everybody got one i want mine

There are too many haunted mansions already, why add to the boredom?
Do you notice how there is something snug and warm about most of these depictions of Jean Ray's
famous house of horrors? How do you carry something written in the midst of WW II and great personal turmoil beyond tropes that make you want to sit comfortably near the fireplace and enjoy a good old-fashioned ghost story? How do you put the fear back in, the confusion, the scream of pure hysterical frenzy?
The answer is you cut, & let it bleed.
So lovers of the original novel, be warned, i did irrepairable damage to the book to do it justice.


( Check out the hilarious He-Man: Masters of the Universe video cover below. Of the book designs, i really like the Valdemar one, for its restraint. )

I quite like half of these. I always like the Marabout ones.
