Maxie Collins Dreams in Wretched Colors A Story of Murder in Poems by John Garland Wells
Maxie Collins Dreams in Wretched Colors, the debut work from John Garland Wells, is at once both a psychedelic horror novella and a poetry collection. Utilizing the singular powers of verse, the book aims to plunge deep into the terrible and whimsical mind of Maxie Collins, the most devious criminal mastermind to never have lived.
From his snow drenched birth to his stepping over to the realm of urban myth, the life of Maxie Collins is laid out in a series of poetic cycles inspired by the color palettes of the killer as he moves through the various decades of his chaotic life.
Blending biting satire with surreal vignettes of murders most foul, Maxie Collins Dreams in Wretched Colors is a bourbon-soaked nightmare unlike any other.
