Le Rêveur Parle: An Interview with Erin Morgenstern by J.L. Schnabel

Upon first reading The Night Circus, the void in your heart that you were previously unaware of is filled. From its opening lines, you are stolen away and captivated by its lyrical story and magical characters, your life forever enriched by your experience with it. You find yourself unconsciously nodding to any stranger in the street […]

How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility

A few months ago Sam invited the staff writers to pen some personal pieces for Haute Macabre. I’ve since considered writing about a variety of subjects that interest me, but there’s something else, something much more personal that’s been on my mind for a very long time and this suddenly seemed like a singular opportunity to […]

Brooke Shaden: Visceral Visual Narratives

Every so often I encounter lists of wonderful words that describe emotions for which there are no English equivalents. (Saudade remains my most favorite.) Brooke Shaden accomplishes the same feat with photography, complex and raw emotions expressed in single square narrative images. The very first time I saw one of Brooke Shaden’s self-portraits she’d squeeze herself into a freezer for a piece […]

Olaf Hajek for Mystic Medusa Piece

Seeing Stars With Mystic Medusa (Interview + Discount Code)

I don’t believe in much of anything, to be honest. God or Satan? Nope. The afterlife? Eh, mostly no. Human kindness and decency? The jury’s still out on that one, but I suppose can sometimes be surprised. But divining my daily life choices and long term plans via the cosmic dance of the stars and […]
