Here’s the write-up I sent out to subscribers to The Goreletter:
Longtime readers probably have heard of Freakcidents — my collection of impossible mutants and truly freaky freaks. It’s like American Horror Story, only weirder, and in poetic form. Originally published in a very limited run of hardcovers and chapbooks by the now-defunct but still-awesome Shocklines Press, the book won a Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Poetry Collection before it went out of print and disappeared into the velvet-lined coffins of collectors. Well, now it’s available for everyone in two new formats: an ebook exclusively on amazon kindle, and a brand new audiobook version, where you can hear me recite the poems as you read along.
[You can also get the audiobook via amazon.com for your kindle or iTunes for your Music player, but if you join Audible you can get it free (or at a healthy discount if you’re already a member); same goes for the ebook on Kindle Unlimited!]
You can learn more about the book and listen to three sample poems over on the Mastication Publications website.
“Freakcidents is fun, tight, thought-provoking and challenging with each ooze and scream. This volume should very much be looked upon as the watershed moment for modern horror poetry. Buy it.” — Lurid Lit
“Michael A. Arnzen, award winning poet and fiction writer, can always be counted on to approach the grotesque and the visceral with wit and, often, compassion….but be prepared: Arnzen doesn’t hold back, and his imagery is both visceral and explicit. Freakcidents is smart, nasty, and very well-written – horror poetry doesn’t get much better than this.” — Tim Pratt, Star*line
[Freakcidents is the first professional audiobook from Mastication Publications. I’m pleased to also report that Audiovile is also available for listening on Audible. And if audiobooks are your bag, be sure to visit my new bandcamp page for others, along with “merch” for diehard collectors! More soon!]
