Third collection of stories, vignettes, sketches, and parables highlights those literary qualities that have made Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. a phenomenon in contemporary weird fiction: an impressionistic, prose-poetic style that boldly confronts the reader with vivid metaphors, images of raw horror and exquisite beauty, and a refusal to shy away from the extremes of human experience—love, sex, death, terror, and ecstasy. Pulver continues, as in his earlier work, to draw upon H. P. Lovecraft, Robert W. Chambers, and other classic writers for his inspiration, but he takes his cues also from rock music, avant-garde prose and poetry, and, most of all, from the spectacular phantasmagoria of life in the twenty-first century. Introduction by Matt Cardin.
