Cover Reveal: Embrace the Hideous Immaculate

Back of the Book: Embrace the Hideous Immaculate is an excursion through nightmarish landscapes, vast alien terrains and shallow earthly trenches. Within these realms of darkness await outer space monstrosities, ancient undead goddesses, serial killer prophets, and revenants from the Deep South and South Pacific.

In a collection that marries literary and contemporary horror, Hensley uses gothic subtext with a modern spin to send the living to the grave while the dead rise and walk the streets. The poetry contained in Embrace the Hideous Immaculate is unflinching and grotesque, mixing gore and depravity with verse that is both evocative and illuminating as noted by renowned Lovecraftian author and scholar Wilum H. Pugmire’s insightful introduction. Meet the Author: A crafted reporter

One was called Heritage. It is an intense curriculum of Western Civilization. Starting with the dawn of Mankind and ending with speculations about the future, the program combines history, lit
