Sometimes all it takes is a push in the right direction...

What is it really that comes after death?

No one has gotten the answer to that question all the way right.

Sure, some have gotten bits of it, but not all of the important details.

Clayton Shaw was a good man, and by all accounts that should have earned him a one way ticket to the Brilliance - save for one final, fatal mistake.

Now, stuck in the After, Clayton, with some guidance, must come to grips with what comes after life.


Afterwords is author, Stephen Bias's debut novel, and our fourth book here at The Henlo Press!

The Dictionary Game is a living thing. An experience. An afternoon at your favorite coffee shop with a fresh brew, an over-sized dictionary, and a need to create something. It was that experience and a game played over 15 years that led to the collection of writing contained in this book. 

Meet Mike Hornyak, author of the Dictionary Game and talented creative with a passion for writing. Mike did not create the idea of The Game, but he has spent years playing and some of the best words he was given have ended up in this collection.

Thirty poems, written over thirty days - "to when it may concern; and other poems" is a collection of work that was cultivated during National Poetry Writing Month. Though each piece stands alone, together they weave a dark fantastical journey through language and madness.
