    Richard Wentworth — whose grim, anti-crime crusades as the Spider have made him world-famous — was the first objective in the Poison Master’s murder campaign. His best friend, Kirkpatrick, lay in a death-like stupor. His beloved, Nita van Sloan, was stricken with the horrible living death! And at the same time, countless thousands were felled by the same fatal venom... Caught in the crossfire between the Law and the Underworld, the Spider must battle the blind apathy of a nation ensnared in a subtle death-trap — must overcome the despair in his own brave heart...! Laboratory of the Damned is torn from the pages of the July, 1936 issue of The Spider Magazine.

    “Poems . . . like folk tales told by a child with an impishly surrealistic streak” from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The World Doesn’t End (Library Journal). In this volume, “Simic writes so simply that his words fall like drops of water, but they ripple outward to evoke an ominous and numinous world” (The Washington Post Book World). He fills the wee hours of his poetry with angels and pigs, riddles and cemeteries. With empty offices and dolls that smile. With the sound of bare feet upstairs and a single kiss before the shadows converge. His is a rich, haunted world of East European memory and American present—a world of his own creation, one always full of luminous surprise. “The poems . . . come from a vision of the world that, once experienced, prevents us from ever dozing again, that prevents us, for that matter, from feeling confidently awake.” —Los Angeles Times “One of the most original poets writing today, Simic has a gift for startling juxtapositions . . . Homely images, in Simic’s hands, take on an eerie combination of the marvelous and the absurd . . . There are few poets writing today whose sense of wonder is so palpable.” —Library JournalPraise for Charles Simic “Few contemporary poets have been as influential—or as inimitable—as Charles Simic.” —The New York Times Book Review “He has infused American poetry with the freshest and most original style and imagery since e.e. cummings.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch “His poems are crowded with uncanny presence, which he challenges with flirtatious directness.” —The New Yorker

    Does the Christian Bible seem somehow remote, inaccessible, or difficult to penetrate? This unusual book offers a way in to the Bible which has probably never been attempted before...
    
     
    It introduces the first six books of the Bible through a combination of poetry, conversation and commentary. The poems are written in a variety of styles, from sonnet to Haiku, reflecting the variety of writing in the Bible, and simply to enjoy the art of poetry as one of God’s gifts to humankind.
    
     
    Sometimes humorous, often challenging, and always accessible, this is a book for anyone who doesn’t know where to start with the Old Testament.
