    I rescued this book at the Calgary Horror Con because I couldn t stand to see it sitting there like an orphaned puppy, waiting for someone to pick it up This kind of puppy, however, is for very special owners It drinks human blood and shifts in and out of reality like a shadow in a strobe light.For those who have not been exposed to Poppy s work, this is an excellent primer for what is to come And, honestly, if you haven t read at least something by Poppy Z Brite,your horror education is sor I rescued this book at the Calgary Horror Con because I couldn t stand to see it sitting there like an orphaned puppy, waiting for someone to pick it up This kind of puppy, however, is for very special owners It drinks human blood and shifts in and out of reality like a shadow in a strobe light.For those who have not been exposed to Poppy s work, this is an excellent primer for what is to come And, honestly, if you haven t read at least something by Poppy Z Brite,your...

    Every once in a while you stumble across an artist who is in the wrong time Poppy is one of those authors, and artist who seems as if she was born too late to be happy From reading her stories you can envision her walking with the likes of Lovecraft and Poe I assume they would discuss language, the beauty of the written word and the terrors of their hearts Brite has a style that harkens back to the 1800 s when flowing language and beauty could be found in even the darkest of tales This coll Eve...

    Twelve stories of artists cursed with dangerous talents and intimacies shared even after death and further tales of Lost Souls s Steve and Ghost In an otherwise useless introduction, Dan Simmons writes that Brite s work may be described perhaps even by her as splatterpunk, but it is not xxiv Brite s early fiction is as lush as it is repulsive, often entrenched in the humid South, at its best taking the guts and gore of what might be splatterpunk to a level which is resonant and haunt Twelve stories of artists cursed with dangerous talents and intimacies shared even after death and further tales of...
