Just a quick note of thanks to all who pre-ordered The Gorelets Omnibus directly from the publisher. Soon you’ll have a smooth clean first-on-the-block book in your hands along with a collectible all-original poem on fancy paper for your kindness. Oh, and lots of embarrassingly outrageous exclamations in public when you’re not otherwise dry heaving. Enjoy!
I think this weekend was the deadline to pre-order, but so long as those buttons on their website allow you to preorder, you still might qualify for the free extra during the grace period if you’re quick. If you didn’t preorder, don’t be shy: get one now. The hardcover, if you please. It’s got something in the range of fifty pages of bonus features and really is the ultimate edition of this book. Poets especially will want it for the extra “how to” articles on crafting dark poetry. Read all about it at Raw Dog Screaming Press.

“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

The Gorelets Omnibus collects all the bloody little bits of Michael Arnzen’s poetry written in the past 10 years into one big volume. From the contents of the original Gorelets chapbook and his classic “refrigerator of the damned” online poetry/fridge magnet experiment, to Arnzen’s latest flash fiction and brand new Zombie Haikruel series, this collection chronicles his revolutionary vision for the horror short form. He even received a Bram Stoker Award for Alternative Forms for some of the work included in this book. As one of the first writers to recognize the creative capacity of handheld devices, Arnzen’s pioneering work to deliver gory entertainment in as few characters as possible is still eminently relevant today. Thus, a “casebook of criticism”—a collection of scholarly analyses of Arnzen’s unique approach to the genre—is included alongside the poetry.
