There are three poems by N.A. Foy. The first being Embrace the Shadow which is my favorite out of the three. The second poem in the anthology is The Temple and his third poem closes out the work with Grasping the Remains of a Dream. I'm not someone who reads a lot of poetry, but I really enjoyed the three that were featured.

This is an interesting anthology of poems and short stories. All of the short stories have a fantastical slant to them, and all felt like excerpts of larger works, which I would happily keep reading, if given the chance. The poems were characterized by vivid imagery, which is an impressive feat, given that it was accomplished in a relatively small number of words.
It is difficult for me to pick a favorite out of the short stories. I enjoyed them all equally, although for different reasons. Tiama

Three poems and two short stories are what make up Bitter Blackout. My favorite of the anthology is (hands down) The Harrowing. It’s an exciting story of love, loss and a great journey.

I hope one day the author will continue it so we can see where Garett and Alice end up in the long run. I’d also like to know if Alice got her revenge AND if the awesome Riven was truly happy with his pac ...more

This is a collection of short stories. I really enjoyed the elf story at the beginning. I wouldn't consider these poetry as others have. But it's a great short read. WaAR ...more

I am not one that usually reads very much but, I started to read Bitter Blackout and it was so interesting that I could not stop. I enjoyed this book tremendously and would recommend it for anyone to read. Tiamae was one of the most interesting, the description of the characters was so descriptive as I was reading I could picture them as if they were performing a motion picture in my mind and the plot was so intense that I was unable to put it down. As far as all of the stories and poems I could ...more
