Mick Albright

The Sanguine Woods (TSW) was started by writer and blogger, Michael “Mick” Albright in 2014 as a literary blog. He wanted a place where he could feature his own fiction, graphic design/art work, 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.

Other blogs Mick owns and contributes to include The Writer’s Cabin; a Gothic arts blog called The Gothic Tower; a trans-friendly and burlesque-y blog on feminine and fashion in history called The Maudlin Cabinet; all of which are administered by his partner, Woody Dexter, who has two brand-new, wicked-cool blogs called The Extraterrestrial Highway (link below) and Haint-Blue Shudders.


Woody Dexter

In 2015, Mick took on a blogger and publisher partner*, fellow writer and academic and lover of the Fortean, the alien, and the mysterious: Woodrow Dexter Wilson (Woody D). Woody, is an anthropologist by profession, and currently working toward his MA/PhD. He is a very talented writer in his own right, and administers and provides content for the team’s blogs and handles layout and design and production for Sanguine Woods Publishing*, the company formed by Mick and Woody in mid-2016.

In 2017, Woody launched an impressive new blog on all things alien and conspiratorial called The Extraterrestrial Highway. Who doesn’t like a good UFO mystery? A peek into Area 51? Conspiracy Theories abound! And this is the place to go to learn about them.
