Often the most powerful and moving stories are generated by writers who return time and again to a particular idea, theme, or image. Obsession in a writer's imagination can lead to accomplishment or to self-destruction. Consider Poe and his pale, dead bride; his fascination with confinement and mortality; his illness and premature death. Or Flannery O'Connor's far less soul-crushing fondness for peacocks. Some writers pay a high price for their obsessions, while others maintain a crucial distance. Whichever the case, obsessions can produce compelling fiction.
Little Visible Delight is an anthology of original stories in which eleven authors of dark fiction explore some their most intimate, writerly obsessions.

I hate doing this sort of thing, but if you have an inclination and would like to help this site, could you please consider voting for Ginger Nuts of Horror, in the review site category of this award. Thank you very much.
This has been a funny old year with some great ups and some terrible downs. At one point I was all ready to jack to this in. Then I remembered that you can't keep a Ginger down, let alone a Ginger Nut.
So to all of those who supported me this year by reading, commenting, and sharing my little corner of the internet, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your support means the world to me, hope you all have a fantastic Christmas, and here's to 2014, lets make it the best year ever
