Saturday

Poet Matt Betts at Destination Discount Books

As a speculative poet, Betts specializes in science fiction, horror and fantasy. His cast of characters often comprises zombies, ghosts, robots and characters from old TV shows and movies. For example, Van Helsing and Mothra make guest appearances in his latest book. There is also a poem, "Ghost of a Beloved Children's Show Host," which "sort of references a giant purple dinosaur, but not by name," Betts said.
