It’s been a busy time — as a writer who loves ghosts, ghouls, and everything spooky, the Season of Shadows always means more work for me.
Now that we’ve hit November (aka post-Halloween depression season) I can finally take stock and update what’s been going on.
First of all, I visited the interactive Resident Evil haunted house at Universal Studios Japan and wrote about it for Playboy.
By the way–that link is now Safe For Work since Playboy‘s gone nude-free.
I also had a just-for-fun piece on GamesRadar+ about all the ridiculous outfits the Pokémon company has dressed Pikachu in. Are you ready to see a J-Pop Pikachu? Is anybody?
And finally, I wrote a piece for Slate‘s Future Tense Blog on how H.P. Lovecraft is an unrecognized master of environmental horror. It also has some thoughts about how society tends to age out of certain fears, and age into others.
So that was Halloween. Bring on November! Gonna be a good one.
