SPRING INTO HORROR READATHON--April 17-30

Forge ahead into Spring with a full-out Horror binge. A creation of SEASONS OF READING. Sign up here: http://seasonsreading.blogspot.com/2017/04/signup-for-spring-into-horror-readathon.html

SPRING INTO HORROR READATHON begins today. As this is my lifetime favourite genre, reading Horror is not a problem. (smile) I'll be continuing my "every-evening-Laymon-reading" which I commmenced about three weeks ago. I am working my way through the oeuvre of late horror meister Richard Laymon, literally every evening. I read review titles days, Laymon at night.

I want to recommend an anthology I can't include in this Readathon, since I read it April 14-16.
It's NORTHERN FRIGHTS: AN ANTHOLOGY OF THE HORROR WRITERS OF MAINE, a truly outstanding collection of spine-tingling, hair-raising, horror set in Maine, by Maine authors.releassed April 11, 2017. See my review here. http://thehauntedreadingroom.blogspot.com/2017/04/review-northern-frights-anthology-by.html
