Regarding this site
My name is Michael McCuen, and I can no longer keep these things to myself.
Since the age of two I have been plagued with vivid and disquieting dreams. Early in childhood I developed a deeply morbid curiosity.
I put these down to being a remarkably active sleepwalker, and for having as a child witnessed the drowning death of my Mother's fiancé (she was to re-marry due to my actual father having abandoned us shortly after my birth).
This site is my attempt to shift to the web the furiously scribbled notes from dream journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, photographs, and collections of curiosities.
Do be warned that there will be mention of things both grisly or disturbing from time to time.
The contents of the site are not in any chronological order (at least not at the beginning). The entries appear in the order I happened to enter them.
Of particular interest to those with morbid sensibilities is "The Dreadful Scrapbook", containing gruesome news articles from an 1895 scrapbook I obtained long ago, and a sizable collection of Victorian Post-Mortem photographs.
Having only just begun this work, you must bear with me while I add more content. The layout of the site may change from time to time as I try to organize my thoughts.
I hope to at least hold your interest. Thank you for visiting.
