Thanks for trying to murder me tonight, @VoodooDoughnut: http://t.co/HArcMOkH5v
Here we go, Portland. Powell's and then the Newmark. I need caffeine & an aspirin and I can do this.
@shanesmith30 Oh dude. I think we might share DNA...
.@shanesmith30 In my case, "entourage" means saltines, tea and a book. If hell is other people, then an entourage is the Hell That Loiters.
Where do people find the social wattage to build & maintain an entourage? I thought success meant you earned quiet & solitude.

Join the List!

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Horror of the Heights" (1913)

@ 1:00 PM

Arthur Conan Doyle writing a horror story?! And what's more, it's a big, honking, flying MONSTER story?

Well, yeah. And it works. The creator of Sherlock Holmes is channeling Lovecraft here. But where Lovecraft suggests, Doyle likes to be plausible...but explicit. Gahan Wilson, in his introduction to this story, says you'll think about this on your next transatlantic flight and look up. So many times when I've been on an airplane, and we entered one of those huge-but-enclosed canyons of clouds, I thought of this. Long before I ever read this story. And Doyle brought my suspicions to life. To horrible, bloated life.
