Thanks to Carl for the entertaining R.I.P Challenge. I read some interesting books and have accumulated a long list of TBR titles from participating bloggers. I'm still waiting for about 5 more books that will go into the bonus R.I.P. category.
My R.I.P. list:
- House on the Borderlands - W.H. Hodgson
- Lolly Willowes - Sylvia Townsend
- Death in the Garden - Elizabeth Ironside
- The Wyvern Mystery - Sheridan LeFanu
- The Haunted Hotel - Wilkie Collins
Only one of these authors (Wilkie Collins) had I read before, although LeFanu was one I kept saying I was "going to read" --someday. I think I learned something from all of them.
(favorites, by a long shot, #3 and #5; all have been reviewed somewhere on this blog)
- The Keep - Jennifer Egan
- A Coldness in the Blood - Fred Saberhagen
- Grave Sight - Charlaine Harris
Carl and Angela (and anyone else interested in science fiction), here is an article that could be developed into countless science fiction novels! Not that most of it hasn't been done before, but it provides a new impetus for futuristic novels.
