From Bram Stoker Award-winner Chad Helder comes The Vampire Bridegroom, his sweeping collection of horror poems and tales that explore the dark crevices of genre in a spectrum of forms. Included here in this horror collage are poems that yearn to be horror movies. From a nightmarish array of vampires in the landscape of troubled youth to beastly transformations and horrifying awakenings... from the twisted theories of Hansel Fruehner--the perverted and blasphemous student of Freud--to scary fairy tales. Along the way, explore the mythos of the Gory Boy and Queen Bloody Mary, encounter the ever-present figure of Satan in the mind of a preacher's son and, of course, meet the sharp-toothed title character himself.
