This seasonal challenge is being hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings. I look forward to it every Autumn! It runs from September 1st to October 31st, and there are a number of goals to choose from. Books that count as "perilous" include mystery, suspense, thriller, gothic, horror, and dark fantasy. Here are the levels that I am aiming for:
Read four books, of any length, from the very broad categories earlier defined as perilous. They could all be by the same author, a series of books, a random mix of classic and contemporary or whatever you like.
When I think of Autumn I think of the short stories of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Neil Gaiman, Roald Dahl. I am very fond of the short story and when I started R.I.P. I knew that it had to have a Peril of its own. Read one or many short stories throughout our two-month event and you will have taken on and overcame this Peril.
Thanks for hosting, Carl!
