The lovely books
Spent Valentine’s day walking around the snowy streets of Philadelphia while waiting for a table. Popped into the Joseph Fox Bookstore during our travels. This shop was a crowded little affair. I felt like I was in a broom closet, albeit a wonderful broom closet that is filled floor to ceiling with books. I love the Mütter Museum, so I was excited to find a biography on Dr. Mutter, the 19th century surgeon. Picked up some Egyptian mythology for my son.
We almost missed our train back but were in luck, as it was delayed from the snow. There is nothing like a wintery train ride with a good book!

In honor of Women in Horror month, let’s celebrate the pioneers of weird fiction and Gothic horror! Many of these early works are in the public domain and can be read for free. I have provided links when available. Continue reading
Elder Sign End Times Trilogy Book 1: Arkham by Jennifer Stanfield is a young adult fantasy/horror story. The book is 268 pages and was self-published with Smashwords in December, 2014. Three 19-year old survivors cope with life in a post-apocalyptic world. The fabled beast, dread Cthulhu, has risen and the world as we know has ended. A young adult novel set in a Lovecraftian universe is an unusual combination, but the author makes it work. The story was very readable, and I enjoyed it from start to finish.
