Read & Reading I did indeed finish The History of Soul 2065 and reviewed it on Friday. While at the library last week I also read a slim volume of humorous poems titled Love Poems (for Married People). I might do a short review with it and a few other things this upcoming week, if … Continue reading Sunday Salon, 6/16/19

Read & Reading Didn't do a lot of reading this week. I'm continuing on with The Count of Monte Cristo and started the June 1896 issue of The Black Cat.

Read Didn't finish anything this past week. I did finally get into some short stories I haven't read in the complete, unabridged Edgar Allan Poe that I'm reading. The delightful macabre surprise among the stories thus far is "MS. Found in a Bottle," a creepier version of "A Descent into the Maelström." Deal Me In: … Continue reading Sunday Salon, 5/12/2019

Read Was it really only this past week that I read The Hellbound Heart? It's been a long week. I talked about the Clive Barker novella in my Spring into Horror post. I also finished Lady Molly of Scotland Yard by Baroness Orczy, which I started back in February. I'll maybe post about it this … Continue reading Sunday Salon, 5/5/2019
