The August Vampeer: Narrative Verse

122 pages1 hour


Stories of vampire tyrants, stories of hidden kings, stories of kidnapped guitar heroes, stories of witch mothers, and stories of cannibal Communists: such are the stories told in dark narrative verse, and found in the pages of The August Vampeer, a compelling and richly textured collection of poetry composed by master poet Simon Pole, author of The Saga of Terminal City and Poems for Ocean.


His mind corrupted by childhood exposure to horror movie matinees, but equally enthralled by the atmosphere of old churches, Simon Pole writes cosmic poetry from the location of Vancouver, British Columbia.
