The Hatch by Joe Fletcher

There is something magical about the words “Something wicked this way comes…” this is pretty much how I felt when I started reading The Hatch I really got into reading poetry for National Poetry month. So I wanted to keep the ball rolling and try some horror poetry. This is when the very dark and devilish little book landed on my kindle.

Summary: Darkly devilish poems and short stories.

What I liked: There aren’t many “horror” poets these days. Not sure I can class this as horror but it was a dark read. My favorites where: The Wake, The Fly, Self Defense and Northwest Passage. Fletcher has a way with prose that makes you invested in what he is writing. The cover art even on the digital copy was beautiful and detailed.

What I didn’t like: There wasn’t much about this book of prose that I didn’t like.

Star Rating: 4 Stars

My thoughts: I am hoping to read more from Fletcher in the future. The Hatch was something different to what I normally read and was a good palette cleanser.

A Big Thank you to Netgalley and Brooklyn Arts Press for an advanced review copy for my honest review.
