Juleigh Howard-Hobson’s poem, “When I Start Leaving These By The Tree That Grows In Front of Your House, You Will Wish You Never Met Me” will appear in the horror anthology, Superstition this fall.

Superstition—coming Fall, 2022.

We have cast the stones, made sure the portal horseshoe is nailed with the luck pointing up, mumbled fervent prayers, and made oblations to our gods and patrons of fortune for the success of our upcoming anthology, Superstition. I’m happy to say that our initial rituals have met with success: Don and I have accepted Juleigh Howard-Hobson’s dark poem (or “sonnet spell”), “When I Start Leaving These By The Tree That Grows In Front Of Your House, You Will Wish You Never Met Me.”

I enjoy Juleigh’s longer titles, which she uses for some of her poems. They seem like more than just an introduction but an integrated part of the body of the poem itself. Besides being interesting to me for its own sake, this also allows her to deviate from each line containing ten syllables as she does with this offering.

Juleigh is best known as a poet and her work has appeared in many publications including The Deadlands, Dreams & Nightmares, Eye to the Telescope, Polu Texni, 34 Orchard, Midnight Echo, Noir Nation, and of course The Lost Librarian’s Grave to name just a few. Her latest collection of “sonnet spells” is titled Curses, Black Spells and Hexes and published by Alien Buddha Press.
