I kicked off Supporting Friends Friday announcing the publication of my friend Jeremy Miles‘s third book of poetry, Hindsight: Poetry in 2020 (it’s available in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle editions). The publication of a buddy’s book seemed like the perfect time to celebrate and support my friends’ various achievements.
That was in June. Now, just three months later, Jeremy has cranked out another collection, one about which I am very excited: Haunted Verses Haunting: A Halloween Collection (available in paperback and Kindle editions for $15 and $2.99, respectively).
The poems in this volume appear in Jeremy’s first three releases (get them here, here, and here), so they’ve seen publication before, but if you love Halloween—and I definitely do—this collection puts all of his spookiest poems together in one place. If you love Halloween and you’re a cheapskate, you can save some cash and pick up the present volume (though I highly recommend you purchase his entire oeuvre, as I have done—at least in paperback).
Jeremy definitely loves Halloween, too, and often says he wishes every day were Halloween. That might rob the holiday of some of its magic, but I appreciate the sentiment: Halloween these days seems to get short shrift during the holiday season, with the commercialized version of Christmas stretching its imperialistic tentacles deep into October—and even September! But that’s all to say that a guy who loves Halloween that much is going to release some of the spookiest, most spine-tingling poetry you’ll ever read.
