This month renowned speculative poet Marge Simon was kind enough to invite my contribution as guest writer of her column Blood & Spades for the Horror Writers Association newsletter. You can read the column at http://horror.org/private/newsletter/?article=blood-and-spades-3.
While you’re there I have a favor to ask. Please click through links to other features in the newsletter to read columns by other working authors and editors, and catch up on HWA happenings. Know anybody who might benefit from being part of the HWA? Or, maybe somebody who is into poetry and would get a kick of my dissection of how werewolf limericks fit into the literary landscape? Please share the column far and wide. Thanks in advance!
A note about the poems included in the column: the bulk of them are from my forthcoming collection Bibliophobia, which will be my seventh book of poetry. Bibliophobia will be available soon from Raw Dog Screaming Press. Would you like a review copy? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, if you feel like enjoying some more poetry here’s a selection of books by some of my influences in the scene, and some of the names to watch. They are available at https://aerbook.com/store/raw_dog_screaming/Killer_Poetry/10808. Any sales through that link help keep Raw Dog Screaming Press in business, Yes, even sales of the books RDSP didn’t publish!
Most importantly please let me know if there are any poets you think I ought to be reading. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
