I’ve been reading great stuff as ‘research’ for my Madness and Women in Literature course. So, okay. It started out as research but now it’s just fun. I read “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” by Shirley Jackson…which is a vibrantly colorful messed-up read. Plus the cover is fantastic.
I’m currently reading Stephen King’s nonfiction “Danse Macabre” where he talks about the horror genre and Peter Straub’s “Ghost Story”.
What with Cthulhu living in my walls, all of this has inspired me to write an actual, real live ghost story. Oh, it’s so very fun. Fingers crossed, you’ll see what I’m talking about later.
