M. J. Patrick M. J. Patrick's blog:

I answered the office phone. My husband asked, “Have you heard?”


“Heard what?” My mind immediately jumped to last night’s terrible event in Las Vegas. Did we know someone who had been killed or hurt at the country concert?


“Tom Petty died.”


His words shocked me. The refrain ‘the day the music died’...

The attic used to be a great comfort to me. It was a place where I spent many of my happier days, back when Marie and little Edward were still alive.

Thomas Wrightson Thomas Wrightson's blog:
In this series of blog posts, the first in some time due to a variety of factors, I've decided to focus on the three major ways people use genres in general; playing them straight, satirising them, and deconstructing them.

October is the month for all things horror, but since that is generally most (not all) of what I read, I like to focus on one specific sub-genre. This time around it’s vampires. I read Dracula last year. I recently finished, and reviewed, Twilight...
