The nice lady over at Patsy’s Words of Wisdom, http://patsyblacksawyer.blogspot.com/
gave little old Gothic Faery Tales a prize!
This means a lot to me. Writing these strange stories is one of my profound passions, but online, you don’t always know if people even like them. But you continue to share hoping that, somewhere out there are some fans! That maybe your bit of entertainment made their day more interesting, mysterious, or enthralling.
Politicus.US gave this award to Patsy. Patsy writes a personal blog with down to earth humor and great quotes. She reads a lot and shares her insights. It’s a very fun and interesting blog.
This award originated at Will Oaks Studio a, wonderful blog that I visit regularly.
The rules of the award state that you must post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted you this award and a link to his/her blog. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs you have recently discovered and think are great! Remember to contact the bloggers you’ve awarded to let them know they have been chosen. The following are my choices for blogs that I have been following for quite a while. Please visit them too. I have good taste.
I am breaking them into three posts of five blogs each because I tend to go over the top.
Five of My Fifteen Favorite Blogs:
David Dolgacius writes wonderful posts about paranormal events, ghosts, cemeteries, alien abductions — the supernatural laced with science.
He also writes the odd Tarot blog, and may discuss Out of Body Experiences and Astrology. He is a truly wonderful person and I consider him a friend. Go there now!
Terri Windling’s Endicott Studio
This lady is one of most amazing artists! With Ellen Datlow, she has edited many anthologies of stories based on fairy tales by some very famous authors. I’ve bought most of them. (See sidebar)
Best Horror is one her annual anthologies along with smaller collections of stories based on themes such Fairies, Green Man, witches, etc.
Terri is also a visual artist, producing delicate, airy, original illustrations. She seems to live a beautiful life , moving between Arizona and England.

Supernatural Fairy Tales
Dorlana Vann does on her fabulous blog what I do on this one, but in her very different, contemporary style.
She also does film reviews, and each month, Chrissa Sandin, offers her reviews of current fantasy fiction.
Dorlana’s supernatural novels are on sale from her blog as well. Death is based on the Tarot card, and Jacklyn’s Ghost is a paranormal romance. Both have been very well received by her many fans.
The Ink Gypsy
I found Australian writer, Gypsy Thornton on Dorlanas’ blog. She had serialized a Steampunk version of Grimm’s Jorinda and Joringel, titled Cages, at Supernatural Fairy Tales. It included podcasts by Gypsy herself, and was extremely enjoyable. Her work is very professional and well produced, Once an animator, she is also and excellent visual designer. Her PDF of Cages is a work of art.
She has a few writing blogs. Here are two.:
This is one the most amazing blogs on the internet.
I found it while looking for pictures of Hell Mouths — true lover of the Gothic that I am.
On this blog an endless sea of the misshapen, enchanted, alien, and bewitched creatures are drawn up from the bottom of the sea…or so it seems.
Aeron Alfrey combines horrifying images from the depths of the subconscious mind with a wide knowledge of art history, religious beliefs, folk lore, and philosophy. It’s the thinking person’s Chamber of Horrors!
