KICKSTARTER: Poems of Grave Importance

I was sent some information on a Kickstarter that I think that fans of the site may be interested in.

Ridley Mortis has a new book of horror poems and limericks to delight and disgust your whole skeleton crew of fiendish friends or rotten relatives. The book is called Poems of Grave Importance and it’s chock full of horror poems in the spirit of ghastly greats like Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Addams, H.P. Lovecraft, and Edward Gorey.

He’s even recruited some of the best artists around to contribute their dark and disturbing drawings to accompany these ghastly tales of the morbid and macabre including Mitch O’Connell, Jeff Carlson, IB Trav, Jeff Lassiter, Rosita Perez, Teresa Simmons, Eric Rot, Anothony J. Lombardini, Angela Grant, Hilary Barta, Tom Kelly and Marcos Caldas.

During the Poems of Grave Importance fundraising campaign, there will be a monstrous amount of incentives including digital, paperback, and hardback versions of Poems of Grave Importance, related stickers, postcards, t-shirts, tote bags and autographed posters by horror celebrities including Brinke Stevens (Slumber Party Massacre), Herschell Gordon Lewis (Blood Feast), John Waters (Pink Flamingos), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies), Gary Sherman (Dead and Buried), Ari Lehman (Friday The 13th) and more. You can even get a poem read to you by one of those celebrities for your contribution!

The plan is to print 1,000 hardcover 6 X 8 books and ship them to your door and independent book stores, comic shops and to anyone with deviously discerning tastes.

How do you get involved?
