"Two or Three" Book Club, Meeting 12
So you remember what I was saying about going all out for October . . . ? What that means for the "Two or Three" Book Club is a Horror novel. You probably already know what's coming, but let me drag it out a little. =P
The beauty of declaring a theme beforehand is like the beauty of a scratched up metallic surface when a candle is set before it. (If you were on of those who read George Eliot's Middlemarch with me off this blog, then that image probably rang a bell!) As the scratches seem to rearrange themselves into a perfect halo, totally random accidents seem like magical gifts falling into pre-ordained places. After I announced the Burial Grounds theme for next month's Locus Focus (You're totally linking up, right?) and silently worried that I wouldn't be able to complete my own challenge, a slew of literary and cinematic cemeteries
You'd be surprised at how many final resting places there are in fiction--and how diverse they are! . . . Or maybe not! ;-)
Two books with prime Burial Ground settings are now up for consideration as "Two or Three" Book Club picks. But we can only have one . . .
