Blood Wallah and Other Poems by Robert Borski

"If you think there's nothing new to write about the classic characters of horror and fantasy, think again. In this fine collection Robert Borski offers us witty and memorable reflections on Vlad the Impaler, Dorothy's Tin Man, Pinocchio's Gepetto, Rotwang from Metropolis, the Morlocks of H.G. Wells, Poe's Ulalume--even the Tooth Fairy. In Borski's off-kilter world, all of Hell's timepieces are synchronized to 13 o'clock, the hour when "dust-bellied monsters decide / to stop holding their breath for fear of being / detected, and emerge from under the bed." He lets those monsters loose in Blood Wallah and Other Poems, and the grateful reader can't help but be thrilled." - Christopher Conlon, author of Midnight on Mourn Street and Starkweather Dreams

"With Blood Wallah and Other Poems, Borski gives voice to a veritable bestiary of the genre's most beloved myth makers and monsters, providing characterizations that are sympathetic, prophetic and, at times, humorous. An insightful and intelligent collection." - Kurt Newton, author of The Ultimate perVERSEities and Life Among the Dream Merchants

"Robert Borski's Blood Wallah & Other Poems is like a vampire's cellar of fine blood-wines. This is a wide-ranging collection of horror poems that often possess a sharp, humorous edge. One of my favorites is a Jack-the-Ripper piece with a perfectly appropriate illustration by Marge Simon." - Kendall Evans author of Poetry Red-Shifted in the Eyes of a Dragon

"With sly, dark humor and poetic precision, Robert Borski brings originality to his take on vampires, witches, classic myths and familiar legends. Throw in predator paparazzi and a killer toaster, and Blood Wallah is one performance not to be missed." - G.O. Clark author of Shroud of Night and Bone Sprockets.
