From ADAM BOLIVAR, author of The Lay of Old Hex, The Ettinfell of Beacon Hill and Ballads for the Witching Hour ...an epic, award-winning ballad of unearthly horror that never fails to bring down the house when performed live... now in a standalone chapbook.

Water, water, everywhere,
     Cthulhu dreams below;
R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn:
     This blasphemy I know.

Seamlessly interweaving Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulhu,” master balladeer Adam Bolivar presents a harrowing tale of mounting terror told in poetic meter which throbs as relentlessly as a tell-tale heart. Winner of the Rhysling Award for long-form poetry, “The Rime of the Eldritch Mariner” will enthrall fans of cosmic horror and Romantic poetry alike. Read it aloud for maximal effect.

8-page chapbook, full color on 80 lb gloss, saddle stitched, 5.5" x 8.5"

Cover collage & layout by Dan Sauer with assist from Gustave Doré
