Howard Phillips Lovecraft - or H.P. Lovecraft as he is better known - is a name synonomous with horror fiction. His influential writings didn't have much notority before his demise, but he is now regarded as one of the most significant horror and weird fiction writers of all time.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, to Winfield Scott Lovecraft and Sarah Susan "Susie" Phillips Lovecraft, Howard Phillips took on employment as a travelling salesman for his father until he was sent to Butler Hospital for a psychotic episode in a Chicago hotel. Winfield spent five years in the commitment ward before his death in 1898, with his...

Last year during the Halloween season, one of my favourite vegan Instagrammers posted a lot about celebrating Samhain instead of Halloween – a traditional pagan holiday that is associated with witches. Since looking deeper into alchemy and gaining connection to the universe and to the elements, I was quite drawn into the idea of celebrating Samhain and adding it to my list of October activities.

The only issue is that these holidays celebrated by witches occurred in the north, so their festivities aligned with the seasons. Here in the Southern hemisphere our seasons are completely opposite to those in the North, and sinc...

Forget internet shopping and magazine subscriptions - these days you can sign up to get just about anything delivered to your door, and if you are anything like me receiving a box of goodies your purchased earlier feels like getting a special present from yourself.

This is exactly what loot boxes are. Depending on what you're into, you can get boxes to fit any type of interest, from the Young Adult book subscription Owl Crate to the box of gifts for the lonely hearts with SingleSwag. They make great presents, or even just as something to "treat yo'self" but it is generally filled with a few items that will interest you o...

One of my favourite episodes of the TV show Supernatural was season one's second episode about the mythical Wendigo, and I wanted to dive a little bit deeper into the history of this man-eating monster that is native to the northern forests of America and Canada.

The legend of the Wendigo comes from native Algonquin-speaking tribes of the Ojibwe, the Saulteaux, the Cree, the Naskapi. and the Innu people - all traditional North American tribes. The Wendigo is describes as a malevolent, cannibalistic supernatural being that is the embodiment of gluttony, greed, and excess. The creature is mentioned in the legend that whene...

"Quoff the Raven, "Nevermore!""

It is extremely likely that you have heard this intriguing phrase uttered at some point in your life, but it is only a snapshot of the dark literary genius that wrote it. Edgar Allan Poe penned many tales and poems that catapulted him into macabre fame, among them his 1841 detective story The Murders in the Rue Morgue, and the aforementioned 1845 poem The Raven.

Born on January 19, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts to English actors, Poe had an aptitude for the English language, training with classical education in Scotland, England and then Virginia, where his penchant for gambling saw him kic...

As I started watching the thirteenth season of my favourite TV Show Supernatural and I realised something that I probably should not be proud of.

I kind of had a crush on the Devil.

Or more specifically, the actor Mark Pellegrino who plays the character of Lucifer in the show. Now usually I'm a Dean girl all the way, but something in me completely switched of late when I found myself horny and alone at a festival. I matched with a guy on Tinder and when we met up sparks flew and we got straight down to business.

But as we were making out on the oval and I looked down at him, I saw him smile this cheeky half grin and I inst...
