A note about “The Thirteenth Hell”

/ Saturday, April 30th, 2011 / No Comments »

This poem, the thirteenth and final piece in my impromptu National Poetry Month series, is practically a fanfic — an unofficial coda of sorts to Laird Barron’s kickass horror novella “Procession of the Black Sloth,” directly inspired by that story’s final moments. It’s a fun poem to perform live.

I’m honored Ellen Datlow chose it for inclusion in her first Best Horror of the Year volume.

(Read and hear the poem here.)
