We are having a cool snap here (our highs have been in the low 90's for several days--with low humidity), and I find myself mentally preparing for autumn. Soon we will have Carl's annual RIP Challenge to help us into the mood. Here are some of his latest Gothic/Horror reviews.
I love Swanbone's art; the visual fairy tales she creates have not necessarily been written, but I know she has recorded episodes in her head, that there must be a before and after to her gothic fairy tale art.

What I want to read right now are gothic tales. Good RIP Challenge books. Some of my favorites in this category: The Thirteenth Tale, The Woman in White, The Turn of the Screw, The Historian, Seance, Rebecca....
Stories about haunted houses, ghosts, witches--supernatural and suspenseful stuff. I'm a fan of Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly series, and she has a new one Grave Secret that I'll look for.
