Death Reach

I was almost paralyzed, but not too much so to make a feeble effort towards flight; a backward stumble which failed to break the spell in which the nameless, voiceless monster held me. My eyes bewitched by the glassy orbs which stared loathsomely into them, refused to close; though they were mercifully blurred, and showedContinue reading “Death Reach”

The Killing Moon

The full moon nearest the autumnal equinox. Generally believed as a time when the boundary between the spirit world and the earthly realm is at its thinnest and when spirits are most likely to be seen on earth. A prosperous time for holding séances and channeling the dead. Also a bountiful time for divination andContinue reading “The Killing Moon”

The Doppelgänger

Today’s showcase details our next pendant design: The Doppelgänger. The ghostly double of a living person, a doppelgänger is generally regarded as a harbinger of bad luck. The appearance of a doppelgänger as seen by a person’s friends or relatives portends illness or danger, while seeing one’s own doppelgänger is an omen of death.
