Nightmare-Touch by Lafcadio Hearn
« on: March 02, 2010, 03:02:17 PM »
'His hobbies were fantastic. He knew all manner of odd things, dreadful things, uncanny things. He was purblind, and the shadow of a telegraph pole rose to him 'the shadow of a gigantic skeleton'. He studied Hoodooism [sic], witchcraft, etc. . . and knew all the horrible things about the old-time doings-frightful, barbaric, hideous punishments, etc.; and he knew some of the sweetest poetry in all tongues.'
