October descends on us once again, and my site rises from its shallow grave to welcome the turning of the seasons. Why break such a fun tradition! Here we have the fourth annual October Edition of this site (you may need to disembowel your cache). I’ve traded in the past bloodbath for a bit of dust and absinthe. This year’s costume is loosely inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe (a dear favorite); the idea being an arcane tome printed many years ago. There should be a rash of posts this month with October and Halloween goodies to
ring stab in the best month, season, and holiday the year has to offer. For now, I welcome you to exhume the graves of Octobers past. I’ll leave you with a few Poe-related links to darken your day: short stories and poems, further prose, The Ingram-Poe Collection, and the Poe Museum in Richmond, VA (which I would love to visit someday). Enjoy!
