Here are some works written by NEHW members that would be great Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers.
Kurt Newton’s new collection of twisted poetry, The Ultimate perVERSEities from Naked Snake Press (www.nakedsnakepress.blogspot.com) features the art of Christopher Friend. The collection collects old and new perVERSEities into a cannibalistic melting pot of the maniacal and the macabre. Twenty new poems join the original cast of forty that comprised the twin chapbooks published by Naked Snake Press in 2004. For those familiar with Newton’s twisted oeuvre, he has added phantom marionettes, balloon clowns and mail order brides to his list of untapped taboos. And for those unfamiliar with Newton’s unsettling blend of darkness and the bizarre, you are in for the ultimate treat.
The Ultimate perVERSEities paperback is available through the publisher’s website and on Amazon. There is also an ebook available at Amazon and at Smashwords (www.smashwords.com/profile/view/nakedsnakepress).
Newton also has a novella, Breaking Eggs, which he wrote with L.L. Soares. It is available from Sideshow Press (www.horror-mall.com/BREAKING-EGGS-by-Kurt-Newton-L.L.-Soares-signed-trade-paperback-edition-p-21462.html).
