Listverse is one of my favorite sites for straight up murdering time. If you’ve never been there, and you like…anything really, go give it a look.
They had a list today on the top ten descriptions of hell. I want to do a Hell Lore post one of these days, but this will stand in until then. There are just so many ways cultures envisioned their peoples being punished. If you need villains, names, Bad Things, or just something to make a reader uncomfortable for your book, I couldn’t think of a better place to draw from.
