Set back in my birthplace of sinister Ohio woodlands and grey Lake Erie skies, I couldn’t resist inserting some Los Angeles into “Annwn’s Maelstrom Festival: Concluding Volume of the Vampire Noctuaries” once I had moved to California in real life.

Anyone who grew up in the woods of Ohio then walks in the mountains of Los Angeles will understand exactly what I mean. There is a constant sense of being watched upon the shores of the Great Lakes. The waters themselves know you’re there. Gazing at the Pacific, you can feel it – the sea has not spoken the name of man in centuries.
