Bryan Dietrich's The Monstrance

I've had the pleasure of working with Dietrich in the past, and before that, I've always admired his writing. He can take popular culture and use it as poetic language in ways I haven't seen any other contemporary poet do. Currently, his Frankenstein book The Monstrance (Belfire/Needfire) is making it's way through the HWA Stoker Awards process. I'm going to keep any opinion about the HWA or the Stokers' poetry category to myself, since I have not actively been watching as much the last few years. In short, I'm grossly uniformed and out of date on whether or not the HWA has instituted reforms. Still, it's a great book and well worth looking into. This is a Kindle link.
