Icicles collects 99 of William P. Robertson's best-known horror poems that were published in magazines worldwide from the 1980's through 2002. Gothic horror, sci-fi, Medieval fantasy, and humorous horror are represented here in both rhymed and free verse styles. Robertson is also excellent with a camera, and his eerie photos add an extra chill to this anthology. The author cites Lovecraft, Poe, and Jim Morrison as his major influences. The dark word pictures he paints are reminiscent of those masters' work. In Robertson's world, wasted trees writhe with rigor mortis as the wind retreats like a lung-shot beast!
