Taking Pen in Hand
As the year draws to a close, let’s look back at some of 2018’s most popular posts:
I think that Embalmed Alive and Pickled to Death topped the squeam-factor list, followed by Cremated Alive.
Other popular posts were Ashes a la carte, The Twelve Deaths of Christmas, The Haunted Cab, Midnight Grange and Bogey Park, The Black Ghost, parts 1 and 2, and in the realm of the Gentry, The Elf-Shot Spaniel, Fairy Crowns of Scandinavia, and Harold the Goblin Boss.
Just a word to say that I’m taking the month of January off. I have lots of planning and outlining to do for several new projects. Talk amongst yourselves and dip into the archives where there are over 800 posts on all kinds of Fortean subjects, which I hope will educate, elevate, and amuse until I’m back.
I wish you all the happiest of New Years!
