"One of the top 5 poets of 2005!" ---Preditors & Editors 2005 Readers Poll
"I am an old dog in the literary game, and i have not seen anyone to date with the passion, or the guts to present the brutal truths,and honesty of life like Istre has.It has been said that Istre is just another "Bukowski,rippoff", cashing in like for instance "chi cheng of the deftones"... such is not the case at all.Istre is indeed an individual entity unlike any other writer out there.The fact the he remains mainly "underground is in it's own right phenomenal. I have read Istre"s first book "shocking tales"..that was a great book but Istre's second endeavour is far greater in comparison." ---Henry Weiss
