What trickier is this?! Andi and Heather hosting the RIP X Challenge? Why yes! The Estella Society is hosting this year’s Readers Imbibing Peril Challenge. The spookiest time of the year. As usual, I pick Peril the First
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 have a list of six at the moment, but I always claim the right to add or subtract to it.
- House on the Borderlands by William Hope Hodgson
- Jezebel’s Daughter by Wilkie Collins
- Ring by Koji Suzuki
- The Last Man by Mary Shelley
- Ghost Summer by Tananarive Due
- Grotesque by Natsuo Kirino
I also have Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s Ghostly Tales (Volume 1) ready for Peril the Short Story. I absolutely have to have some gothic frights for my RIP list!
I hope you’ll join in for a frightful couple of reading months! BOO!
