    My prayers and good vibes (what there are) are with all of you! I'm hoping we get through this and back to normal sooner than we expect.

    They are worth more than you can imagine. One quarter of the way in 2020 has been the toughest year of my life. Better days are ahead but many rough days remain in the path to those better days.

I believe that one will display why you need to stick with the Intermission. The only drawback, and it is a minor one, I kept trying to read the first story of Act Three in a poetic cadence.

    Mr. Freeman, I can't convey how much I am enjoying this read. Thank you and keep the creative book ideas coming!
    I'm glad to hear that the poetry is good. Robert Payne Cabeen is an excellent poet and does a lot of fun with horror in poetry. If you haven't already, check out his collection Fearworms. It's great.

    I will look that up, thank you for the recommendation. Often Poetry is a chore for me to read. The poetry in this book felt more like ready good short stories, just in poetic prose.

    That's the kind of poetry I like as well. Any other favorite poems in this collection? Maybe I can help point you in other poetry directions.

    I checked to see if the book you recommended was available from Powell's since I am looking for items to buy from them. Unfortunately it is not but the publisher is selling it via Amazon. I may give it a shot.

    Christina Sng had multiple good poems included in this volume.

    Glad to hear that Amazon at least has it. I'm not a huge fan of free verse but I have read Christina Sng's A Collection of Nightmares, which I believe won the Stoker Award, and it wasn't bad. I liked the post-apocalypse themes.

    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.

    Correct, I was speaking of Fearworms. The publisher is selling via Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-list...6205811&sr=8-1

    I was genuinely surprised at how much I enjoyed the poetry in this book. Another author with multiple good poems in the book was Stephanie M. Wytovich. Any suggestions you have will be welcome. Clowns by Cabeen stuck with me the most so he is who I will probably first.

    I'm not the biggest fan of hers but out of what I've read, I liked Brothel. Mourning Jewelry was another that wasn't bad.

    I was hopeful to nab a copy from a canceled order or ARC. Given the current situation I'm wanting to support more norw than ever USA companies.

    Hi everyone, does anyone know when this book will publish? I think I'm flat out of luck trying to get a new copy.

    Thanks Dan! Do you think I'll be able to get a used copy? I've never really tried this hard to get a CD book!

    Almost certainly. I also wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with extras, from cancellations and what not.
