There is a world unseen by us,
a land of light and shadows where myth and history reside.
It manifests itself when a baby graces us with a smile,
the sunshine warms our faces,
the moonlight casts our shadows,
a melody stirs our emotions,
or the written word moves us in some, inexplicable way.

That world is the crucible that we are all born to pursue.
This is part of my journey.

Welcome, fellow traveler.
J.Edward Fitzgerald

Fans of Gothic Horror, Literature Fantastique, and all Things That Go Bump In The Night, can now enjoy a dose of their favorite thrill, on the go. Simply click or paste https://echolakeroad.net/2011/01/01/into the browser window on your smartphone, tablet, or notebook computer, and you will arrive right here, at Echo Lake Road, home of The Raven Chronicles, the online, episodic tale of lust and blood, myth and magic.

Subscription is free and easy. Scroll the page all the way to the bottom. In the green panel you will see EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION in bold letters and a Sign me up! button. Click the button, follow the prompts, and you’ll be notified by e-mail, about twice a month, when a new chapter is posted.

Navigation on Echo Lake Road is simple. Once you’ve begun the journey and wish to revisit previous chapters, or preview future chapters, you can use one of two methods:

At the bottom of the text window, in bold green lettering, find OLDER ENTRIES; an arrow next to it points to the left. Click OLDER ENTRIES and the text block will roll back to the previous entry. One page back, NEWER ENTRIES appears on the bottom, with an arrow to the right. Now you can roll the text blocks like pages in a book until you find your leaving-off point, or move forward to subsequent chapters.

The other option is to navigate using the ARCHIVES menu. The drop down will allow you to select the month, or you can roll back the months by clicking the green month abbreviation at the bottom of the calendar. The calendar initially displays the current month. Dates when new chapters were posted are in bold typeface and underlined in the Calendar.

Don’t neglect to check out WORDS, a collection of pocket wisdom, WORKS, a page of periodically changing short stories, and At The Drive-In, a literary homage to cinema under the stars.

I want to thank all our past visitors the past 2 years, and look forward to seeing more of you soon at echolakeroad.net, home of Sterns-Carson Sanitarium and The Raven Chronicles.
