The Devil's Wine
edited by Tom Piccirilli

About the Book:
"Poetry is the devil's wine." — St. Augustine

The poetry found within The Devil's Wine is deeply moving, affecting, and deals with the human condition in a way that only those who've danced along the edge of the abyss are capable of understanding. One of the contributors, Jay Bonansinga, calls The Devil's Wine "a unique compendium of thriller writers moonlighting in the world of dark verse."

The contributors include Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Peter Straub, Graham Masterton, Charles De Lint, Jack Ketchum, Joe Haldeman, Michael Bishop, Jack Cady, Steve Rasnic Tem, Melanie Tem, Peter Crowther, TM Wright, Brian Hodge, Edward Lee, Elizabeth Massie, Jay Bonansinga, and Tamara Thorne.

The Cemetery Dance hardcover is the only edition for this title, and many of the nearly 200 poems have never appeared anywhere else. Stephen King's amazing contributions were originally published in small venues during his college years and these publications now resell for thousands of dollars due to their scarcity. The King poems hadn't seen print in over 30 years—this is the only time they have ever been reprinted!

This very special volume is a must-have for any collector of modern horror and any lover of good, scary poetry.
