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."
