“How simple things had been, once upon a time. In the era when children still played with Raggedy Ann, life had been so uncomplicated. Or at least it seemed that way. Though he knew, of course, that the past had its share of pain and ugliness.”

Book Review: "Doomed Romances" ed. by Joanne Ella Parsons
Full Title: Doomed Romances: Strange Tales of Uncanny Love edited by Joanne Ella Parsons “For some nights I slept profoundly; but still every morning I felt the same lassitude, and a languor weighed upon me all day. I felt myself a changed girl. A strange melancholy was stealing over me, a melancholy that I would not have interrupted. Dim thoughts of death began to open, and an idea that I was slowly sinking took gentle, and, somehow, not unwelcome possession of me. If it was sad, the tone of mind which this induced was also sweet. Whatever it might be, my soul acquiesced in it.” Carmilla by J Sheridan Le Fanu

Full Title: The Whisperers and Other Stories: A Life in the Supernatural by Algernon Blackwood edited by Mike Ashley And the darkness puzzled him. He remembered the absence of accustomed windows, but it was only when the candle-light brought close the face of his watch, with two o’clock upon it, that he heard the sound of confused whispering in the corners of the room, and realised with a little twinge of fear that those who whispered had just been standing beside his very bed. The room was full.

We shall lie here together, for ever and ever, joined so fast that even God can't put us asunder. We shall be one flesh and one spirit, one sin repeated for ever, and ever; spirit loathing flesh, flesh loathing spirit; you and I loathing each other.'
Book Review: "Haunters at the Hearth" ed. by Tanya Kirk
Full Title: Haunters at the Hearth: Eerie Tales for Christmas Nights edited by Tanya Kirk He moved his head slowly, and looked me in the face, without speaking a word. I shall never forget that look while I live. I turned cold at heart under it. I turn cold at heart even now when I recall it. His eyes glowed with a fiery unnatural lustre. His face was livid as the face of a corpse. His bloodless lips were drawn back as if in the agony of death, and showed the gleaming teeth between. The Phantom Coach by Amelia B Edwards
Morality, Power and Politics in "Macbeth" by W. Shakespeare
There exists a theatrical production of such immense power that an ancient belief insists that its name should never be spoken within the confines of a theater. This play commences with the dark arts of witchcraft and concludes with a gruesome decapitation. It is a play that encompasses enigmatic puzzles, prophetic visions, and a multitude of savage killings. This particular play, penned by the renowned William Shakespeare, is commonly known as the "Scottish Play" or the "Tragedy of Macbeth." It was initially showcased at the esteemed Globe Theater in London in the year 1606. "Macbeth" stands as Shakespeare's briefest tragedy, yet it is brimming with intense action. Across five acts, the playwright narrates the tale of a Scottish nobleman who seizes the throne, unleashes a reign of terror, and ultimately meets a gory demise.
Book Review: "The Mammoth Book of Folk Horror" ed. by Stephen Jones
...The true evil has nothing to do with social life or social laws, or if it has, only incidentally and accidentally. It is a lonely passion of the soul — or a passion of the lonely soul — whichever you like. If, by chance, we understand it, and grasp its full significance, then, indeed, it will fill us with horror and with awe. But this emotion is widely distinguished from the fear and the disgust with which we regard the ordinary criminal, since this latter is largely or entirely founded on the regard which we have for our own skins or purses. We hate a murder, because we know that we should hate to be murdered, or to have any one that we like murdered. The White People by Arthur Machen

Book Review: "A Walk in a Darker Wood" ed. by Duane Pesice et al.
Do I have to explain myself? It's a folk horror anthology filled with stories that for some reason, I have never even heard of. Some of these stories are seriously good and, to top it all off, there are also poems that sound like chants and incantations in the midst of these narratives. Folk horror is my favourite sub-genre of all time and to find that there are litters and litters of anthologies featuring the most wickedly written stories all over the place, I can honestly say that I really hope I don't run out of things to read because you best be sure I will be reading them all. I am going to however, ignore the fact that there's some weird art within this book because apart from Damnable Tales, I don't think any other book can really hypnotise me with its artwork and I won't criticise it in comparison to something as god-tier as Damnable Tales. It just isn't fair.
