Are you bored or boring? There's a world of difference between the two, and I'm sure you take pains to keep those statements straight. It's just as important to differentiate between being scared and being scary! However, the line between "frightened" and "frightening" is a bit blurred in Japanese...

My favorite season is rapidly approaching–Halloween. A while back I wrote about being scared and some reasons why we like to be frightened. (see my blog---On Being Scared.) So as we creep into the season of monsters and things that go bump in the night, it’s fun to revisit and remember what compels...

I happened upon this video about the impacts of climate change soon after Halloween and was thoroughly frightened. I hadn't realized how terribly vulnerable we are to high water damage and how unprepared we are. This video describes what would happen if the Old River Control System failed. Watch...

As an author of horror and thrillers, I love this time of year. There’s nothing like a web covered house with spiders hanging from the front porch to get my pulse racing. And of course, there are all the classic scary movies to choose from on the TV listings.  Zombies, vampires, werewolves,...

Many a long year ago, from my hovel at the top of a steep set of stairs, I scared the bejeezuz out of some teen-agers one  Eve of All Hallows. I had put a black light in the naked and swinging light fixture. I had my door open, with suitable haunting music (like Dance Macabre)  piped...

     As I stepped from my vehicle a few nights ago, the wind blew just right and a chill went through me as I heard my name being whispered. Maybe it wasn't the wind. I don't know. Nearing midnight with the stars filling the sky and the wind blowing through the pines up on the...

Now when I started trying to do this as a regular blog again... with the lofty goal of being *gasp* weekly, I didn't really forsee the hassles of recent weeks coming to a pass. Of the myriad of issues that have come about, one such reason is the formation of a new company. http://www....

It was a Sunday evening.  Jessie walked home from her best friend’s house, just as she did every Sunday.  It was still early, but as the seasons had changed, the sky grew dark earlier than it had over the summer.  She knew she shouldn’t have brought her backpack, but it was full of fun stuff that...
