Things I Like: Longbox of Darkness

By |October 16th, 2018|

There are three things I like quite a bit: comics, horror, and podcasts. So imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered someone combined all three! The Longbox of Darkness is a podcast covering horror comics hosted by Herman Louw. Every episode does a deep dive into a particular horror comic or collection of comics describing the story, the art, and the time the comic [...]

A Trip Through the Woods (100 Word Stories)

By |October 16th, 2018|

There was little left of our party when the fire went out and shadows became only darkness. When the whispers got loud and the laughter faded. The music we played became a drone, an echo bouncing through the oak, the maple and pine; till all was silence. Just quiet. And quiet leads to madness. And madness is too loud to fear. So we ran from [...]

Reckoning Upon God: Frankenstein (Monster Memories)

By |October 14th, 2018|

Frankenstein is one of the few classic monster movies that I did not see on a Saturday afternoon on a UHF channel.  No, this film was played in prime time. It was a special movie-of-the-week. A  re-showing of a classic film on “regular” TV. It was a big deal. I sat with my mother, my brother, a few aunts and uncles and my grandparents [...]

Cover Story: The Chronicles of Amber

By |October 9th, 2018|

We’ve all heard the saying: don’t judge a book by its cover. This is of course meant to be taken metaphorically. It is meant to reinforce the notion that one should not form an opinion on something based on outward appearances, rather you should look deeper to find the true nature of that something. Taken literally it means that a book might have a [...]

All of This is New to You, And New Can Be Scary (The Return of Doctor Who)

By |October 8th, 2018|

The new season (series) of Doctor Who started yesterday and I feel I am required to say something about it. Typically this is not something I do, at least in the terms of a “hot take” or some such thing. I usually like to ruminate on a thing for a week or a month perhaps a year before giving my opinion on that thing. Actually [...]

Fruit Flavored Terror: Monster Memories

By |October 4th, 2018|

As a kid I loved monsters. Not the ones that hid under the bed or lived in the closet obviously - those were terrifying and nightmare inducing if one actually managed to get to sleep - no, the ones I loved were the safe ones. Your Draculas and your Frankensteins* and your Wolf-Mans (Wolf-Men?), your Mummys, etc. You know the safe, cuddly monsters that [...]

Creature Double Feature: My Saturday Monster Time

By |October 2nd, 2018|

Growing up my Saturday afternoons would be spent with creatures, monsters, ghosts, ghouls, murderers and mad scientists. Beginning around one o'clock I would settle down in front of our 17" Sony Trinatron (complete with simulated wood grain plastic sides) with a soda (typically Frank's grape or ginger ale) and a bowl of buttered macaroni noodles (couldn't get enough buttered macaroni for some reason) and I would [...]

All Hallows’ Eve Month is Here! A Month of Classic Horror

By |October 1st, 2018|

October has arrived - the most wonderful time of the year. There is a nip in the air, the leaves are changing and the smell of pumpkin pie surrounds us. It’s time to wear flannel as you walk a corn maze then curl up by a fire as the sun goes down early. A time to eat caramel apples, drink apple cider, and…well anything apple [...]
