Herschell Goes to Heaven (New Harley Poe Song)
I had written and illustrated this story years ago and have been trying to get it published in the form of a baby book ever since, but I guess it just isn't meant to be. Rue Morgue magazine published a piece on me back in issue #54 and featured a few of its pages alongside the article, and I self published and pressed 200 black and white versions about two years ago. Still, I don't feel many people have seen it, and at the time I finished it I was very proud, so it's a bit disappointing. I guess it's okay that it never got picked up by a publishing company. It's my first attempt at an illustrated story in the form of a children's book. I'll do a better job and write a longer story next time. I've put music to the poem and recorded it in the studio of my buddy and band mate Gregg Manfredi. So here you go. Please enjoy.
