r.i.p. – quite appropriate considering i’ve been a walking corpse these days (in internet land).
deary me. our laptop just won’t get fixed. each time we send it off it only works for a few hours (literally) and then zonks out again. which is useful. this has been going on for more than a month now and as you can imagine is very frustrating!
on top of that i have had almost zero time for any internet browsing at work since i’ve been working like a maniac for the last few months. so i apologise for my internet invisibility.
but the rip challenge has arrived, and one thing i can share with you is reading horror books! 😀 i hope you all get your hands on some interesting choices and get lots of chills and thrills! i can’t wait to read some of your reviews when i get back. even if i have to print up some and take them home, i will get around to reading some reviews – as sharing and being a part of this experience is one of the things i most look forward to in the year!
so, what am i reading!? well, i have a feast of horror that awaits me!
peculia by richard sala
gothic humour comic of a girl who gets herself into all sorts of scrapes when she goes for walks in the woods. witches, monsters, madmen and evil children. hooray!
i’m really enjoying working my way through the classics. i read “dracula” last year and “dr. jeckyll and mr. hyde” the year before that. franke – here i come!
the werewolf of paris by guy endore
vampires? check. monsters? check. zombies? check. werewolves? check.
i’ve never read a werewolf story. its funny how they’re the only guys who haven’t had much popularity lately. vampires and zombies are doing great, but poor old werewolves… they’re relegated to small parts played by seth green or cheap-ass b-grade films. so i’m looking forward to unleashing the beast! 😀
poe – selected poetry
i’ve never read any poe and carl has really inspired me with his love for him! i’m particularly looking forward to reading the raven as i’ve seen and read so many allusions to it!
savage membrane – steve niles
i’m a big fan of steve niles’ cal mcdonald! i love the mix of noir and monsters. it works so well because you always have the poor beleaguered pi who bemoans his existence and with monsters in the mix this guy really has every excuse to moan! 😀
the graveyard book
just in time for rip III! thank you neil 🙂
