Mister Ghost’s Highly Enviable Monthly Parcel of Simple yet Amazing Wonderments, a mystery parcel of postcards, greeting cards, stickers, notebooks, and more, is focusing on Edgar Allan Poe’s masterpiece “The Raven” this month. Intrigued? View the parcel in our store.
We are happy to present master Poe’s work.
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Only this, and nothing more.”
Re: post, “Specters”
Quite self sufficient, they will take care of their own needs without interference. They need not so much training as clear instructions, but will faithfully conduct business provided to them — think of them as a well trained butler.
They will defend themselves (and you), but will not provoke the attack of any other creature in your employ.
Some types of ghosts and other forms of undead are “reborn” at sundown and “perish” at sunrise. Memories made during the night are lost. This explains why some ghosts are locked in eternal cycles until freed or destroyed.
For ghostly lovers, this is utter bliss. For those who have risen from the grave as a punishment, it is utter hell.
Everyone who visits the Evil Supply Co. graveyard between now and the end of August will be haunted by a specter of their own choosing.
Our specters creep along and perform tasks you leave behind. Cleaning up tea mugs, sharpening pencils, disposing of… things for you.
They ask no questions, they require no care. Free for all visitors, now through August! Your specter will stay with you for ninety days.
If you are interested in becoming a specter someday, we recommend our “Ghost in Training" shirt.
Much needed newsletter redesign, hits your inboxes tomorrow.
We are starting a rule that each mailing must include a portion of poetry — if we are asking you to look at our ads, you deserve something beautiful (and possibly horrifying) in return.
