Horror writer David Nickle is a master of the creepy — the reveal at the end of the horror story that lodges in your brain and revisits you in goosepimply moments of fear. I stole the idea of ambulatory thumbs in Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town from one of his short stories (“The…
Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities is a new, huge, beautiful look at his notebooks, scrapbooks and sketches. Flavorwire has a bunch of excerpts from the book that are quite fetching and wonderfully gruesome. Some of my favorites are below.
The Library of Congress’s website hosts a high-resolution scan of a rare edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” illustrated by Gustave Doré. The title-page is at page 11, the list of illustrations is on page 14.
The illustrations are amazing, like no other illustrated Poe I’ve seen. I’ve collected my favorites above, and there are a lot of them — honestly, it was impossible to choose.
Daniel Kraus’s 2013 horror novel Scowler was pure nightmare fuel, a book that literally made me shriek aloud on the bus one afternoon. Now, the novel has been released as an audiobook by Random House audio, read by Kirby Heywood.
The unabridged audiobook is available as a DRM-free MP3…

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons
One of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen.
And if you read KSLs post on facebook about this, it’s full of people saying she did this as a “Publicity Stunt”. It’s really pissing me off that this woman is constantly threatened, and yet people keep assuming she’s just sock puppetting it up. It’s really sad we live in a world that will immediately try to discredit a woman who is threatened with horrendous violence, rather than attempting to protect her and others like her.
If this were just one woman, maybe that argument would work. I am a “Gamer Girl” and have been for most of my life. I have read stories from many women who work in the industry who face harassment and sexism. It’s toxic and largely unpunished in gamer culture.
Starting in the late 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of cinemas interiors and drive-ins with the aim of encapsulate the whole lenght of a movie in a single shot. He left the camera shutters open throughout the running of a movie and the glowing screen of the cinemas was left as a trace on each take. A somehow uncanny light resonates in the dark cinema halls. At a further glance, this central light ethereally underlines the rich architectural details of the theater interiors. You might want to confront Sugimoto’s work with Michael Wesely’s, a photographer that uses to take photographs featuringi 3 years long exposures: read “The passing of time“, (on Socks).
