It’s time for another giveaway! I have an essay in Llewellyn’s 2015 Magical Almanac, and they sent me an extra copy, so I’m giving it to one lucky winner. Here’s how it works:

—Reblog/share/etc. this post, no more than once a day, between now and noon on Friday, October 3, 2014. Each share is a chance to win, and the winner will be chosen using a random number generator. No purchase is necessary, though interested folks are invited to check out my books and artwork.

—Giveaway only open to residents of the U.S. 18 years and older. Curious why these restrictions are in place? Read this.

—Winner will be notified via private message. If they do not respond to claim the book within three days, a new winner will be randomly selected.

Thank you!


It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down.  The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites.  An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us.  The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
