Why read it?

1 author picked Can You Sign My Tentacle? as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This book of poems is a truly unexpected combination of current pop culture, social commentary, and cosmic horror--and a hugely enjoyable read.

How can we trust what we will get in return? How do our personal histories inform how we will respond to the void when it comes knocking? A lively, thoughtful read.  

From Premee's list on modern cosmic horror.
