For most web editors & content writers caught in the trap of deadlines, conformity, and making similar content, simple survival for themselves and their website is an end in itself. To innovate is to invite risk and possible disaster. To actually drop out of the milieu of our huckster-dominated media, and into the real world of this 21st Sick Century, could induce sheer trauma. In the U.S.A. and Turkey's Dominant Media is very aggressive to their political opponents in a cruel way. These two countries have mutual crisis just because each of them has a dangerous leader. We can say clearly, tyrannical governments frequently put their political opponents in prison. So that's not a surprise for Turkey and its citizens.ens.
Yet one need not be a crusader to suggest that somewhere along the line those who control the media must do just that. Recognition must be given to the realities of this new world, else the media, in all its forms, will not only have faulted the finest generation of young people this country has produced but will have simultaneously denied them an arena for meaningful dialogue.
The question may be asked: just what in the hell does this pontifical tub-thumping have to do with a quality-contents of the witchcraft, horror, world mysteries, dark poems, gothic tradition such as Daily Strange?
We would suggest, in fact, that the problem of a direct confrontation with reality especially applies to our magazine, since we deal with particularly with the occult, the supernatural, and phenomena usually opposed by established religion. We would point out too that this same established religion sector of the metaphysical world is the sector most fearful of any kind of reality.
If we were to follow the sterile practices of their conformity, our witches and sorcerers would then all be evil; vampires would cringe solely before crosses despite the myriad religions other than Christianity; voodoo drums invoking Dambala would be presented with obvious racist overtones, werewolves would all resemble Lon Chaney, Jr., our doctors and scientists would all be mad-and our total efforts would be directed toward not offending the power of the status quo. Instead, we would defend it. We would not dare contribute to the destruction of popular myths for fear of the cretins among us. We choose not to conform to patterns of nonsense. In terms of the 'realities' which the others fear, let us make a few points.
Any honest approach to an examination of witchcraft and related religions in this time of advanced sciences, for example, poses no contradictions. Indeed, it is only under this new and comparatively free conditions-devoid of persecution by state religions and their hierarchies that the black arts et al. can be objectively examined. The contradiction here-for it does exist-is that those who would mock the black arts as nonsense, themselves attend a denominational church service on Sundays, and involve themselves in the parallel frumpery of the very arts and religions they decry.
DAILY STRANGE's position is a simple one. We would, in the interest of honest research, examine all religions and mythos equally and objectively; neither denying or subscribing to their pretensions or claims. We would, however, a la Voltaire, fight for their right to parallel existence with each other-no burning stakes, gentlemen; no Ramadan holy wars; no Inquisitions, and no 'Chosen People.' All are equal in the DAILY STRANGE.
As a matter of fact, to extend this thinking into the area of shock for some of you, let me say this. If your editor were hauled into court tomorrow on some charge or other, he would ask that he be allowed to swear on the Necronomicon of the so-called 'mad Arab,' Abdul Alhazrid, as a pledge of his veracity. You see, we hold this and other books, such as the Torah, the Kama Sutra, the Book of Thoth, or whatever, as equally as potent and sacred as our highly-touted King James Version of the Bible. . . We suggest that a truly free society could do likewise-even to the point of allowing a detainee to swear on nothing at all.
Are we reaching you?
In terms of this real-world we're talking about, may we further suggest that it is, no historical accident that today-with the mass emergence of witchcraft and a hundred related sub-culture religions throughout the Western Hemisphere, that these same arts and religions identify with progress. They opt, as it were, for the free society for the simple reason that they can function in that free society, whereas until quite recently, in the controlled society of the Judeo-Christian world, they were not free but persecuted.
We all wish that the Corona-Monster will be collapsed but don't kid yourselves for a second. Our cute little hippy witches were damned serious. And they remain serious. And you editor, for one, takes them quite seriously-along with the equally serious attitude of the majority of the clergy who also protest Iraq and the Syria war. And that, too, is a part of our reality.
