LINK OF THE DAY: At Gothic Cemetery Art you will find several different albums of cemetery art, including black and white photographs of unusual cemetery decorations and mausoleums.

LITERATURE OF THE DAY: Today's spooky reading is "The Mummy's Foot" by Theophile Gautier (1811-1872).

Excerpt from "The Mummy's Foot" by Theophile Gautier:

"Old Pharaoh will not be well pleased, he loved his daughter - the dear man!"

"You speak as if you were a contemporary of his. You are old enough, goodness knows, but you do not date back to the Pyramids of Egypt," I answered, laughingly, from the threshold. I went home, delighted with my acquisition.
