The Rise of "Cosmic Horror"

We are but days away from Halloween, and while it is nearly too late for me to make the changes to my get-up that will adequately distinguish James Joyce (circa, the Eye-Patch years) from a bog-standard pirate, it's never too late to read for you to some good horror! I'm quite fond of this recent list by Flavorwire, discussing the new wave of "Cosmic Horror": "There is something about the material fear of the ineffable, the strange, the alien that chimes more with the sad music of my soul."
