Hello, my Freaky Darlings!
The weather seems to be changing down here in the southern hemisphere, and there’s less of a chill in the air. It’s been a long, cold winter, and I can’t wait for it to be over. Hopefully, the warmer weather will bring a sense of renewal and a slightly brighter outlook on life and the future.
Hey, a girl can dream about a brighter future for all. Right?
Anyway … This week’s video is about a creepy Irish mythical creature known as The Dullahan.
And yes, this is the myth that all the headless horseman stories are based on.
So … creepy or not?
I would also like to introduce you to Troy Young’s The Other. Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of the Cthulhu mythos?
It started as a typical day in a sleepy little coastal village. But little did they know everything was about to change forever.
Corporal Joe Mills of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrives at Gallou Cove, certain the reported ‘sea monster’ washed ashore would be nothing. What he found there on the beach chilled him to the core.
Dr. Adele Kramer, a marine biologist, shows up to categorize the find. The creature defies any known life found on Earth. At least, nothing originating on the planet.
So begins their introduction to ‘The Other’, the secret world of cosmic horrors plaguing humanity since before the dawn of time. They soon find themselves drawn into a plot many millennia-old to prevent the end of all existence in the universe. Can they survive the Crawling Chaos and prevent He Who Lies Dreaming from awakening?
This book is the first in a trilogy, containing six of eighteen linked novelettes and novellas meant to be read in order and set in H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.
Then I’ve also got some Vampires and Witches for you in this Bloody July sale. All books are $2.99 or less.
That’s it for this week. Happy reading and thanks for being a Freaky Darling!
