Doll Phobia?

January 20, 2012

Today I received the strangest publishing request ever:

Dear Mr. Bridges,

I publish a not-for-profit e-zine called PEA GREEN BOAT distributed free via the web ( The theme of our next issue is ‘Uncanny’ In this instance, uncanny is in reference to the psychological concept Das Unheimliche, that is, an occurrence or object which is familiar, yet repulsive at the same time. Part of that will be the phobia of dolls and, of course, Cabbage Patch Madness. I would like permission to reprint  a selection out of your blog “All dolls go to heaven”


Cathy Reed Weber

Seriously, how does one respond to that?
