About the Blogger


The Sanguine Woods (TSW) was started by writer, editor, poet, and blogger Mick A. Quinn in 2012 as a literary blog. He wanted a place where he could feature fiction, graphic design/art work, photography, poetry, and thoughts on the work of others in those and other creative areas.

TSW quickly took on a life of its own, going off into areas such as the “Fortean” and the macabre; the socially conscious; the darkly photographic; many things “Lovecraftian”; and even the poetics of song lyrics. TSW now covers a miscellany of topics about which Mick is passionate.

Mick is editing his first anthology of vintage ghost stories, which will be published in December 2019 (Vol. I) and October 2020 (Vol. II) by Wick Press: The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Told, ed. by Sanguine Woods (Mick’s penname) please follow this effort (link below) and support him!


Mick’s other blogs include a fiction blog, The Starving Writers Club; and a food blog featuring recipes he’s tried himself and swears by, The Colorado Cucina.

Mick also dabbles as time allows in the ever-interesting areas of UFOs, high strangeness, ancient aliens, forbidden archaeology, and conspiracy theories at The Extraterrestrial Highway.

Mick lives in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. You can reach him using the Comments feature on any of the above blogs or via email and—though he’s not much of a “tweeter”—you can follow him on Twitter:



Thanks for stopping by, mate.

Don’t be a stranger.🌿✌️

  8. What a great blog! I teach courses about ghost stories, have written two ghost story books (including stories which are funny as well as eerie) and a nonfiction book about ghosts. I found E F Benson, M R James, Kipling, and other authors I discovered as a young person here (and it’s great to have a place those who study with me can find their assigned reading!). I’m delighted to have discovered this site and will be spending lots of time here! Keep up the great work – just amazed and thrilled to have discovered Sanguine Woods! best, Jan O.
