It’s that time of the year again. Sweaters, and Pumpkins, and Goblins. Oh my! It’s time for Carl’s Readers Imbibing Peril number nine. I can’t wait to crawl under a blanket with a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a scary book.
This time will be different since it’s the first year I’ve worked during the fall. I’m still taking on 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.
I’ve got a short list of Want To Reads but they look so good!
- The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson
- The Scapegoat by Daphne duMaurier
- The Last Policeman by Ben Winters
- Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix
- Monstrous Affections (Anthology)
Also for Peril of the Short Story
- The Grey Woman by Elizabeth Gaskell (Librivox)
- The Camp of the Dog by Algernon Blackwood (Librivox)
- The Lake by Tananarive Due (Also a pick for A More Diverse Universe Week)
This is such a fun challenge and a great way to find more spooky books. My TBR list continues to grow and much of the problem is RIP!
