by Michael H. Hanson
Visions of terror, abandonment, and rejection…nightmares populated by archetypes of death, mystery, and the supernatural. Join Michael on an eerie bus ride of the soul and brace yourself for each strange and macabre stop. When The Night Owl Screams offers up 105 hair-raising poems that worm their way through the fever dreams of your subconscious.
Remember…you were warned.
“This book is like a magical ticket to visit everything that has been, that touched and surrounded us, from yesterday’s vanilla smell to that of chopped alien almonds of lost days, stuck inside us. This is the secret of Michael’s book: his intimately varnished poems carry us back and forth in time and space…”

Michael H. Hanson is the Creator of the Sha’Daa shared-world, horror/fantasy anthology series currently consisting of Sha’Daa: Tales of The Apocalypse, Sha’Daa: Last Call, Sha’Daa: Pawns, Sha’Daa: Facets, and the soon to premiere Sha’Daa: Inked all published by Moondream Press (an imprint of Copper Dog Publishing LLC).

In the upcoming year Michael will not only be overseeing the writing of the new Sha’Daa anthology Sha’Daa: Inked, but he is also overseeing the writing of the shared-world novel Not To Yield, a science fiction tale inspired by The Odyssey.
Michael is the Founder of the international writers club, The Fictioneers, a non-profit organization created in 2007 to encourage the writing of sci fi, fantasy, and horror, and the creative interaction of fledgling writers with more experienced professionals. The Fictioneers is loosely modeled after those fun children’s clubs of mid-20th Century radio fame (Captain Midnight, Little Orphan Annie, etc.).
