Context for Black Paradox In Japan, suicide has always been an act linked to the historical, social and cultural tradition of the country. It was part of the code of the ancient samurai, who were willing to give their lives by calling seppuku, a sign of their fervent courage and will to preserve their honor and that of their family above all else.

Fragments of Horror by Junji Ito
From time to time there appears a person endowed with an intellect far above the average, someone capable of seeing things that normal man can barely observe. I am not referring to a superior being from an evolutionary point of view, but to that individual endowed with a special gift, to his or her ability to cross borders with his or her thinking.
Bram Stoker, "Dracula"
Perhaps if Abraham (Bram) Stoker (1847–1912) had not suffered from an illness that forced him to bed until the age of eight, the themes of endless sleep and resurrection from the world of the dead would not have inflamed his imagination so much. The miraculous healing, the physical recovery of which he was the protagonist, capable of transforming an infirm into an athlete, has much in common with the myth of the vampire who, through blood, rejuvenates, regenerates his tissues, inverts the course of nature.
William Hope Hodgson
William Hope Hodgson is a writer who has been compared to Edgar Allen Poe, although I would veer away from that description for a lot of his stories. I have once more picked up on “The House On The Borderland” which is, in my opinion (and that of a lot of other people) a masterpiece of the unnatural supernatural in the realms of Clark Ashton-Smith, Arthur Machen and HP Lovecraft.

Book Review: "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King
For those of you who remember the movie, the miniseries or the subculture that spun off from this I would like to say that if you have done all of this but not read the book then you will definitely enjoy it so go and do so. If you have and you’re like me who got the ever-living daylights scared out of them by the novel more than the series or the film then you have come to the right place. Stephen King’s “Salem’s Lot” is a book that grows with age. I read it for the very first time when I was just about turning twelve and now, I’m re-reading it thinking - how is this still making me feel uncomfortable almost a decade and a half later? There are many scenes in this book that are not wholeheartedly ‘scary’ but there are many scenes where I think I felt far more uncomfortable than if I just read a straight up horror and gore novel. I remember as a pre-teen that I read a couple of those uncomfortable scenes and just started to cry. Not cry out loud, but tears would run down my face and my muscles would tense up and really, only a few authors can do that to me. One of them is Stephen King.
The Blue Castle Hag
The Blue Castle under the water. In the castle lived a mean old hag.Every night she would look through one of the windows. This happened during the night.Passer bys can see her pointing her finger and luring many into the castle . They can hear her say "Come here to my humble abode and have some tea and crumpets". Noone could refuse tea and crumpets. Everyone that passed by never came out of the castle. One by one they have been disappearing. Never to be seen or heard from again. People can see the castle from afar.The above water place looks like a huge see through swimming pool above the ground. The Blue castle looks quite creepy in the middle of the night. Complete with special glow in the dark shadows and spooky looking spiked tiny creatures. These creatures are scattered all around the castle. They only seem to come out at night. The daylight seems to scare them the most. Once the crack of dawn comes. The creatures go back into hiding.There are openings everywhere close to the castle. Noone can see them . Unless they look closely . The creatures seem to keep themselves around to maintain safety for a specific time. Every year around Halloween alot of changes takes place. The hag gives everyone who visits one trick and one treat. Never to be seen or heard from again. Maybe, the hags top choice is for population control.One may want to know the disappearances of all these people in a well populated area. One my have to ask the mean old hag. Ask the mean old hag,if you dare. One day you may disappear yourself.Never knowing the truth about the little old hag and the Blue castle . Night after night strange things happen all around the castle. One can hear water trickling down a window pane. Drip by drip a small puddle appears. On the ground one can see an opening through the puddle. The many drops makes the opening bigger and stronger.I heard many of these openings lead to different rooms throughout the world. Where these drops of drips lead. Noone knows where they all lead .To follow the drops of drips.One must wait for a small puddle to appear. Wait for a clear strong opening. Then leap forward and jump in. Jumping in one of the puddles may lead you to the mean old hag.After you arrive in front of the hag ask her, if you dare.Many who have come into contact with her seem to have disapppeared one by one. Darkness sets in around the castle. A dark clo headed for the castle . Thunder can be heard from afar.Rain clouds form and rain droplets start a huge puddle.A purple lightning strike. Lit up part the pale blue sky.Huge puddles in different places. One can jump in any puddle and dont know where it leads.Sometimes , all it takes is leaping into the ,amotivation to do .One must remember looking into dark places.In one of the puddle may lead you to the blue castle hag.Can =The Blue cas=tle hag may turn up.Noone knows the exact puddle one can see the Blue castle hag appear in.Everytime one visited the Blue castle hag one disappeared. Never to be seen or heard from again.Be careful after you come across a blue castle hag. Stay away from the Blue castle hag.Everyone that has been contact with her disappears.Disppearing , never to be seen or heard from again . From this moment on and until the next. Noone ever dared to go near the hag again .

20 Books That Terrified Me
Halloween is my favourite season not just because everything is scary and dark, but also because of the flavours. These include: ginger, pumpkin, dark chocolate, almond, apple and so many more. They are such delicious flavours and you can eat them warm. But in reality, everything is still scary and dark.
Book Review: Stitched Lips: An Anthology of Horror from Silenced Voices
Tired of the same old thing? So much of what we read is homogenous. Far too often, the people whose voices we need to hear most are silenced by the louder ones of the majority. STITCHED LIPS pushes back on that. Within these pages, you'll find eleven staggeringly original and well-crafted horror stories, from amazing authors who are People of Color, LGBTQ+ folks, and writers who identify as women. All profits from this anthology will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization whose goal is the advancement of human rights for all people.
