A Random Blog of Everything I like
R.I.P VIII has started
My work has kept me from reading…I am not saying that I stop reading, it’s more to I hardly have time to read but I am still reading. It’s hard to separate me completely from books or written story.
Despite the fact I am not sure whether I can read even a book for this challenge…but I join in anyway
R.I.P is a challenge to read or watch movie with a theme of Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural, Or anything sufficiently moody that shares a kinship with the above. That is what embodies the stories, written and visual, that we celebrate with the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril event.
R.I.P. VIII officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
Here are the possibility of the perils I will do for the next two months:
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. Share the review on review site.
Peril of the Short Story:
I am a big fan of short stories and my desire for them is perhaps no greater than in Autumn. I see Poe and Lovecraft in my future for sure, and some Angela Carter. You can read short stories any time during the challenge. When I can, I like to read short stories over the weekend and post about them around that time. Feel free to do this however you want, but if you review short stories on your site (not a requirement) please link to those reviews on the Review Site.
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, like Dark Shadows or Midsomer Murders, or your favorite film. If you are so inclined, please post links to any R.I.P.-related viewing you do on to the Review Site as well.
My first Peril On The screen will be posted tomorrow
