The Haunter of the Dark by H.P. Lovecraft

No love for short stories have I. I never have liked them and I'm not sure I ever will, but Lovecraft seems to have them nailed to a T and I can't fault him.

Everything Lovecraftian exists in this story: Diary entries from someone very interested in f

Terry Pratchett is an amazing writer. Of fantasy. I know many people w

Why is summer mist romantic and autumn mist just sad?

“Love is the answer.”

Robert Rankin
“Probably one of those sinister organisations that lurked behind the mask of amusing acronym, such as BUM, for example - the Bermondsey Union of Minstrels. Or WILLY, the Whitechapel Institution for Long-Legged Yodellers. It could be any one of a hundred such evil cabals. With the notable exception of the Meritorious Union For Friendship, Decency, Individualism, Virtue and Educational Resources, who were above reproach.”
Robert Rankin, The Educated Ape and Other Wonders of the Worlds
