Information about the illustrator.
A collection of dark poetry by one of the industry’s finest craftsman. Beautifully illustrated by Daniele Serra.
Whether he’s writing about an errant siren, a grimoire, a vulture, or the apocalyptic implosion of our way of life, Boston does it with stunning and unexpected complexity. There is a sense of completeness to his poems, a sense that he has turned the thing around and looked at it from every angle. He offers insights that are startling in their clarity, and—after he’s shown them to us—completely logical. This is a laudable achievement in and of itself, but the fact that he can balance his eye for detail and his intuition about character with a poet’s ear for the lyrical joy of language is awe-inspiring. —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Quarantined
Blood & Gristle is a collection of twenty screwed up stories paired with twenty exquisite illustrations. It’s about detachable children, and self worth, and hungry, hungry, garbage disposals. It’s about boxes that shape destiny and Magic Eightballs that don’t. It’s about drugs and devils and everlasting, gnashing teeth. It’s about a crack addicted cardiologist looking for love and a nasty basilisk with a taste for kindergarteners. It’s about life and death, sorrow and fear, madness, faith, and all of the squishy, complicated stuff in between. So brace yourself, unplug the goopy gray of your brain, and get ready…things are about to get very, very messy.
