I'm thrilled to announce a new book release: the new dark poetry novella 'SACRIFICIAL NIGHTS' by Bruce Boston and me, published by Kipple Officina Libraria. The book is available on Amazon (paperback and eBook edition)
Bram Stoker Award Winners Bruce Boston and Alessandro Manzetti combine their poetic and narrative talents in a poetry novella that blends the genres of horror, surrealism, crime, and noir. Set in a large America city, Sacrificial Nights follows the lives of some of those who inhabit its late-night streets: prostitutes, pimps, a thief, an arsonist, a police detective, a psychotic killer, and more. Their tales and the tale of the city itself are richly complemented by British artist Ben Baldwin’s striking illustrations. This is a dark read with some explicit graphic content.
“Original, intelligent and exquisitely rendered, Sacrificial Nights is an absolute tour de force, a richly layered Chinese Box of sorts, where each part is as important as the whole. In a world of cookie-cutter plots and tired poetry, Sacrificial Nights is a shot of cool night air, shadowy, dangerous, and addictive as sin.”
—Greg F. Gifune, author of The Bleeding Season
"When a book is both lucid and hallucinogenic, the effect can be shocking, luminous … transgressive. The collision of talents in this extraordinary work practically establishes a new genre – macabre noir."
—Robert Dunbar, author of Willy
“Populated by denizens who straddle the line between salvation and damnation, Sacrificial Nightsreads like a flashlight exploration of the darkness lurking behind closed doors and down blind alleys. Boston and Manzetti deftly navigate the shadows where human monsters dwell.”
—Michael McBride, author of Subterrestrial
“The voyeuristic and sadomasochistic latency in art and sex is on stark display in Boston-Manzetti’s epic, with its cinematic images giving flesh to daemonic Street theater where anything can be sacrificed. With startlingly economical poetry, the authors give gritty vitality to the lowlife souls whose moment-to-moment movements are subconscious rituals of destruction. Sacrificial Nights hits just the right notes—with the heavy blow of a Death Metal sledgehammer or thesoft whisper of an Xacto blade through flesh.”
—Randy Chandler, coauthor with t. winter-damon of Duet for the Devil and Forbidden Gospels: The Devil’s Cut
