Sound familiar? Nearly everyone knows that the stories in the tabloids aren’t ral, but pulp newspapers like the Weekly World News outsell most “real news” magazines. And that’s because—in some suble, unconcious way—the tabloids are reporting the truth.
In Paratabloids, Bram Stoker Award-winning horror writer Michael A. Arnzen captures that truth in 22 poems that steal actual headlines from the tabloids and tell the truth in a way that only Arnzen can. These poems all relish the outre, the insane, and the grotesque, telling the untold—and often quite touching—stories that lie right under the surface of the headlines.
“This is poetry like you’ve never heard it before!”
