The 14th Annual Readers Imbibing Peril begins, running from 1 September to 31 October.
The aim is to read books in these categories:
Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, and Supernatural.
As usual, there are different levels to choose from and I will be aiming for Peril the First, which is:
Read four books, any length, that you feel fit (our very broad definitions) of R.I.P. literature. It could be Stephen King or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Shirley Jackson or Tananarive Due…or anyone in between.
