.@kumailn That's the perfect way to describe it. If this is how Big Brother controls us at least it's with great stories & not Victory Gin.
Good night. Sorry. To my followers and to any of the shows I left out. There's too many of you & you're all quality.
Sigh. And #VentureBros, #AdventureTime, #WildKratts, #YoGabbaGabba & #TrueDetective (my 5 year-old daughter's faves)
.@BRIANMBENDIS I take back my excitement about POWERS.
Oh GODDAMIT. #Hannibal. Did I forget that one because it's the most like cinema? How is that beauty on network TV?

Join the List!

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Horror of the Heights" (1913)

@ 1:00 PM

Arthur Conan Doyle writing a horror story?! And what's more, it's a big, honking, flying MONSTER story?

Well, yeah. And it works. The creator of Sherlock Holmes is channeling Lovecraft here. But where Lovecraft suggests, Doyle likes to be plausible...but explicit. Gahan Wilson, in his introduction to this story, says you'll think about this on your next transatlantic flight and look up. So many times when I've been on an airplane, and we entered one of those huge-but-enclosed canyons of clouds, I thought of this. Long before I ever read this story. And Doyle brought my suspicions to life. To horrible, bloated life.
