It's like a mix between a book of poetry and a mini collection of short stories. Some of the poems can hardly be considered a poem for me, but together they form a dream-like experience that was quite enjoyable.

I think it's the kind of things to be read leisurely and to not be taken too seriously.

Leopold McGinnis doesn't know much about art, but he knows what he likes. Unfortunately, it's usually not the same thing everyone else likes, so he's just had to make his own. This includes three novels, The Red Fez, Game Quest, and Bad Attitude, and a collection of poetry, Poetaster.

In his spare time Leopold roams across the postapocalyptic literary landscape in search of beating hearts as the fo
