Halloween Month Plans
Well, it is mid-month. Mostly, the Halloween plans have gone off the rails. After last year's triumphant read of 31 horror short stories and novellas, I thought I would switch to the visual medium and try for 31 episodes of horror television. Night Gallery, THRILLER, Hammer House of Horror and The Outer Limits (original, of course!)
I am way behind on my viewing already. Plus the Red Sox are in the playoffs, and the further they go, the fewer nights for horror viewing.
Maybe I can do a marathon, but that's a long shot.
Perhaps a combination of reads, shows and movies will do the trick this year.
Not to say the genre is lacking for me this month. I did read Lumley's The Burrowers Beneath. I've seen a couple of THRILLER episodes and one Night Gallery episode. I am half-way through Blind Shadows by Charles R. Rutledge & James A. Moore. (And it is very good, btw.)
I'm still having fun with the Halloween spirit, and that's what counts.
