Things That Go Bump in the Night – Poetry of Fear and Fright is the most recent publication by R.J. Schwartz.
It can be summed up as a frightening collection of dark, grisly, and disturbing poetry, certainly not for the faint of heart. As you turn each page, you’ll feel a growing urge to escape from the building momentum, as the tantalizing words dredge up your deepest fears and feed your nightmares. It’s a breakneck journey of wickedness as tales of ancient rituals, lurking creepers, cursed location, and demonic beasts fill your mind. You stand poised on the edge of sanity, staring down into the darkest depths of the abyss, fearing that which may leap out, but terrified of that which stays hidden in the acrid smoke below. With no boundaries on depravity, mayhem, and human suffering, this collection is certain to drive your senses to new levels of hopelessness and despair. Feed your inner demon, if you dare, and beware of things that go bump in the night.
To experience fear, is to experience life.
Without the sense of fear,
there cannot be a sense of security.
-R. J. Schwartz
