What is the residue of a nightmare? Do you carry it with you throughout your day or shrug it off and forget it? Authors of our darkest stories play within the shadows of dreams, are they accurate or merely echoing a society's fears?

This season, while the trees die and the wind chills the spirit, visit some of my favorite websites to poke around their nightmares:

Edgar Allan Poe
The Shadowlands
Ghost stories in American folklore
The Moonlit Road - one of my very favorite sites!

Join the discussion and add your own favorites to the list!

Edgar Allen Poe has long been one of my favorite writers. I admire his suspenseful, creative musings. The Cask of Amontillado is definitely one of my favories.

When it comes to nightmares, I marvel at the way the general public buys into scary visions. Perhaps deep down, many people delight in being scared? I wonder if they would be truly amazed to discover they see exactly what they project? Its the law of attraction.

Maybe fall is the time that our brains think of as scary. Think about it; Halloween, dying trees...
