“… we have bad dreams
because our brain is trying to protect us… If we can figure out a way to beat the imaginary monsters … Then the real monsters don’t seem so scary… That’s why we like reading scary stories.”
Dan Poblocki, The Stone Child

“We ask our brain to stop worrying, stop obsessing, stop dreaming the same scary dreams again and again. But our brain rarely takes requests.”
Dan Poblocki, The Ghost of Graylock

“Every town has its share of secrets. And when whispered by children in the dead of night, some secrets become stories. They percolate and brew and change. Sometimes, under special circumstances, the stories become legends, destined to survive even as the children who share them grow up and move on.”
Dan Poblocki, The Ghost of Graylock

“… we have bad dreams
because our brain is trying to protect us… If we can figure out a way to beat the imaginary monsters … Then the real monsters don’t seem so scary… That’s why we like reading scary stories.”

“We ask our brain to stop worrying, stop obsessing, stop dreaming the same scary dreams again and again. But our brain rarely takes requests.”
Dan Poblocki, The Ghost of Graylock

“Grief is an amputation, but hope is incurable haemophilia: you bleed and bleed and bleed.”
David Mitchell, Slade House
