Mythology of the Dark

Mythology of the Dark… because many associate humankind’s older, darker, paranormal accounts with Victorian or Neopagan imagery.

I would hate for some poor soul to be seeking here skipping leprechauns with butterfly wings, only to encounter ghosts, witches, headhunters, werewolves, the undead, shapeshifting animals, and trees with roots that stretch so far into the dank and dirty realms of the underworld that you’ll wish you packed your toothbrush.

No, that would not do at all now would it? Sure, you might find the occasional fairy dancing a jig here or there, but those hoodlums are likely only hanging around with the hopes of lifting your wallet.

So be forewarned, these tales emerge from a time of darkness and misery, where ghostly beings lurked around the curve of every road and where gods existed within the darkness and confines of every shadow. Some would believe, that these tales harbour grains of truth still, that there is, in fact, a world of dark and mysterious beings which exists in an overlapping realm parallel to our own.

It may be these folks – the believers – who will find the greatest contentment here. Others may simply find solace in this rolling darkness; a peace which they had once been told by their elders to fear…

Most often mythological or legend-based, the blog will sometimes be a cryptozoological shout-out, horror related, or an examination of a modern day haunting, as well.

So beware seeker, ye enter here at your own risk!
