Read full description of the books:
James Ward Kirk has edited a fine anthology of horror poetry, short-short stories, and longer stories on the theme, "What happens when we die?" What is fascinating is the diversity of speculations about the afterlife in the stories--and their creepiness. As such, most character's fates, though not all are . . . negative, bad, horrid, terrifying, etc. Some stories present a Christian afterlife; others Buddhist; others more traditional reincarnation; others Lovecraftean. All leave the reader with a feeling of horror, awe, and/or that hint of a chill that stays behind long after the reader finishes the story.
Most of the poetry is quite good; one poem had some punctuation errors, and some poems were weaker than the better poems, but that situation often occurs in anthologies. The best poems carry the reader's emotions into a realm of horror and awe when the poem peels off the layers of the unknown surrounding death to reveal the raw reality underneath. I highly recommend this book to any fan of the horror genre and to other readers interested in speculative fiction on life after death.
[Disclaimer: I do have a story, "Earnest Expectations" in the anthology; I hope the reader finds it sufficiently jarring].
