Secret Samhain (like Secret Santa, only for Halloween)

What This one’s really simple. Enter your address below and on October 20th, I’ll randomly swap your address with another entrant for you to send each other a Halloween or horror-themed gift of at least a $20 value. Like most of these things that I run, it’s definitely for the purpose of fun above all

#SpookyStoryChain No. 1: “Sara’s Best Friend”

“Oh fuck, no, shit, shit…” Sara mumbled to herself, more out of concern for her own safety than for that of the dog she’d just ran over. To be fair, this wasn’t a part of the city you’d want to get out of your car in. A man approached offering help, startling her, and she

Ask for Donations, or Die Trying? $♥️

I have always had super-duper mixed feelings about donations, and have discussed that in the past here on HL. I don’t have an issue with donations, in and of themselves; I’ve happily made donations; I’ve happily accepted donations. It’s the asking or being asked part that gives me a bit of an icky feeling.

The Oscars: Women and Black People and Horror Movies, Oh My!

The Oscars have come under a lot of fire in recent years for their lack of diversity. Last week’s show appears to be the most diverse award show held yet. This of course is nothing new that I’m reporting here, as there’s been no shortage of coverage of these issues. I’m seeing plenty of coverage
