The Night Blogger You don’t have to believe the stories on my blog, you can dismiss them as good hallucinations or bad fiction if you want to but they’re all true. The darkness was never empty, there are things that wait for the innocent and unwary to turn their backs. What is it you think I’m talking about here? Ghosts? Vampires? Ghouls? If only it were that simple. The creatures of the night are still out there but they’re not shadowing your every footstep. They just check your status updates from the comfort of their tombs. All I ever wanted was to be a Do-It-Yourself style reporter but more often than I like I find myself becoming part of my stories. It turns out gods and monsters don’t like their secrets getting out any more than your standard politician or celebrity. We all know how this is going to turn out in the end; I’m already long overdue for jail, the loony bin or a guest of honor spot at a monster buffet but until that fateful day I’m not going to back down or give up. My name is Brian Foster and some people call me the Night Blogger.

  • Sick as a dog the last week or so...
    by Al Bruno III on June 1, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    Since Tuesday it has gone like this; 1.) Cold 2.) 30 minute nosebleed 3.) ER visit 4.) BP of 250/160 (Apparently this is bad.) 5.) Mucho medicines. 6.) Deep painful cough develops. 7.) I find I can cough and fart at the same time. (Is that a superpower?) 8.) Back to the doctor to be given codeine. 9.) Take codeine. Discover I am allergic to said medicine and retch wildly. 10.) Decide I am going to have to drop a bonus episode, which I keep in reserve for emergencies like this. So that's where are today. Sorry the latest episode of 'Monster of the Week' is delayed. Please enjoy this episode and Patreons, be assured you will not be charged for it. […]
