Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VII (RIP VII for short) during the months of September and October. I’ve decided to join the celebration of all things “Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above.”
I will be going for:
Peril the First:
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be King or Conan Doyle, Penny or Poe, Chandler or Collins, Lovecraft or Leroux…or anyone in between.
Peril of the Short Story:
Read some R.I.P. themed short stories or a short story! Sounds like fun and a good excuse to dust off the Poe and that collection Lovecraft I picked up a while ago.
Peril on the Screen:
This is for those of us that like to watch suitably scary, eerie, mysterious gothic fare during this time of year. It may be something on the small screen or large. It might be a television show, likeDark Shadows or Midsomer Murders, or your favorite film.
Looking forward to the fun!
