DARK LITERATURE:

Monster Librarian

"Read to survive." This is an extremely useful, helpful and important resource for horror books, dark librarians, and lovers of horror fiction. There are resources for librarians, book reviews, vampire fiction reviews, and info on upcoming horror fiction releases. I really enjoyed browsing this site tonight and got quite off track exploring their offerings.

DARK SHOPS:

The Art of Reese

Bubbles & Frown

Bubbles & Frown is a Los Angeles-based haberdashery shop. I love how distinctive and unique their creations are. They use a lot of feathers in their pieces. I'm getting a kick out of their "Ritzy von Ritzerson" mini top hat!
