"Tales and Tombs of Fantasy" is a book of poetry and prose divided into two sections. To me these two sections represent two different books in one. However the author has chosen to address this work as a book so I will refer to the two books as sections. The first section is called "Tales of Fantasy" it has 13 poems. I enjoyed reading 5 of them, the other poems were too full of blood, guts, and gore, being somewhat squeemish I found them difficult to digest.
However the Second section of the book entitled "Tombs of Fantasy " I found more to my liking. For me the poetic prose presented very strong vivid imagery to my mind's eye. I found some of the poems very moving, In particular, "Blessed Walk". In the poems "Death" and "Entrance to Eternity" I enjoyed the paintings of the poetic imagery presented in a juxtapositioned manner.I liked "Journey Home" it reminded me of near death experiences. If you have ever read anything about near death experiences many of the people are given to understand that the earth that we live on is not our real home. That eventually we will be returning to where we really belong. Even though I didn't like some of the poems I am giving this a four because the poetry he wrote moved me at times. If Poetry affects you in this manner it must be good.
