The paper over boards front panel has a geometric art deco design in dark gray, green and blue with ivory for an accent. From 1981 through 2001, Koontz used 'dark' poetry quotes, from a supposed mysterious book of this name as epigraphs at the beginnings - and occasionally at part divisions - of many of his books. It snowballed on him and began to take over a large part of his and his assistants' lives, due to all the requests from fans for information about or a copy of the book. In this now-realized book, Koontz starts with 8 tickle-your-funny-bone chapters of musings on the why's and wherefor's of how The Book Of Counted Sorrows came to be imagined, then published, and how the publication will hopefully make his life halfway sane again. Actually, the poems 'are' quite good, though they are 'not' funny, nor intended to be. ; 9-1/4" x 6-1/8"; 71 pages
