January 2019: 15 books and scripts read

This month's standout was Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard. In this darkly humorous fantasy novel, Johannes has one year to gather one hundred souls in order to reclaim his own - all while managing a twisted traveling carnival and its employees, most of whom are undead or unreal.

Poetry Friday: Fade Into You by Mazzy Star

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take the breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth

You live your life, you go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

- Fade Into You by Mazzy Star
