The Green Fairy is back

Absinthe Returns in a Glass Half Full of Mystique and Misery

Goths and poets rejoice! Absinthe now more widely available in America. My favorite snippet from the article describes Oscar Wilde's impressions:

...But even those who hailed absinthe saw unsettling shadows. Wilde explained: “After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see them as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world...”

Now I don't have to hang out till afterhours or beg for it at Horror writer conventions. :)
