"Much more soon. For now:
4.5 bumped up

I got nothing at all done today except for finishing this book, and I don't care. The dogs got fed, got their meds and their swim, but beyond that, my entire day was this book.

Trust me, what's in this book is..." Read more of this review »

“Those who turn the instruments of science upon Nature will always be in danger of seeing more than they looked for. There is such a disaster as that of knowing too much, and at some time or another it may overtake each of us.”
E.G. Swain, The Stoneground Ghost Tales

Matthew M. Bartlett
“Among the most ghastly sounds a man can hear is the sound of a voice in what he thought was an empty house.”
Matthew M. Bartlett, Gateways to Abomination

Arthur Machen
“The arts, then, are man’s difference, that which makes him to be what he is; and when he speaks through them he is using the utterance which is proper to him, as man. For, if we once set aside the “does it pay” nonsense, which is evidently nonsense and pestilent nonsense at that, we come clearly and freely to the truth that man is concerned with beauty, and with the ecstasy or rapture that proceeds from the creation of beauty and from the contemplation of it.”
Arthur Machen, The Autobiography Of Arthur Machen

T.E. Grau
“Confidence pumped to the level of giving zero fucks was portable, at least in theory.”
T.E. Grau, They Don't Come Home Anymore

Algernon Blackwood
“That horror which stalks in the stillness of the noonday, when the glare of an artificial sunshine lights up the motionless trees, moved all about her. In front and behind she was aware of it. Beyond this stealthy silence, just within the edge of it, the things of another world were passing. But she could not know them. Her husband knew them, knew their beauty and their awe, yes, but for her they were out of reach. She might not share with him the very least of them. It seemed that behind and through the glare of this wintry noonday in the heart of the woods there brooded another universe of life and passion, for her all unexpressed. The silence veiled it, the stillness hid it; but he moved with it all and understood. His love interpreted it.”
Algernon Blackwood, The Man Whom the Trees Loved
