“Bryan Dietrich’s long-form poem referencing Star Trek’s ‘Prime Directive’ is an aboslute necessity for the book shelf of every geek.”
Review of: Prime Directive by Bryan D. Dietrich

“Needfire Press once again proves itself the leading publisher of horror poetry, with this collection of works of “terror, madness, pain, and sorrow” (as White himself glosses in the Introduction). In Vicious Romantic, White deftly utilizes Japanese and Korean verse forms (e.g. haiku comprise the “stanzas” of select poems); the writing, as a result, is at once tight and resonant.”

“This collection isn’t child’s play, people. This is some intensely crafted material, deep and dark enough to remind us there are things that go bump in the night, and monsters do, in fact, lurk under the bed. Wrath does a fine job of reminding us all… life doesn’t play favorites, and death isn’t fair, right?”
