As we roll into the shades and tones of Autumn - not to mention the creeping nights, telling of Halloween to come - I hope that you all have been doing well, and are reasonably prosperous, wherever you may be. In my own regard, I can attest that it hasn't quite been the summer so intended, and it has shown in some ways. Multiples of distractions, taxes on my time and other issues have a uncanny way of pressing your schedule - the result being problematic in the least and frustrating at worst, as can be imagined. Still, I am hoping for a more productive Autumn as the days cool and thoughts are led to sometimes stiller, deeper places.
With summer cooling in my thoughts, and hopefully the coming months to be productive, I would like to share some news. At the beginning of this year I began to reflect on my wider online presence and how I relate my personal interests, though also my other projects and workings too. After some consideration, I decided to begin a wider process which required some initial cultivation, in places. It's in this light that I would like to debut my relatively new blog.
Named in favor of its intended eclectic, diverse and sometimes particular contents, Eldritch Works began in February of 2015 and has been growing incrementally since, with a number of topics in line to be considered for the future, though with a predilection for the strange and unusual, as can sometimes be thought.
As found in the preview above, this is a select sample of current and future content on the blog, though for those in search of a more concise description of what may be found here, and in the future, I can say the following can be found below.
- Literature and Strange Fiction
- Eldritch subjects: the occult, esoteric and fortean
- Politics and Social Commentary
- Niche Movies
- Pop Culture Reflections
- Transformation and Identity
- YouTube Media
- Computer Games and related pop culture
- Personal Projects
The list above fairly comprehensive in bringing the identity of the blog over, I take this step as part of cultivating a wider, progressive online presence in the future. Though relatively nascent, the link to the blog can be found below; the current focus a three part special on the early works of H.P. Lovecraft called "Before Cthulhu: Lovecraft's Early Eldritch", currently in part two - the period 1920 and 1921.
My thanks again,
