A Short Story: Desolation

Based on image prompt here. Everything opposing me was unapologetically urban. For as far as I could see, there wasn’t a single sign of life that wasn’t human; no trees, no blossoming flowers and no restless weeds attempting to fill the cracks in the pavement. Only monoliths of concrete soaring from each sidewalk in the same, ceaseless arrangement. I enjoyed my nights here because even … Continue reading A Short Story: Desolation

Book Review of Dracula by Bram Stoker

I previously, perhaps during Summer, wrote a brief review of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Reading it back, as one of the revolutionary classics of the gothic genre and currently my most-favoured book, I don’t think I gave the tale and it’s author the justice that they deserved. Whenever the word Dracula is mentioned, it’s easy to imagine seductive beings with a thirst for blood and that’s … Continue reading Book Review of Dracula by Bram Stoker

A Short Story: Psychologist’s Notepad

“Describe yourself as if you are reading from a psychologist’s notepad. Analyse your behaviour, make possible diagnoses, etc.” Whilst I should be thinking about why I feel the way I feel and do the things that I do, I can’t help but consider what they think. Then again, I can’t help but consider what everyone thinks of my existence. Perhaps that’s my problem. Although, that … Continue reading A Short Story: Psychologist’s Notepad
