    *This book is a nest of dark shadows: new autumnal poems from the Pennsylvania landscape; a wild fantasy of the liberation of Poland by rebellious pianos; the author's usual attacks on politics and organized religion; and several works of whimsy and satire. Factsheet Five called this "Fantastic, rebellious poetry!" There's also an unusual departure, the poet's first formal, rhymed poems (two sonnets and a longer poem in quatrains) in nearly 20 years.

    Pieter Vanderbeck.
    *One of Greenwich Village's most widely-published poets delights and stirs the reader once again with a big new book -- a garland of poems in memoriam for the poet's folk-singing daughter, counter-poised with poems about her own life-long love for the piano and lore. Striking narrative poems recount the poet as a child prodigy, studying with a grand master in long-gone Chautauqua summers. The others recount the sad fate of her daughter, in heart-rending expressions of loss, anguish, and remembrance.

    {Twilight_Dictators_1st_ed_small.jpg}
    Brett Rutherford and Pieter Vanderbeck. Twilight of the Dictators: Poems of Tyranny and Liberation. 84 pp. Laser print on acid-free paper and hand-bound. Illustrated by Pieter Vanderbeck. A few copies were also bound hardcover.
    This drama, based partially on letters, poems, and texts of America's greatest horror writer, is a penetrating psychological and literary portrait of the Providence-born writer who deserves top ranking among all horror writers since Poe. This play takes you into Lovecraft's study as he reflects on his life and writing in the last year of his life. The author's insane mother and estranged wife make an appearance, along with various phantom voices who read passages from his writing. This play was performed twice in Providence during the Lovecraft centennial year. Additional text in this volume includes, "At Lovecraft's Grave," an elegy written for the 50th anniversary of Lovecraft's death, and several other HPL-related poems. 250 copies were printed, with a handful in hardcover.

    Chandler. One Tree Forest. 8456 pp. Offset printed. The author and I were both unhappy with how the cover came out. I had a full carton of the books remaining and was ready to design a new cover and have the book rebound. The author became the Rhode Island Poet Laureate and didn't answer our phone calls thereafter, so we finally just sent the books to the landfill.
