Welcome back! Today, I’m going to look at another Edgar Allan Poe tale that, for some reason, became quite the Tumblr meme a couple years back, that tale being 1846’s “The Cask Of Amontillado.”
Hello again, friends! Today I’m going to talk about a story that, for some reason, was required reading for two of my high school English classes. And that story is Stephen King’s “Gray Matter,” from the anthology Night Shift.
So strap in folks, because things are about to get pretty spooky. And kinda gross.
You know, I haven’t talked about the Ulster Cycle for a while, so let’s do that now.
Hello again, friends, and welcome to yet another Mythology Monday. Today, we’re going to talk about the Japanese mythical creature, or youkai, known as the tanuki.
Well, folks, last week I said I’d talk to a story written as a response to Le Guin’s “Those Who Walk Away From Omelas,” and that time has now come. Today, I’m going to talk about N. K. Jemisin’s story, “The Ones Who Stay And Fight,” published in the collection How Long ‘Til Black Future Month?
Hello again, friends! It’s Monday, so you know what that means: time to dig out some ancient myths. This week, I’m going to talk about Pygmalion, and how he brought his RealDoll to life.
So, let’s get started!
OK, I know that this is going to actually hit the blog on the 13th, aka the day after Easter. But I’m writing it on Easter, and it’s going up on the Patreon on Easter, so I’m counting it.
Today, we’re going to talk about the origins of the holiday, and how it may actually be older than you think.
