“I will do such things,” King Lear shouts before the storm, “What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be / The terrors of the earth.”

Drawing upon Edmund Burke’s definition of the sublime—the odd beauty associated with fear and self-preservation; our astonished delight in what destroys, what overpowers and compels us toward darkness—these strange poems mine the siniste

Lovely, introspective poetry. Words that come to my mind to describe the poems are “moody, rich, and atmospheric.” There were poems that mused over life, family, and little moments. My favorites were the character study poems, such as Wayne or Lenora at the Window. Other poems that stood out were Kindergarten and The Organ Grinder. Good stuff.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an unbiased review.

This book of poetry/Prose/Flash Fiction is way before it's time, to fully appreciate this work you need to be living in a dystopian future where the survivors are few, buildings are in ruin and people are a little bit mad. If you live in that future then great, start reading this book, if that future hasn't arrived for you yet then still read this book to get you ready.

I am a fan of Rusticles by Rebecca Gransden and this book's meandering randomness fits in perfectly. One of my favourites in thi

A strange and beautiful book. I don't recommend bingeing this brief collection before bed--or maybe I do.

“"I will do such things,” King Lear shouts before the storm, “What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be / The terrors of the earth.” Drawing upon Edmund Burke’s definition of the sublime—the odd beauty associated with fear and self-preservation; our astonished delight in what destroys, what overpowers and compels us toward darkness—these strange poems mine the sinister fault lines between weird fiction, expressionism, gothic horror, and notions of the absurd, cracking the mundane shell of ...more

I received this one for review from NetGalley.

My rating is closer to a 3.5 than a 4 but Goodreads doesn't allow for 1/2 stars.

I don't claim to have any understanding of poetry at all and I feel like that really impacted my ability to enjoy this collection. There were so many poems that I know had a deeper meaning than what I was getting, but I had no idea what I was reading. That being said I found the writing really beautiful and did really enjoy some of the ones from section two. I think The

I received a copy of these poems from #netgalley in exchange for my review. If you enjoy writing that’s described as “a fever dream,” then these poems are for you. The language builds arresting and often disturbing or grotesque images. As well as that was done, however, I found the poems somewhat hollow.

I breezed through this horror anthology quickly and blissfully. Each poem withstands on its own and gives off their fair share of creeps. This collection is one of those that you truly have to focus on to get the full effect that they try to evoke.

Thank you Netgalley and Brooklyn Art Press for the chance to read this horrifying collection.

I requested this because I haven't read poetry in a long time and I thought the fact that this was mixed with horror would be a good reintroduction to reading poetry. However, I couldn't really get onboard with this. But I'll start with a positive as say what wonderfully creepy cover art this collection has!

A lot of the imagery in this collection is rather grotesque, and some of the subjects of the poems are dark, so I understand the horror genre label. However, the poems didn't frighten me, giv

DNF @ 24% therefore, I won't be giving this any star rating.

I like poetry, and I like horror. This wasn't at all what I was expecting, it seemed like random nonsensical ramblings by someone who's swallowed a dictionary.

I'm not sure how important a characters breath stench is when it comes to creative writing, but Joe Fletcher has a thing about it. Yuk.

I didn't understand what I was reading, I tried very hard to connect with what the author was trying to portray, but I simply didn't get it.

I got a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I requested this book because I wanted to try something different. I've read poetry before but this one I felt like some of the poems I just couldn't get into. I had a couple of favorite ones that I really enjoyed. Isaiah, The Colorado, Northwest Passage, and The Wake. As for the horror aspect, I didn't really find one that gave me the creeps or frightened me. Overall if your someone who can get lost in poetry this would b

*I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review*

I’m a massive fan of Edgar Allen Poe so when this poetry collection was compared to his I knew i just had to pick it up however, I didn’t enjoy this poetry collection as much as I was hoping to. I enjoyed some of the poems such as Kindergarten, The Wake, The Hatch and Palmdale Area but most of them I didn’t really understand. 1.5 stars.

I said it before and I'm saying it again - poetry is a complex genre to review. But I saw this and it looked interesting - a collection of poems with horror undertone? Yes, please. However, upon receiving an ARC, I realized it wasn't for me - at all. Poetry is very subjective in it's nature but it rarely ever happens to me that I don't get it AT ALL. Reading The Hatch was like reading empty words - just random combinations of flowery phrases glued together to generate a decent sized chunk of tex ...more

This collection is an ambitious mixture of prose and poetry, and the prose definitely outshines the poetry. I found the flash fiction title piece to be stunning, but sadly most of the poetry seemed to just be lists of images the author thought might seem uncanny but fell short.

Aside from the odd prose poem not much was done with the form and I was left a little underwhelmed, I don’t really think this collection felt like poetry to me, partly because poetic technique was lacking though that’s ju

This was an interesting set of poems. A story in each poem. Did not seem like a set of poetry at first but really nice.
