Book:Lovers & Killers

Lovers & Killers

Mary Turzillo

A new collection of thirty-seven poems from Nebula Award winning author Mary Turzillo (also known as Mary T. Brizzi)! The collection includes twenty-five original poems.

Book:Notes from the Shadow City

Notes from the Shadow City

Gary William Crawford, Bruce Boston

“In Notes from the Shadow City, Crawford and Boston distill a bleak dystopian vision. Alone or together, and utilizing poetry, prose, and photographic images, they have crafted a guidebook, a Baedeker to the same outliers as chronicled by Dostoyevsky, Kafka, and Orwell, where shadows are more real than the gnomons that cast them, and the predominant colors come from the stripped-down underside of the rainbow.”—Robert Borski, author of Blood Wallah and Other Poems

Book:A Verse to Horrors

A Verse to Horrors: An Abecedary of Monsters and the Monstrous

Michael R. Collings

Everybody loves monsters, right? And everybody loves limericks. So…why not limericks about monsters?

This Abecedary (fancy word for A-B-C Book) contains over 150 limerick-like verses dealing with monsters and horrors from fiction, film, and television—from the famous ones like Frankenstein and Dracula to obscurities like The Neanderthal Man and the Monolith Monsters. If you are a fan of B-Movies (there’s even a verse about Drive-Ins), or comics, or more serious treatments of creatures in novels and short stories, there’s something here for you.

The book even includes a list of References and Influences, a bibliography of films and books that have triggered imaginations for decades.

Be prepared to read, to shiver (a little, here and there), and enjoy.
