The Fuel of Tender Years

Cover art for The Fuel of Tender Years created by Rodger Gerberding

The Fuel of Tender Years is a collection of macabre poetry written by Joey Froehlich. It is illustrated by Rodger Gerberding and the forward is written by Stephen King.

After Froehlich corresponded with King for a time, King told Froehlich that he should do a collection of his poetry. He told him that if he did, he would write a forward for him. A couple years later, in 1996, Froehlich published The Fuel of Tender Years as a chapbook through Gothic Press. As promised, King followed through and wrote the forward.
