Poetry in one form or another has been around almost as long as language. We have used it to communicate our joys and heartbreaks, our victories and our losses. But fear has also been a constant companion, and our ghost stories and monsters stretch their claws back into history as far as the eyes can see. The second chapbook in this collection, ‘In Service of Slaughter’ explores twenty-five more poetic forms. Ranging from the English Madrigal to the nearly unheard of Magic-9 poem. This collection moves through nightmares to the forefront of cinematic pop culture and explores the world of serial killers and supernatural slashers. Masked killers and revenants rise from the swamp to trudge through poems celebrating the hunt for victims.

These take dark and demented to a whole new level. Dive into the mind of a crazed killer, feel their joy and excitement as they kill.… At first you’ll be shocked, then uneasy, then you’ll start to dig deeper. This book will leave you twisted.
