Visionary Poetry For A New Age

In his debut book of poetry, E. P. takes us to a literary circus of twisted beauty, with daring feats of wordplay, cinematic dreams and surrealist fantasies. A place where ideas form into beasts both fantastic and unfathomable.

Then you are led through dark forests of myths, into tombs of history and back out into the sunlight where rock stars and artists tell their tales. You drink to freedom and adventure, above you only clouds.

At last you move from creativity into realization. Your guide awaits.

*Featuring 13 dreamlike line drawings in pen and ink.

Review quote

"If steampunk ever transformed into lyrical form, this book would be the melody...Dark and delightfully twisty." -W. C.

​"The wild, post-apocalytpic imagery, pacing, and disjointed structure of the poetry in this volume immediately called to mind The Wasteland by T.S. Elliot for this reader." -J. B.

​"By no means a bedtime read, this book, a beautiful amalgam of poetry and prose, needs the reader to be alert and engaged on various levels to be able to fully enjoy the poet's creativity." -M

​"Buy this book and you won't be disappointed!" -L. R.
