a dash of steam, a squiggle of Cthulhu

Journeying about the islands of the internet, came across “John Holbo” writing about Ernst Haeckel’s early Christmas card designs and the Victorians’ affection for the distinctly Cthulhu’ic art, along with a delightful and squeamish rendering of The Night Before Christmas. If you’re so inclined, scroll down and give it a read.

Bright sunlight and cold makes the air sparkle–can’t say the same for A Haunting of Roses this morning, but this time of year splinters my focus–not much of an excuse, that’s the case most of the year, but especially during December, coming off of NaNo, needing to think about gifts and gatherings, getting ready for the advent of another new year, and still trying to write, ah well, it’s a beautiful day and the words always come sooner or later.

One thought on “a dash of steam, a squiggle of Cthulhu

  1. Great site you have here. I must reward you with a quote I came across yesterday:

    A lot of the people who read a bestselling novel, for example, do not read much other fiction. By contrast, the audience for an obscure novel is largely composed of people who read a lot. That means the least popular books are judged by people who have the highest standards, while the most popular are judged by people who literally do not know any better. An American who read just one book this year was disproportionately likely to have read ‘The Lost Symbol’, by Dan Brown. He almost certainly liked it.
