Bring out your visions of incomprehensible entities from unknown realms! Forbidden and dangerous knowledge! Irreversible madness from glimpsing creatures beyond the stars! Scientific curiosity decayed into existential dread! And, let us not forget – the catastrophic results of exploring the frozen, lightless corners of the world!

Kiernan, Thomas Ligotti, Laird Barron, Panos Cosmatos, Annihilation/Jeff Vandermeer’s Southern Reach trilogy, Algernon Blackwood’s “The Willows,” House of Leaves, Gideon Falls, Bird Box, The Three-Body Problem, The Thing, The Mist, The Void, and THE VOID are welcome.
