I worked a 16 hour shift today and when I came home this book was waiting for me on the top of my desk. It was a very good surprise. I wanted to read this book since I first heard of it. A nice late Christmas present.

Product details:
Title: The Lords and the New Creatures: poems
Author: Jim Morrison
Number of pages: 144
Publish: October 15th 1971 by Touchstone (first published 1969)

Overview (via Goodreads):
Intense, erotic, and enigmatic, Jim Morrison's persona is as riveting now as the lead singer/composer "Lizard King" was during The Doors' peak in the late sixties. His fast life and mysterious death remain controversial more than twenty years later.
The Lords and the New Creatures, Morrison's first published volume of poetry, is an uninhibited exploration of society's dark side -- drugs, sex, fame, and death -- captured in sensual, seething images. Here, Morrison gives a revealing glimpse at an era and at the man whose songs and savage performances have left their indelible impression on our culture.
