I have been horrible at blogging lately but how could I not join this year's TENTH R.I.P.!! I love the celebration that Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings started and have been participating for a few years. This year The Estella Society is hosting the event. In case you haven't seen this before:
R.I.P. X officially runs from September 1st through October 31st.
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.
I think I am going to live dangerously this time and join in on this one:
Peril the First: Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (the very broad definitions) ofR.I.P. literature. It could be King or Conan Doyle, Penny or Poe, Chandler or Collins, Lovecraft or Leroux…or anyone in between.
I know I've already have one mystery under my belt, one of P.J. Brackston's fun A Brothers Grimm Crime Mystery. I am in the middle of reading a Poisoned Pen Press classic British mystery written in 1932 and I'm also starting Alan Furst's first Night Soldiers novel.
Don't you just love this season? I love that Carl's event just perfectly sums up how I feel about the changing weather and my favorite season.
