Welcome! I write fantasy, horror, and a blog about monsters. Check it out.
A blog about monster myths. Posts every full moon.
Check out my latest projects and publications.
Updates and exciting things (outside of monsters).

On Halloween (or Samhain), the veil between this world and the next lifts, and the dead (and worse) walk. Rather than exploring a specific monster, let’s explore lots of them at once by poking at that boundary and what’s on the other side.
Bride ghost legends are so common (and so irritating in their implications) that I have ignored them on this blog so far. But now, I figured that it was about time that I gave one a shot.
