It may have fallen from vogue, but the Slenderman is still out there, watching from a distance. Just try not to notice it, or it may just notice you back.

For more on the slenderman, check out perhaps the most popular piece of fan art surrounding it: the “Marble Hornets” web series.

Announcing October’s theme…

This Month’s Theme: Creepypasta

This is something we’ve wanted to discuss for a loooong time. It’s such a strange literary phenomenon. Few movements have *ever* lead to such surges in the popularity of writing, and the fact that it all revolves around the horror genre must mean *something*.

So many curiosities, so much general strangeness. This should be a fun month.
