AN ILKESTON poet’s latest collection of dark and eerie poetry has been aptly released in time for Halloween on Monday.

Steven Pape’s Art of Darkness features ‘dark’ poets from around the world, setting in verse their grim and morbid thoughts.

Steven said: “The anthology has some varied poems and different styles from some of the best dark poets around today.”

The book is available from Blurb.com, from Ilson Ink at the bottom of Bath Street, or from Steven himself and is priced £6.

It will also be available to load from local libraries from next month.
