When you imagine a good son, you may conjure up the image of a child or man who always respects their parents or does something above and beyond the average son in some self-sacrificing way, but this list is not about those sons.
March 4th is National Sons Day (yes, there’s a National Son Day in September and a Son and Daughter Day in August - yes, it’s confusing), so now would be a good time to highlight some of the low-key goodest sons in literature. These are not the sons framed with blinding halos, but rather ones with glaring flaws, ones who’ve lost their fathers or mothers, or ones who quietly but deeply love their parents and deserve the title of goodest sons.

When it comes to sleepy literary icons, many of us think of Sleeping Beauty, Sleepy the Dwarf, or the dormouse from Alice in Wonderland, but what about the lesser known characters who fall asleep in public, and sometimes inappropriate, settings? Ones that could curl up on a park bench, nod off in class, or pass out on public transport?
February 28th is National Public Sleeping Day and to celebrate we’re highlighting characters who you may not first associate with sleepiness, but ones who could—or have—fallen asleep in public.

Imagine you're a struggling astronaut, tasked with trailblazing research on Mars, but as you go about your work, you’re plagued with questionable hallucinations of your past and future that slowly eat away at your sanity. If that concept doesn’t sound horrible enough, throw in some good ol’ tentacle wielding, sentient plant monsters straight out of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, and you’ve got yourselves the concept for Moons of Madness.
Indie game developer Rock Pocket Games’ first-person cosmic horror game released for PC in October of last year, but we wanted to celebrate the PS4 and Xbox game coming out March 24, 2020. What better way to do that than share a list of other literary monsters that would make amazing (and scary) video game enemies?
