https://www.facebook.com/100027203064168/videos/545765156340248/ On Sunday, March 7, a friend of mine, Tim Stamps, whom I have known since college way back in the dark ages of the 70's, sent me this link to a truly dark video.

Creepy Cabin in the Woods

As you may know, I live in house in the remote backwoods of Arkansas on what was once a civil war battlefield. A few thousand probably died here and my house is probably very near where the Union commanding officer stood while directing the fight, which was only a hundred yards or so away.

Incredible Documentary of Lizard and Snakes

I enjoy her book reviews and will start posting them here occasionally. I am considering having book reviews by myself or others at 8:00 … Continue reading Book Review by Ligeia Resurrected: The Dark and the Disturbed by Guy de Maupassant

The Saturday Night Special: The Animated “Dagon” by H.P. Lovecraft

I am trying something different for this Saturday, something that I hope will turn out to be quite enjoyable. I linked this post to an animated version of Lovecraft's "Dagon" on YouTube. I watch YouTube a lot and they have scads of interesting videos. If this works out, I will do this more often. Let … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: The Animated “Dagon” by H.P. Lovecraft
