Today’s prompt is for favorite horror reads; that not being much of my thing (outside, perhaps, the gothic classics and anything more edifying or funny rather than scary), I think I’m going to leave that prompt to Char, Bark’s Books (aka Bark at the Ghouls), and the site’s other horror fans.  Instead, I’m going to […]

Rare Books, but have no reason to be in there specifically. pic.twitter.com/txBpSEHIOL — Kirsty Rolfe (@avoiding_bears) May 12, 2018   Extremely pure of heart.
