Keith Emerson - reflections in progress

I'm still in shock.

I keep searching for information and commentary from people who knew him well, and what they say isn't pretty.

Ultimately, this incredibly gifted man ended up being a victim of that beast so many of us struggle with.

Depression.

Apparently, he had fought it for a long, long time, and was perhaps more sensitive to criticism than anyone knew.

Until it was too late.

This one really hurts. I pray for the repose of his soul.

Passover

Lovecraft fans will adore this one!

Good Lord! Don't read this late at night, alone in the dark, unless you want to sleep with the lights on for the next ten years!

A community under attack by - what? No one knows, but it moves methodically, and one family at the heart of the story knows they are next. Piece by piece, they assemble the puzzle, but will it be too late?

The descriptions are terrifying. I couldn't put it down. You won't be able to, either. Read it!

Memoir of a Death Angel

Here is a fascinating read for all you spiritual/spooky-minded folks. Check it out!

Anagnost delves into Greek Orthodoxy and mysticism with such depth. The story is vivid and exciting, and paints pictures and action like scenes from a film in the reader's head. One can really see/hear situations as they unfold. There is such a beautiful poignancy to Persephone's relationship with Yiayia Friday. Persephone's visits with the priests are so evocative, and in particular, I was delighted by Brother Bartholomew, whose sole function is to curse things that go wrong. He is quite inventive, and so extreme as to be humorous at times.


This really is a book like no other, and one I will re-read over the years. I expect I will uncover new treasures each time.
