Welcome, weirdlings

The woods are dark and deep and full of hungry things that creep.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved the weird — horror and other strange, unsettling things. She lived with nightmares and cultivated their whisperings in the dark. She journeyed into stories that chilled her bones and sent shivers up her spine. Monsters lingered in her company, scratching at the surface, trying to get in.

Welcome to the Weird, my friends.

I’ve been a fan of horror and the weird since I was a kid — a girl who would get nightmares but reach out for scary stories anyway.

Lately, I’ve been longing for a place where I could talk about scary movies, unsettling TV shows, strange video games, and other oddities that delight my little black heart.

Once Upon the Weird is that place.

A website is currently in the works, which will house my explorations into horror movies, TV shows, and video games.

This newsletter will provide a roundup of cool things, both from Once Upon the Weird and other places that delight in horror and the weird.

Join me on this strange new journey, my fellow weirdlings.

In the meantime, tell your friends!
