Consumed, Reduced to Beautiful Grey Ashes

Linda D. Addison

Consumed, Reduced To Beautiful Grey Ashes captures the path between things gone bad and transformation. This volume includes both original pieces and reprints from such sources as Edgar: Digested Verse, Dark Regions, and Pirate Writings. This collection of poetry received the HWA Bram Stoker award in 2001 and includes interior illustrations by Marge Simon, full color cover by Colleen Crary, and an introduction by Charlee Jacob.

"Linda brings a tight focus to small, intimate details which in turn illuminate and echo larger concerns. What I like about her work is that it reads like the observations you might get from a friend, albeit a friend with a gift of language and insight, who's been let into a few more secrets about what's out there in the world than the rest of us have experienced." --Charles De Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science-fiction

"This collection [Consumed, Reduced to Beautiful Grey Ashes] reads like a string of pearls, with images that recur in poem after poem, reminding us of theme in the most subtle manner. The message penetrates and lingers long after the final poem has been consumed." --Jacquline Jones LaMon, & African Voices

"These are poems with roots sunk deep into the darkness and light of the human spirit. With studied control and subtle perception, Linda's poems are luminous wet, whole 'shiny things' that blaze long after the pages are turned." --Sheree Renée Thomas, Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction
