Description


"Monsters, mutants and mad mayhem punctuate this poetic exploration of death and the deadly. Rarely has poetry been put to such ghastly use. The results are horrifyingly great."
Jack Halberstam, author of Skin Shows: Gothic Horror and the Technology of Monsters and The Queer Art of Failure

"Those of you who have long suspected that Evan J. Peterson is the love child of Bette Davis and the Marquis de Sade will find your suspicions confirmed here. Shot in Hollywood and edited in a clammy French dungeon, Skin Job is part seduction, part coercion, all pure pleasure.
David Kirby, author of Talking about Movies with Jesus and The Ha-Ha

Skin Job is the opening salvo of the new wave of science fiction and horror poetry. Evan J. Peterson, horror poetry columnist, debuts his own first collection of horror and sci-fi poetry in this meditation on monstrosity. Stitching together such visceral inspirations as David Cronenberg, Allen Ginsberg, David Lynch, H. P. Lovecraft, Sylvia Plath, Oscar Wilde, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Skin Job raises the bar on so-called "genre" poetry. Now available from Minor Arcana Press, the poetry imprint of Squall Publishing. Find the book trailer, a short horror film, at the Minor Arcana Press website.
