Goth directory updates

Right here, in our ever-expanding directory. Keep sending up the links and tips, people!

Clive Barker Free Wallpapers

Just uploaded: Free Wallpapers to tribute Clive Barker! The "Everville" / "Great and Secret Show" wallpaper will also find its way into the T-shirt shop we're setting up.

Directory updates...and Clive Barker!

Today's seen lots of updates to our directory, and we've also put up an article about one of the true masters of horror: Clive Barker.

Absinthe - the free desktop wallpaper!

Following up on our article about that most gothic of drinks - Absinthe - we have now a free desktop wallpaper to celebrate the spirit of the green fairy. Get it and give your screen a legendary green tint!

Looking for the Green Fairy?

Look no further than to the next bottle of Absinthe, the legendary and lethally strong drink that was all the rage in the 19th century. IF there ever was a trademark gothic drink, this is it. Read a short summary about Absinthe here!

Fantasy- and Goth Directory updates (and lots of them)

Our effort to chew our way through our email backlog continues, and we're constantly updating our directory with new links to interesting goth-, horror- and fantasy websites.

Oscar Wilde book review

As a follow-up to our new Oscar Wilde free desktop wallpapers, we have just uploaded a review of his legendary gothic novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray". Read it here!

Oscar Wilde and Dorian Gray Free Desktop Wallpapers

To celebrate the great Oscar Wilde and his standout work "The Picture of Dorian Gray", a gothich novel if there ever was one, we have just uploaded free wallpapers. One's got his name, the other promotes Basil Hallward - the painter of the famous picture. These two prints will be available on T-shirts in the shop we're setting up.

More, um, overhaul

We're rolling out a new version of the whole website due to some last minute changes. The good news? Easier to navigate all the wallpapers, we hope.

Oh, and another thing: we're also busy uploading our best wallpapers to a T-shirt shop we've got in the works. In other words, soon you can get our goth pics on apparel (ie black T-shirts, men's and women's).

There will also be some brand new prints themed around books like Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) novels, Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray - and many more.


As we're in the process of revamping (irresistible pun intended) our website, things might be a little glitchy over the coming days. If something's wrong - be patient, we're working on it!

The Greetings are out there...

We've finally converted our last greetings to free pictures. The ideal way to send a special "hello" to a friend, these MMS pics are one of a kind. As before, we've got three categories of them: Fun, Love and Quotes - all with goth, fantasy or similar themes.

Directory Updates Mania

We've got a nasty email backlog that we're tearing through right now, so all of you who have asked to be included in our directory with links to gothic sites will see your listings up soon. Bear with us.

New Free Desktop Wallpapers: Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre

Right on the classic heels of our article on Charlotte Bronte's important gothic novel, we have just uploaded free wallpapers to tribute Jane Eyre. We've also got an article up where you can read about Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. Ever heard of the madwoman in the attic? This is where she's from.

Directory Updates

More links added to our fledgling but ever-expanding directory, where we aim to link to all kinds of quality goth-, horror- and fantasy websites.

More greetings

The conversion goes on. This time, we've uploaded free text message pictures with phrases in Klingon.

RIP Peter Steele

Tribute desktop wallpapers for Peter Steele of Type O Negative fame. Rest in peace, Peter.
