Poll time!

At the rate at which the weeks are flying past, October will be here before we know it. Since I'm the anal, pre-planning sort, and I have an action-packed fall season before me, I thought I'd look ahead and post this poll.

FYI, for those of you who don't know, for the last seven years I've had a tradition of turning this blog into a month-long celebration of Halloween, posting a "spooky post" every day in October. You can see my past October posts here.

(Note: If you're not on LiveJournal and can't vote via the ticky-boxes, you're welcome to leave a comment!)

Thanks for your feedback, my friends!

PS. On a Lovecraft-loving note, check out this Kickstarter for a dieselpunk Savage Worlds setting called Frozen Skies. Of particular interest is the setting, which features Lovecraftian elements (specifically reminiscent of At the Mountains of Madness). Unfortunately, pledges have been a touch anemic. sittingduck1313 is spreading the word in hopes that some eleventh-hour pledges will help the campaign reach its goal.

I love your October posts(also the ones Nov-Sept).....I only worry that you are over-burdening yourself ......

what the hell, I'll be selfish: knock yourself out!

LOL! Thanks for this. I look at it as if this takes the place of all the time I'd spend planning and hosting a Halloween party, only everyone gets to attend whenever they wish, and the festivities spread out over an entire month!

October Posts
You do an outstanding job with these. The short stories/poems and movie recommendations are very much appreciated.

It's nice to see others who enjoy the October Season as much as I do.

Another work of fiction which the author acknowledged as an inspiration for Frozen Skies is Firefly, for its people not always on the right side of the law scraping by out on the frontier premise.

Sweet! I do hope this eventually gets funded and made.

Love your spooky posts!
Yes, yes, yes - please continue your daily spooky posts for October! I love reading Halloween and spooky things, and I think it was your October posts that first got me to your site.

Several of your topics sound delightful, but my favorites would be a mix of Halloween-esque viewing/listening/reading and This Day in Spooky History non-fiction.

Re: Love your spooky posts!
Fantastic! Thank you so much for your kind words and your helpful feedback. I'll definitely plan on including these "ingredients" into the countdown this year.
