R.(eaders) I.(mbibing) P.(eril) XIV

Thanks to a new follower (that’s you, Juliana), I’ve discovered this perfect September-October reading project that makes a good run-up to WitchWeek2019: Readers Imbibing Peril XIV, aka RIP14, 2 months devoted to reading scary tales. Mystery, horror, dark fantasy, Gothic, suspense: any genre that raises the hairs on the back of my neck and makes me leave the lights on all night long will fit. See ReadersImbibingPeril.com for details.

Since I’m feeling a bit over-committed, what with my year-long Melville’s 200th project and planning for Witch Week, I’m going to keep this simple and promise at least 2 reviews for RIP. And I’ll admit at this point that I’ll be double-dipping, using novels/novellas/stories/etc already slated for Melville or Witch Week.

My two definite reads are Poe’s dark seafaring tale, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, and a new graphic novel version of Beowulf. We’ll see what happens after that.

Bwaa-ha-ha-ha!

    Any review or book discussion from you is always welcome, Lizzie, whatever the subject or genre! 🙂

  2. Just getting my RIP list together….

    Beowulf is one of my favorite stories and since it is so visual, I can easily see it as a graphic novel. I’ll be interested to see what you think of this one.

      Definitely a perfect story to adapt for the graphic novel genre, Laurie. I may have to reread Beowulf itself before I write the review — I’m always looking for an excuse to read another book!
