Welcome to February’s magazine, the second one of this year. This issue contains 65 full-colour pages of Gothic analysis through what Carnival represents in our societies, how masquerading is portrayed in Gothic texts and how that is connected to our Shadow.


I also talk to you about the importance of Gothic music and its origins and will dive into a recent interview with my muse Ville Valo to bring some life lessons.


I revisit my interview with David Castleton, the first writer I met on Twitter, whose writing career revolves around eerie folklore and objects with a dark story.


Finally, you will read about Andrea and her encounter with a beautiful girl at the beach party.


For this special month, I have been working on the following articles:

· Masks, Carnival and your Shadow

· Music for the Gothic soul - Ville Valo

· Interview with writer David Castleton on Gothic curiosities and legends

· Storytime: Andrea’s new friend


I hope you enjoy every page and that they satisfy your curiosity.


I would also love to hear from you. How do you celebrate Carnival? What does it mean for you? Let me know by replying to me at
