Folklore of Secrecy

I wanted to bring in history, facts, and respect. With a quite popular series such as Supernatural among others either televised or written, many folklores, borrowed from various cultures and First Nations are not an exception. However, some forget that sometimes particular creatures are better left undisturbed. … More Folklore of Secrecy

Enter Sandman

Yeah, I know, most of you were singing your way through those lyrics, weren’t you? It’s quite all right, I did the same thing, so don’t feel bad. Today, I am doing a breakdown of the song Enter Sandman by Metallica off their Black Album, released back in 1991. … More Enter Sandman

Bring Me A Dream

I remember hearing about the Sandman as a child; it wasn’t through the Hans Christian Andersen’s story but through The Chordettes version of Mr. Sandman the song. In fact, in almost every rendition that I have had the pleasure to read or hear since I was introduced to the Sandman, every instance has been innocent, good intent, misunderstood, and complex. … More Bring Me A Dream

The Sandman

The summary of the story itself is quite disturbing and worthy of a Stephen King hit! Back then, I am quite sure that the story scared many people. The Sandman was not what we know him to be now. … More The Sandman

Ghostly Origins

Death is something that either fascinates people or leaves them afraid. It is common to see the truth of a person on its death bed.

It is also common to wonder if they’ll come back or go to heaven or the switch as merely turned off. Either way, ghosts are part of our history. … More Ghostly Origins

Zombies Are A Fact

Recently, zombies have been invading our small screen and the theaters. Either from famous shows as The Walking Dead or World War Z.

Sandman, A Poem

There are not many monsters that scares me, however, when it comes to the Sandman I feel quite disturbed.
He comes in your room at night, throws sand into your eyes and makes you believe it’s for good dreams and yet, I used to have night terrors.
To me, growing up, the Sandman was nothing more that a dreadful evil dust merchant. … More Sandman, A Poem

Werewolves in Paranormal Romance

Werewolves have been part of human legends and folklore for many centuries. They have encountered many obstacles throughout their existence in our stories.
From undergoing the horror of the witch trials to being compared to hell creatures, they’ve endured and thrived. However, they finally did find a place where they are loved and desired… the paranormal romance world. … More Werewolves in Paranormal Romance

Vampire Writing

When I was a very young child, I remember watching Sesame Street and my favorite character beside Oscar The Grouch was The Count.
I learned how to count with The Count! I like his appearance, accent which today might be seen as a little offensive. However, I believe my obsession with vampires started from that moment. … More Vampire Writing

46 Welles Street – Haunted or not?

Growing up in central Pennsylvania, I didn’t know too many ghost stories. However, when my mother moved to Wilkes-Barre and I started spending my summers there it all changed.
46 Welles Street in the town of Wilkes-Barre Pa has been a haunted fixture in the community for generations.
I’ve walked past it as a child. The house itself seems normal for the area. It’s greyish asepsis siding and tiny front yard always seemed perfectly normal for that part of town. … More 46 Welles Street – Haunted or not?

Vampires are a fact?

Vampires have been part of our folklore for hundreds of years. The beliefs that a being subsisting on the vital fluids of a human has timelessly been retold numerous times around the world.
To be quite honest, I wonder why it hasn’t been part of an episode of Ancient Aliens! Because when you do a little research it has you thinking if vampires are a fact. … More Vampires are a fact?

Emerald City!

The word emerald comes from an old French word esmeraude which was loosely translated from a variant of Latin smaragdus.  And, apparently, they stole the word from the Ancient Greeks. Basically, it simply means “green gem”, not very inspiring I know. … More Emerald City!

Canadian Monster?

I was doing some research for Gothic Bite Magazine on monsters, when I stumbled upon an article mentioning a Top 10 Canadian Monsters. I had to take a look, although most are strange and rather “drunkard” stories in my opinion, the one that took me by surprise was, the Thetis Lake Monster. … More Canadian Monster?

The Swamp Monster

The legend of the Swamp Monster is not as old as one would expect. When doing research on the monster itself, thinking mostly to be as old as Big Foot, to my surprise the very first sighting of the half humanoid half leafy murky wet abominable monster took place in 1963 when a man and his friend were looking down from a plane on a swamp and discovered more than they anticipated. … More The Swamp Monster
