An informal assembly of things relating to Horror and the Gothic. Horror and Gothic components reside in many places, as the boundaries dividing one category from another are incredibly porous. This blog meanders through the traces of Horror and the Gothic as found anywhere in Art, Culture, History and Nature.

Enjoy. If you have questions, feel free to ask. Let's have a conversation.

My wife and I went with my mother to the doctor yesterday. My mom is currently undergoing radiation treatment, for the second time, for breast cancer that has now moved to her liver, lungs, bones, and brain. The nurse who helped my mom had a pin that said, “I radiate happiness.” My wife’s response to that pin: “Maybe because you’re not the one with cancer.”

Found this little guy next to the front window.

My apartment complex had tons of bats last year, who all lived in the roof. The complex sealed the roof to get rid of the bats, but it happily hasn’t completely worked. There are fewer bats around and I don’t know where they’re staying—maybe still in the roof somewhere. In any case, seeing this guy was a good time. Bats are important and the various populations in America aren’t doing all that well these days. We would be well served to be nice to bats.

Whoever said that light was life
and darkness nothing? For some
of us, the mythologies
are different.
Margaret Atwood, “My Life As A Bat,” from Sudden. (via minevras)
