Description

Brett Rutherford writes clear, delightful, readable poems about dark and terrible things. Some will terrify you - others will make you laugh. No poet of our time has written more widely, or better, about vampires, werewolves, angry ghosts, cosmic invaders, sex-starved demons, Egyptian mummies, snake-headed Gorgons, Salem witches, and all the things that go bump in the night. On the lighter side, you can enjoy the racy confessions of Fritz, Dr. Frankenstein's hunchback assistant. This new, expanded, fifth edition of Whippoorwill Road: The Supernatural Poems contains 103 works, among them the best and most-read modern poems about horror legend H.P. Lovecraft. They are all here in this volume, a special treat for fans of America's greatest horror writer: from ceremonial poems written to be read at Lovecraft's grave to narratives based on Lovecraftian themes. The expanded and revised poem cycle, "Things Seen in Graveyards," is also here.
