In the spirit of all of the panic that has been going around about COVID-19, I wrote a short horror story as if it were the daily diary of someone who was just starting to realize the gravity of what we're going through on a global level. It's pure fiction with only one Fairbanks name drop, my favorite watering hole; hopefully, they're not terribly upset by it. I carried on that theme with an article about the origins of Pandora's Box and a retelling of the Greek myth that made Pandora famous. The rest of the week I finish up with something we're all kind of feeling right now, existential dread as well as grave robbing. Interested in seeing more horror related content?

This week I dove into ghost ships, both the scientific theories of how they exist (and they do!) as well as the lore that surrounds them, but I also did two more Lovecraft-centric articles, one about the creatures that were made famous years after his death, as well as a sort of send-off to his legacy as an author. There are a lot of less than cheery parts of his personal viewpoints that I purposefully neglected to speak about, as they did little to actually contribute to his work in the realm of horror, so while they may be incredibly relevant when in regards to him as a human being, I didn't feel as if they were relevant to his body of work.

After Lovecraft, I discussed how the human race is genetically engineered to have a deeply seated fear of [...]

This week I went more in-depth with the topics that I wrote about for Puzzle Box Horror, in an effort to really give some good information on two serious topics within the realm of horror. The first topic is all about Friday the 13th and while it's considered a superstition at best, it has inspired all sorts of creative interpretations within the horror genre. The second topic is more of a research article, geared towards those who enjoy numbers and statistics, it shows how the trend in horror has gone from gory slasher flicks to the more psychological, paranormal, and supernatural aspects of what causes fear.
