“To say that Twin Peaks was an inspiration for me personally is an understatement. It was a creative right of passage. A vision not just of an artist at the height of his craft, but of a time and place, a version of American life and love and suffering that could never be real, yet somehow was more real than anything I’d ever seen. 

The contributors to this anthology have also experienced this right of passage. They have loved, as I have loved, an impossible story of humanity and inhumanity, of a cosmic malevolence subverting every mundane aspect of domestic life, and of the devout few who struggle to understand and combat the darkest impulses and machinations of the universe. They have rendered this love, this fascination and passion here into verse. 

To quote Agent Cooper, “Every day, once a day, give yourself a present.” Today let it be this book. “