For DAILY STRANGE all religions exist as phenomena of the world of the unknown-if there be such-of the parallel world, as it were, of the real world. These religions exist, they are in motion. And they reflect quite strongly, from their particular points of view, the reality of the times in which we live. Conversely, and to a considerable degree, they also directly influence that reality.
DAILY STRANGE is vitally concerned with being knowledgeable of these phenomena, for they are, essentially, what we write about. An axiom for us is that the closer we are to both the phenomena and the world as it is-and not as the plastic people tell us it is-the more sophisticated, the more literary, and the more meaningful the work or the story. We absolutely subscribe to the theory that there is no content in stereotyped nonsense.
DAILY STRANGE will present no ridiculous, freaked out monster mummy to gurgle tana leaves, and to drag itself along at 1/8 of a mile per hour, through the fuzz-patroled, well-lighted suburbs of an American city: and no fruity Corona-Monster will grace our website to threaten the peace and quiet of our populace and thereby distract them from their real problems. We would suggest that the only King Kongs amongst us today are those not evidenced by their size but rather by their neanderthal thinking.
In effect, we say this: we do not suggest to any author that a werewolf, a sorcerer, a ghoul, a poltergeist, or what have you, be anything other than what the author wishes it to be. But! And here's the 'rub.' What we do say, is that the phenomenon must be viewed, to the best of the writer's ability, against the real background of the world in which we live. In effect, you can create a ghoul. But to create a non-sense world to support the existence of your ghoul-uh-unh. . . Our mail addresses, by the way, indicates this possibility.
We will wind this up with the salute of: yours for fat Trolls under bridges-and how they got there; and for poltergeists in the attic-and just what makes them so damned cantankerous. . . . Yours on the DAILY STRANGE
As visitors of my previous websites will know, and new visitors are about to find out, I compile my brand-new platform ''DAILY STRANGE'' with the aim of presenting only those stories that are both good and rare. I avoid like the plague those well known tales that have been used again and again which, while of excellent quality, are continually rammed down the poor old macabre enthusiast’s throat. Readers of ghost and horror stories—and there are none more faithful—will know from bitter experience the situation of being faced with a ‘new’ anthology, in which perhaps half the stories will already be in their possession, in other books.
The unfairness of this does not just extend to being forced to see the same old stuff again and again. To obtain those other stories they do not have, means paying today’s book prices (which are no joke) and getting what amounts to half the value of their money. They may rest assured that ''DAILY STRANGE'' contains only rare stories, either previously unpublished or else out of print for many years. It is obviously impossible to read everything, of course, but I have seen none of these tales anywhere, apart from their original publication.
I have cast my net fairly wide for this collection. There are tales included from established authors in the genre, others not so well known, and some just completely ignored. One or two stories are from authors more famous in other fields, and their efforts at macabre fiction will come as a pleasant surprise to you.
If you are reading this, then C.S. Fuqua needs no introduction. C.S. Fuqua has delighted followers of the horror and music genre for many years with his short fiction, novels, poems and his top educational music books, Native American Flute.
He is talented writer of many faces; his sensitive and moody style never falls to effect the reader's strongest emotions. C.S. Fuqua is the most generous and talented man I've ever seen.
His chilling tales have appeared in many professional anthologies-HORRORS & MUSIC-and that has earned him as one of horror's top short fiction writers.
His novel WALKING AFTER MIDNIGHT, was published 18 October 2016.
C.S. Fuqua was the first writer I have contacted after I founded CreepyWebsite.Com. I have made him over hundred questions for the interview. To my surprise, he replied in a matter of 3 days. Just several e-mails after, Fuqua sent me the one story from his novel Walking After Midnight (Walking After Midnight novel has 61 different & dark mystic stories).
That should tell you a good bit about C.S. Fuqua as a person and as a solid supporter of The Daily Strange. It is an honor and privilege to work with C.S. Fuqua. Chris has accepted to work with me on The Daily Strange. I'm so lucky to work with him. Our visitors will enjoy what he will create from now on... And we're ready to launch as Daily Strange...
