His new poetry book entitled “Chanting Demons” will be available mid 2016 from Rainy Day Reads Publishing. -The demons, we become. The abominations, we fear. The devils, we dare to follow. Hidden, consumed and tucked away in the darkest recesses of our hearts, we run from. Days become night, the night refuses to end. Humans become demons, we refuse to lay down our madness and die. Begging legacies to live on, immortalized in rock, soil and flesh. The land remembers, minds refuse to forget. We pass it on, in scripts, words, tongues spoken across continents and ages. We deny, the global destruction, ruthless torment and the primal savagery of our kind. In blood, in tears, we remember, the demons we become.

“Resurgius” by E.M. Schorb (Cover art by Trevor Richardson) Serge Bering-Strait, a young poet who lives with his activist mother and four aunties in a Greenwich Village brownstone, h…as just gone to work as copywriter for “Women’s Omnibus” magazine. Serge would much rather have remained up in his garret room writing poetry, but his mother, Dagmar, and his Auntie Janet have insisted that it’s high time he got out into the world—it isn’t natural to be a recluse at twenty-three—his Auntie Janet, in fact, has secured the job for Serge by calling in a favor from the editor at “Women’s Omnibus,” Bettina Battle. Ms. Battle, the “Battle of Britain,” as she is often referred to by her underlings, hails from “Swinging London”—the magazine as well as the city. In this New York work-a-day situation of the swinging Sixties, Serge finds himself the object of unwanted sexual advances from his lady boss editor. It is all too upsetting to this young, shy, poet. He has spent his whole life under the thumbs of five very tough, aggressive women and now the additional pressure from Editor Battle, out to deflower him, brings him to a crossroads.
What people are already saying about “Resurgius”
“Resurgius is a quietly hilarious read which, unique though it is, strikes me as belonging to the very league as the comic gems of Evelyn Waugh and Nathaniel West. It abounds in delectable tongue-in-cheek wit. Your price of admission will be richly repaid by the character of Bettina Battle, a woman with all the subtlety of a battering ram, in hot pursuit of sexual satisfaction from Serge, the dorky antihero. Among its other distinctions, Resurgius is a masterpiece of style, so skillfully written that it would be hard to change a word without a worsening. This comes as no surprise; Schorb for a long while has stood out among our finer poets, with tremendous assets of imagination, powers of invention, and the ability to polish his words to a sheen. This is a book to give to discerning friends, to cherish on a permanent shelf, and to wolf down immediately, being regaled.”
