Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality. – Edgar Allan Poe
It’s time once again for my annual collection of spooky stuff for the Halloween season! If you’ve started reading my blog this year, you may want to look at my last two such columns, “Trick or Treat” and “More Trick or Treat“, and of course my most recent annual thanatopsis, “Even This Shall Pass Away“. Other horror-themed columns of the past year include “Unreal Horrors” and “To the Ground” (sort of), and my stories “Serpentine“, “Left Behind“, “Magna Mater“, “Surprise“, and this month’s “Athena“. I also featured either scary or creepy-fun videos in Links #226, #242, #258, and #275, and here are some spooky links:
- Ghouls in blue.
- (Love)craft beer.
- Unspeakably delicious!
- Yet another clown attack.
- People without eyes still see ghosts.
- Jesse Walker’s Halloween radio show.
- First real-life horror story of the season.
- Like something from an Anne Rice novel.
- “Curses are laws that enforce themselves.”
- A real-life Halloween horror show. And its sequel.
