Autumn Cozy on YouTube: Pub Ambience

I found this tonight while looking for something to play in the background while working on Shadows and Stars. This is exactly the kind of place where I love to write, usually with some coffee or tea in a cheap spiral notebook and a simple, but quality pen. I have tried writing while drinking and it … Continue reading Autumn Cozy on YouTube: Pub Ambience

Lovecraft’s Lack of Publicity in His Time

It was a little after half-past nine when the man fell overboard. The mail steamer was hurrying through the Red Sea in the hope of making up the time which the currents of the Indian Ocean had stolen. The night was clear, though the moon was hidden behind clouds. The warm air was laden with … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: “Man Overboard” by Winston Churchill (1898)

A silent, churlish recluse, in his life he had known no … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: “The Fearsome Touch of Death” by Robert E. Howard (1930)
