     Sci-Fi & Fantasy fans may recognise the title as a quote from Frank Herbert’s Dune.  Everybody else may simply appreciate the opportunity to explore new places from the comfort – and safety – of their favourite armchair or free wi-fi zone.

    This holiday season we are boldly going to Westeros (yes, really) to face the terrors of flight delays, lost luggage and untimely beheading so you don’t have to.

     We recommend that you keep an eye on Matt Copeman’s blog, “It Wasn’t My Fault…”, instead.  Matt is a journalism graduate based in Hull, UK City of Culture 2017.  He’s going places.  Literally.  He’s planning his next travel adventure right now and you could be there too – from the safety of your armchair of course 🙂  Just click the link below to subscribe…

     The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

     Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 50,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 19 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

     Greetings Blogsprites!  Its October and autumn is well and truly underway.  This month folk at home, by the Land of Green Ginger, will be looking forward to our annual travelling fair and the usual Halloween celebrations.

     Here, at Lily Wight ~ The Arcade of Arts & Arcana, there’ll be things to make you go “ooh” – cute gifs, Lego art, the latest installment of our Wheel of The Year calendar – and things to make you go “AAAaaaarrrgggggghhhhhhh!!!” – a whole month of grim, gothic and generally spooky vamp things (or vampy spook things if you prefer) including art, books, graphic novels and the odd jack o’ lantern.

     Carved pumpkins won’t be the only form of illumination this month as we’ve also received a lovely Shine On blog award from http://modernoracletarot.com/.  If you enjoy the Tarot posts you find here you’ll enjoy Ronda Snow’s work too.

     Last, but not least, a huge thank you to 7,798 subscribers who read this blog over 9 syndicated sites and helped Lily Wight achieve a daily hits personal best with 3,427 visitors on September 17th.  Keep those comments coming everyone x

Dare you peek into the Macabre?
