Overview

Welcome to the illusory mind of writing enthusiast David W Moore III. In this book of short stories and poetry, David's written world is nothing short of a creative homage to the spirit and traditions that have helped to shape him. Influences of gothic writer Edgar Allen Poe and English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley are intricately woven into such works as Siren Song and Sleep, Perchance to Dream, while other works such as The House flow like a cavalcade of musicians and mourners at a New Orleans funeral--a balanced blend of thoughts mourning death and celebrating life. Wyrd of the Wyrm blows with the powerful trumpets that haunt the psyche and challenge the moral and ethical contentment of consciences, While The World in D minor quietly, but majestically directs an orchestral score of music and wonder intertwined with creation. All in all, I would say his works epitomize the cognitive mélange that makes David W Moore III one of a kind.
