Alexis Child's YouTube page from her book, Devil in the Clock: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg6S5u4yX73kA1ZWGnKaEBA
Sat up by the fire one evening reading this dark little book. Paired well with Malbec, but when phantoms cast by the snapping flames began to dance with Child's haunting poetry, I knew I was in for a sleepless night.
With odes to Jack the Ripper, and nuances of Leilah Wendell, Child's expressions and observations of all things sinister and wicked are quite penetrating. One imagines a cloaked enchantress uttering these invocations from deep within her lair. The words are alive.
Night Visitations: Les Incubus
A talented poet, a twisted wordsmith, a connoisseur of imagery, an architect of nightmares, Child does not disappoint.
