Halloween is just a bit of modern fun, imported from USA, and that's how I see it when I write my ghostly pages with horror photos & poems

My Thoughts About Halloween, Followed By Some of My Creepy Poetry About Fear & Foreboding

When I think of Halloween, I picture happy little children at dusk, dressed up in masks and cloaks, wielding pitchforks and brooms, going round their neighbours' houses, banging on doors, shouting "Trick or Treat" and demanding gifts from strangers. For some reason this is considered to be a bit of fun, and wholly acceptable on 31st October. In fact a bit like Christmas, but without the carols.

At any other time of the year, the police would have something to say if they saw youngsters going about demanding money and sweets with menaces from elderly people and eagerly waiting paedophiles.

Let the Real Dracula Story Scare you to Death - You can find this on Amazon

If you've only seen the Dracula films or read the comic, you will be very pleasantly surprised by the book. A real gothic tale, very well written by an author who made his name with this gripping story. And deservedly so, because the book is rivetting - I read it years ago, and couldn't put it down.

So many Dracula films have been made that the theme must have given rise to more films than almost any other book. It was full of suspense, eerie and sensual in a way that only Victorians could convey without actually putting the sensuality into words.

Adopting the conceit that Stoker's narrative is based on fact, Klinger elucidates the plot and historical context for both Stoker devotees and those more familiar with Count Dracula from countless popular culture versions. Because he had privileged access to the typescript Stoker delivered to his publisher, Klinger is able to note changes between it and the first edition and comment on the reasons for them. Through close reading, Klinger raises questions about such matters as the role of lead vampire-hunter Van Helsing and whether the villainous count is actually dispatched at book's end.


Night Windows Can Give Rise To Dark Thoughts

My Scary Poem:

In London Darkness Only Lies Within the Mind

On a bus

after dusk on a winter's evening,

fragments of lives flash by,

framed in gold-lit windows

Nothing spectacular -

a mother in the kitchen making tea,

a family sit round to watch TV.

No murders

and very little violence.

But wait, what's that?

A man is strangling his wife

I think. The bus moves on,

too fast to witness the event.

Or had he merely stroked her neck

with barely any murderous intent?

Two boys wave wildly,

noses pressed against the glinting glass;

a man conceals his face from view

as we fly past.

My stop.

Doubtful doorways swathed in shadow

replace the well-lit safety of the bus

I walk past swarthy cats

scuttling rats

groping branches

up the front path lined with gloomy bays

where criminals might crouch

and reach the safety of my own dear porch,

switch on the lights, and once again I find

that in London darkness only lies within the mind.

Another Scary Poem for Halloween - "A Dark Place"

A Dark Place

Through thigh-high water

Where dark volcanic bayonets

Rise imperiously from the sea

I wade between black rocks

Lashed with frothing waves,

Battling to round them,

Stumbling, swept off balance.

I reach the place beyond.

Strands of rank black seaweed

Strung along the beach,

Sombre walls overlook

A desolate bay where

The sun's rays never reach,

And gloomy caves

Cling closely to their secrets.

In high places

Cormorants crouch watchfully.

I turn back,
