Work of this caliber is rare; brutal honesty that touches emotions that have not been felt since childhood, verse that speaks to something unknown and real. Beorh calls upon the mystique of Ireland and reveals stories that are buried in the collective subconscious, an echo of horror and reality we hide from, a serpent ancient and terrible. James Joyce wrote one of the greatest works of art the world has seen, but most of its relevance is rooted in Irish lore and culture. Edgar Allan Poe is often considered the father of the Horror genre, and his poetry resonates through history. If Joyce and Poe walked into a pub and wrote a book of poetry together, it would resemble the work of Scath Beorh. Make no mistake: GOLGOTHA & DARK SAYINGS OF OLD is the compilation of literary horror poetry that academia and the genre have been waiting for. Scáth Beorh's work is manifestation of a painter's stroke, a pianist tapping away at a keyboard, a photographer adjusting an aperture. Art's relativity is often based in its generational placement, a reflection of a culture's norms, an artifact of lives. Beorh's poetry is transcendent.

About the Author
Scáth Beorh tells stories permeated with themes of violence, brutality, anguish, punishment, magical realism, and blurred lines between this and the afterlife. Sometimes veiled and at times more overt sarcasm about Christian values and moral inconsistencies underline an ingenious design behind the entertaining tales. The quality of the writing and storytelling indicates an extremely well-informed and competent storyteller.
