THE DIRE DAYS OF WILLOWEEP MANOR is a graphic novel written by Shaenon Garrity (artist Christopher Baldwin), and it should provide a certain amusement to those who hold an appreciation for the Gothic genre. I like Shaenon, obviously (she did my first novel cover), but I’d like this even if I didn’t know her. Assuming that it had come across my radar, obviously; so huzzah for interacting with other people, hey?
Shaenon Garrity, of course, is the artist who did the FROZEN DREAMS cover (and wasn’t that a great get for me). She now has a Kickstarter out for Volumes 9 and 10 for her consistently excellent Skin Horse webcomic. I jumped to back this, and heartily recommend that you do the same.

**I could probably find the players.
Which is not supposed to be shocking – Songs In The Key Of X: Music From And Inspired By The X-Files was made in 1996 – but it still is. I mean, I must have listened to stuff like this, back then. I just don’t remember doing that.
I mean, it’s not bad. I’m glad that Shaenon Garrity recommended it on her X-Files recap comic Monster of the Week. But it’s of its time; hoo, yeah.
