    Hey guys... sorry for being MIA I've been out of town since late June...long boring story.

    Is anyone still interested in trying to set up a new meet with a new book? I so wanted to attend, but unfortunately I was out of town with a family obligation. I am back now and would like nothing more than to have another chance to meet and talk about a story or two. So what do you all think? Jaz?

    Well, I'll be there. I'll have the book out on my table/near me so you can find me. I realize my picture isn't very helpful, haha.

    So, something to think about for the read, and our June 23rd meet,
    Where are Kilborn's story and its individual scenes on Stephen King's "Terror," "Horror," "Gross-out" scale? See you all soon.

    I was hoping to get a tie breaker for the book so I pulled a name out of a hat and the winner was Afraid by Jack Kilborn

    I'll narrow it down to five, promise

      This is going to be super fun. I am excited, and I think that's pretty clear enough. See you soon.

    Caitlin Kiernan's “The Drowning Girl”

    May 14, 2013

    • Jaz

      I do want to read The Drowning Girl. I made a list from Goodreads this time and then I think we'll read from group suggested books.

    Hey guys, sorry about the delay. Things got a little crazy lately. I'm putting up the poll tonight.

    I suggest we share some:

    Early Short Story:
    Edgar Allen Poe “The Fall of the House of Usher”
    M.R. James (anything)
    Arthur Machen “The great God Pan”
    Robert W. Chambers “The Repairer of Reputations” from “ The King in Yellow,”
    H. P. Lovecraft “The Call of Cthulhu”*
    Robert E. Howard “Pigeons From Hell”
    Novel, Novella:
    Mary Wollstonecraf-Shelley “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus”
    Bram Stoker “Dracula”
    Richard Matheson “I Am Legion”
    William Blatty “The Exorcist”
    Stephen King “Salem's Lot,”
    Kathe Kojo “Skin”
    Brian Keane “Off Season”

    I suggest we shoot for the long haul.
    We could start with selections from early short works, then to ground-breaking pieces, serious mid-generation developers (first generation illegitimate children of HPL), post-WWII-Hollywood-tv-generation champions, post
