About this title


Poetry. Also the author of HYPNOGOGIC SONNETS, ALPHA RUINS, and MOUTH OF SHADOWS, this latest work by Charles Borkhuis is not to be missed. "One could call Charles Borkhuis a hardboiled, Hegelian cyberpunk--and that's just for starters. In this latest book, he offers a witty, if disturbing, set of lessons in fear that move between weightlessness and the visceral with amazing speed. Decadent, satiric, surreal, his poems are like probes exploring the corpse of culture. His lyric power has never shined brighter than in this dark light"--Elain Equi.
