Beneath the shroud of night hides the darkness within men's minds, things that slither and creep, classic devils, cemetery angels, and death in all its poetic guises. Take the hand, if you dare, of your zombie guide and traverse the dark places that await within.
"In Shroud Of Night, G. O. Clark's deft horror poetry explores the gradations -- and degradations -- of human darkness." - Kendall Evans, award winning author of In Deepspace Shadows.
"Original images are hard to come by in horror poetry, but Clark delivers, again and again. There is humor here, but who said humor and horror don't go together? Shroud Of Night brings a lot of darkness together in a handy package." - David C. Kopaska-Merkel, award winning author of The Simian Ape.
"Humor and horror can be uneasy kissing cousins, but go together well in this collection of macabre poems that G. O. Clark has crafted with a light touch. Here you'll find cribbed actor's nightmares, an inconvenient head in an icebox, a squid-like monster ruminating deep under the sea before rising to snack on the cruise-ship unwary and much more: funny, just a little blood-curdling, and occasionally poignant." - Samantha Henderson, award winning poet and author of Heaven's Bones.
"In Shroud Of Night G. O. Clark's poetry doesn't just chill you with its weirdness; it often goes for a sucker punch right to your gut. This is horror poetry at its best: writing that is deftly morbid, terrifyingly astute, while also being playful in a way that horror fiction just can't touch. - Michael A. Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Proverbs for Monsters.
"Shroud of Night by G. O. Clark is a superb mix of humor and dark imagery, turning innocent words into multi-layered snapshots of hell that I couldn't stop reading. Clark pulls the veil off nightmares, making madness deliciously addictive." - Linda D. Addison, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Being Full of Light, Insubstantial.
Trade Paperback: 6" x 9", 12 point full color cover, 60lb. natural vellum stock.
