Multo — the Tagalog word for ghost.
This started as a blog about ghosts — literal, fictional, and metaphorical. It’s become more generally a blog about aspects of the supernatural in literature and in folk culture. I write about folklore, ghost stories, weird fiction, and on occasion about movies or music. And sometimes I just write about reading and writing, or anything else that I feel like.
I hope when you come here that you find something new that you didn’t know about before. Enjoy.
Either ghosts are a metaphor for history, or history is a metaphor for ghosts.

Folklore articles I’ve written for the #FolkloreThursday blog.
Some articles originally written for the Non Stop Bhangra and Dholrhythms blogs: pieces about Punjabi music, culture and folklore, especially as they relate to Dholrhythms Dance Company and San Francisco’s Non Stop Bhangra monthly party. These articles are now on my other blog, Ephemera.
