Sometimes, it’s nice to gaze up into the stars and get some perspective. You might contemplate the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, or try to hold in your mind the fact that even the emptiest bit of space you can see is filled with stars too far away for us to see from our planet. You might wonder if there’s intelligent life looking back at us, and what their memes are like. Maybe you’re tracing one of the constellations, ancient storytelling tools drawn through light-years of space, shapes that will last the course of human history several times over before the ever-shifting universe pulls them apart. Maybe you’re just thinking about Carrie Fisher or Carl Sagan. This week, our panel of contributors share with you some of our favorite stories that take place in the final frontier.
Hello hello hello! Wowie, dear readers, I am caffeinated! And very excited to share what BloodLetterPress is going to be up to for the next few months! We’ve had this blog up for a while now and have been churning out content ever since, but as the final days of Halloween Month draw closer, we’re getting ready to explode forth from our blog format into REAL LIVE APPEARANCES with our REAL LIFE SELVES! Details under the cut!
Hey all, I (Nagi) am in charge of this week’s Going Around feature. I wanted to stick with the theme of fall, but we already did spooky last week. But the autumnal times are also periods of wonderful color, at least if you’re living in certain climate zones. So I want to ask:
Why is color important in creative media? What are your favorite examples of color in a piece of art or a narrative?
Here at BloodLetterPress, we’re simply not satisfied with a single day of Halloween. Every day of October thus far has been yet another mischief-filled day of Halloween Month. We’re celebrating Second Halloween a few months from now when our contributor Nagi returns from overseas. We’ve been stocking up on candy for Reverse Trick-Or-Treating and watching a new horror film every other night or so. This week, we thought we’d share some of our favorite pieces of seasonally spine-chilling media.
