickness, an encompassing disease. Her women are alive and dead, lovers and ghosts. They live in worlds that we cannot see, but that we can feel at midnight.
"The Grim Reaper himself would drop his jaw reading some of these beautifully decadent poems.â€ â€”Michael Arnzen

Pre-Order The Man Who Loved Alien Landscapes
~Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week, May 12~
â€œIn Wendlandâ€™s intricately plotted, character-driven debut, pulp exploration meets philosophical speculation, and a moralistic sensibility is fused with Philip K. Dickâ€™s paranoid fantasies and Ray Bradburyâ€™s awe of alien encounters.â€¦Impending doom pervades ripping action scenes, the Lovecraftian theme of ancient warring aliens lends cosmic menace and authenticity to a grandiose mysteryâ€¦deeply absorbing.â€â€”Publishers Weekly starred review
Kindle Countdown Deal
Gardens of Earthly Delight by George WIlliams is now on sale. The price will go up soon so don't wait to purchase!
â€œIn his first short story collection, Williams shows a darkly comic sensibility more akin to that of the filmmaking Coen brothers (think Barton Fink) than to more obvious literary influences. His swift, choppy dialog (no quotation marks), quickly shifting scenes, and peculiar interest in archaic religious weaponry (armor, swords, and shields) make for a wild ride from story to storyâ€¦Recommended to adventurous readers, who will surely enjoy Williamsâ€™s wildly irreverent inventions.â€â€”Library Journal
