Halloween Countdown, Day 4

Here are three Halloween-friendly Kickstarters to put on your radar:
- Halloween Haiku II and Other Hauntings. Nutshell: This publication is already funded, pledges start at $1, and there's lots of fun, macabre poetry. Ends Oct. 14.
- "This House Is Haunted." Nutshell: This game is already funded, and you use your own house as the game board. Ends Nov. 1. (Thanks to sittingduck1313.)
- Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown. Nutshell: This excellent documentary (I own it on DVD!) really deserves an extended blu-ray edition. This release is more than half funded, but it still needs just a bit more love. Ends Oct. 23.

“Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.”
- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations. ix. 3.*

"A Girl and Her Corpse" by Michael Hutter (source)

* A more literal translation: "Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favour; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills."

Geez, not exactly going for subtlety in that illustration.

Aw, it's the Halloween season. We don't need no stinkin' subtlety! *wink*
