REVIEW: The Unblocked Collection

The Unblocked Collection
Marni Mann

Unblocked is a series of of five episodes which tells the story of Frankie, the daughter of a real estate giant, and her client, the ever sexy Derek Block. I’ve been vocal about my general dislike for erotica – mostly for vocabularic reasons – but alas, this is a Marni Mann book, and you should all know that she is the type of author whose books you pick up even before you know what they are about. Her latest novel, Prisoned, is currently the number one bestseller in erotica suspense on Amazon.

Love Lies Bleeding

by DM Cross

My love lies bleeding, dying on the ground
Where only in heaven we hear without a sound
where only the clouds upon become solid ground
and rest upon the shores of the vast sea of sky
mirrored in conclusion, in the mind of the eye
you can be me, but only I can be I

My love is bleeding, dying on the ground
where only in the sky we hear without noise
where only the clouds on the ground and the rest full become
on the shores with the vast sea of the sky
reflected in conclusion, in the spirit of the eye
can be to you me, but only I then to be I

My love is bleeding, that on earth,
where only in the sky we hear without noise
where only on the banks of the expanded sea of the sky
against-reflected in conclusion become clouds on full earth
and the peace in the sense of the eye dies,
you can me be, but only I can be I

My love finds to purge itself that on the earth,
where those in the sky do not hear us without noise
where those that become the clouds on the shores of the spread sea of the sky
reflected in a conclusion on the full earth
and the rest die in the direction of the eye,
you can be me, but only I can be I

My love finds to purge itself that in the land,
where does that in the heaven not hear us without noise
where done that him becomes itself
clouds in the margins of the sea and stretch of the heaven
reflect in a conclusion in the full land and I rest in the direction of the eye,
I can be me, but alone I can be I

Review by Stephen Hardman

In a recent letters column in Robert Kirkman’s Outcast he pointed out that the comic is now the third longest running series he has created, after The Walking Dead and Invincible. Currently nineteen issues in, it is easy to envisage Outcast reaching the 50 and 100-issue milestones that those other titles have in recent years.
