Finished A Long Fatal Love Chase on Saturday. I plan on reviewing it on Thursday. This week:
- Dead & Buried by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro – This is the second pick from my #RIPXIII TBR jar. Can’t say I’m too enthusiastic about it, but a pick is a pick.
- Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury – For #SomethingWickedFall. Which reminds me, Michelle posted the first discussion post yesterday.
- Candyman by Jon Towlson – This book is part of the Devil’s Advocate book series of horror film criticism. Candyman (dir. Bernard Rose, 1992) is one of my favorite horror movies. I’m also reading the original Clive Barker story, “The Forbidden.”
- Plus Paradise Lost, Black Cat short stories, and who knows what else!
Not very R.I.P., but I rewatched Logan Lucky over the weekend. I do love a good comedy heist.
Also not on the spooky side, but I started listening to the Secret History of the Future podcast. It’s a joint effort between Slate and The Economist, hosted by Seth Stevenson and Tom Standage, author of The Turk. Indeed, the first episode is about the mechanical Turk and the “trick” that is some of today’s AI. I’m about three episodes in and they’ve all been good.
