Ten Years in the Making...all right here at

"Bored with sleeping? Read this book at night. Michael Arnzen's poems are absolutely terrifying. His writing makes me uncomfortable for all the right reasons. If you enjoy the things that go bump in the night, Arnzen's poems might change your mind. Arnzen is disturbingly, madly, brilliant and I pray for those close to him." —Ryan Mecum, author of Zombie Haiku and Dawn of Zombie Haiku

"This is mandatory reading...brief, vivid poems written with skill, verve, and perverse humor. The Gorelets Omnibus collects nearly everything Arnzen's written under the Gorelets banner, and it's a must-have for the dark-verse aficionado." —Scott Emerson, Morgantown Poets
