Congrats to Mike Arnzen who just won his third Stoker. This time he received it for his fabulously funky poetry collection Freakcidents. If you don’t have it already, you can buy it here:

Anyway, although Mike humbly denied being a poet in his acceptance speech I have to say that I think he has had a lot to do with the fact that there is any interest in horror poetry at all. It’s through the persistance of authors like Mike who refuse to give up on poetry just because it isn’t lucrative that keeps dark verse alive.
