From Best Selling and Bram Stoker Award Winning Author Joe McKinney:
"So much of the poetry in this book concerns itself with death, and yet, when you consider the sum of its parts, Missives in Red is very much a book about life. Michael Randolph uses his book, a massive offering that covers a wide spectrum of voices, to shine his light on the dark corners of our lives - and yes, on our follies too. There is pain here, and love; fear, and bittersweet joy; tears, and even laughter. Michael Randolph is a deeply insightful poet to watch." -Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Savage Dead and Dead City
